all the arguments people make are based on a personal preference,and asking such a question on a maya focused forum is fantastically biased and therefore pointless?

i agree. this is simply maya because this forum is full of maya users. Asking a maya user which program is better is pointless because everyones going to say maya. everything is personal preference and you gotta find which one you can work better in. I mean its good to know all because if you get a job, you dont know if they want to use maya, max, xsi or whatever..... but once you know one, its easy to pick up the others

I believe earlier that someone defended Max earlier in the thread. So that proves that just becuase we all use Maya here doesn't mean we are all crazy over it.

Default righty

yeah, ok I haven't posted much in this thingie, but..
ok, I've used 3D max, and so have my other friends, in fact, I used it before Maya.

In some aspects, 3D max is easier. Like when it comes to putting clothes on characters.

But, overall, I like Maya 7 better. I haven't gotten the Maya 8 upgrade, but I hope it's not too different or too like 3D max.

Anywho, that's just my opinion!!

It's all opinionated!:blush:

Im new to these forums so hi.

I bought some points and all that and plan on a great time learning ''character modeling'' in maya..

..I say ''character modeling'' like that because I work as a 3d architectural designer using 3DMax and Vray.

I like organic modeling, and while I love Max, it seems to me that there are far more tutorials and resources out there for Maya than Max.. and it seems also that Maya is used for that genre of modeling more so.

So I guess since I have a job using one program and Max is a very great program for architectural modeling (afterall, its Autodesk), I will use Maya for all the organic modeling.

I do find it a bit difficult to learn since Ive used Max, but its nothing I can't figure out.

But to add to the thread, its a pointless argument. Both are great programs for what I see, so choose one at first and learn it for what you're trying to get into. After you become a ''master'' at one, then learn the other. Learning both at the same time takes away all concentration and time with one.

O well. Cheers and thx for a pretty cool site.

I'm using Max right now at my job and as I am getting more familiar with it, I really don't see much difference in the two. There are a few tools that I like Maya better, such as the UV editor (can't stand Max's), but overall, they're practically the same.

I know alot of people are put off by mayas 8 "Max-like" poloygon modlering but just figured a way on how to turn that off. I`m now liking the few changes they have made. But heres hoping thats the last of the max like changes they make.

Max I keep going back to as its what I strarted with, but even the latest verson sucks.

Anyone know which thread I sould post the maya 8 fix in

anyone want to know message me
