Default I GOT MAYA, *dances*

If anyone remembers me i was here a while ago. Anxiously awaiting when i would be getting maya. And then i got it... but didnt have the correct computer spects, so i used lightwave. I just recently aquired a computer capable of running it and finally started.

I already went through about 4 tutorials and like it. Some minor complications but other than that much smoother than other modelers ive used...

Okay.... just had to let someone know, i tell anyone here i got maya they will just look at me like i slaughtered a cow in a cornfield..

Hey, everyone needs a fetish. Yeah ive seen you around too, as i remember you were a really fast modeler(which from what ive seen is rare/very good). Maybe i can pick up tips from you and others. That is why i am here afterall. (and boredom at 3am)

Hi hybrid, been a while(like 2 hours).

I dont know whats so bad about programming, i loved other programming styles and about to learn C++, maybe mel scripting would be good for me.

And yes... i am pure evil

Yeah if you're C++ savvy, then it shouldn't be hard to pick up, but since i really never got into programming, i'm going to spend quite some time just to understand it

You have to have the mindset for programming. Some peopel just can do it, others just cant. The "in the box" people generally have a very difficult time with it. Where "outside the box" people tend to be great with it.

Just barely learning C++, not savvy with it at all, but im very good with most basic style programming command logic style like Visual Basic and Quick basic.

Been staring at the screen for about 5 hours straight working on maya... and got nearly nothing done.

Distractions are a killer eh?
