it just seems like 3d stuio max is the most "popular" program. But if i could choose i would definently choose maya, because its so easy to work with
Maya and Max are pretty well interchangable -- they're both used for the same amount of commercial applications (along with XSI to a small percent -- visible in Reboot and the other "Mainframe production" videos)
If you're trying to find out which is better, you're going to be disappointed in the answers you say because its going to be so conflicting due to each person's experiences. For example, I prefer maya by a long shot due to my crappy experiences with 3dStudioMax trial -- though I get into chats all the time with people who swear by it (and who rubbed it in my face when Alias was bought by Autodesk -- smacktards).
Again, again, again, again -- 3dsMax, Maya -- who cares? What can YOU produce with each?
