Fapping part is just pure spite, I don't tell that part to my parents lol. Atheism part is just a side effect of becomming scientifically litterate
and developing an understanding of the actual history of this place and what it tells us about what we are and how we fit in with the evidence of that story.

I am either stupid or Maya is extremely cumbersome unless heavily customized or you learn to use the pie menu like some mythical god.
I have worked in 3ds max and blender for a few years and i tried to get into Maya, someone please give me some motivation or im just going to give up and stick to those two because going into menus for every operation will drive me nuts.

Good for retopo tho, that thing they have down from what i have experienced so far. Edge relaxing is cool tool

oh and,
Can you customize mouse navigation?
Can you get rid of the stupidly high thickness of the edges when you crease them?
Is the nurbs modeler worth it or should i go straight for rhino?

...which is what made me surprised in the first place. I don't deny it does. I fail to see where it connects with maya modelling tools.
as for tools themselves, they are surely adequate, but work with them long enough on complex geo and you will notice they are utterly FUCKED, in worst sense of the word.
before I swallowed the sculpt pill, I used maya extensively. I still value maya as major part of my operations, but modelling something there from scratch, if it's complex enough? no-no.
I can't even count how many times I had to do the obj reexport to save meshes maya breaks.
at some point, even with usual flushing history and cutting connections history flushing might still leave(another maya quirk, one might expect it would just cut them for good, nope sometimes it doesn't), any operation with faces will just flat out break the mesh no matter what.
when simple loop cut shoots half of the grid into space, when simple quad append just deletes half of your mesh it becomes highly unpleasant to work with.
which is frustrating because I like fluidity pie menus give me.
>>
>>677767
i think the implication was that since maya is the primary DCC it remains the primary means of poly modelling in that space. i'm not going to speak to this as i have no experience in the field.


t b h i guess i've just been lucky and maya hasn't blown up my work in an irretrievable manner just yet (i've always run a rolling 50 file back up). i'm sure it'll happen to me at some point and i'll be too stubborn to move over to something else.

i do wish though that since, under the hood, much of maya is node-based, that they surfaced that stuff to users as the primary means (i'm well aware that it's just one sub-menu away, i just wish it was the default) of interaction with that system instead of the infuriating tab-style attribute editor.
>>
>>677767
I don't work in the VFX industry but i know that a lot of studios us Maya for modelling. Yes you heard that right. They don't use or even have Max its either modelling in Maya or sculpting in Zbrush.
I have used Maya extensively in the last decade and i had maybe 5 cases of Maya fucking up a mesh like that. Always with files i had from somebody else, never with my own stuff. So, i am not too paranoid using Maya for modelling especially for the more complex stuff, for easier stuff i actually use Blender.

2.8 or 2.7?

All the tutorials and materials (including huge amount of books I got for free as a local college was throwing them away) are for 2.7, but learning 2.8 seems more future proof as it's an almost complete overhaul of UI and it is the future and will be a standard for a while.

In classes and in my imagination, making low-poly furry games, the 3D business seems fun, but browsing youtube and /3/ makes overly worried over redlines of vertex. I regret dropping PhD in romantic comedies so much.

Depends. How much glute are you animating? Topology is used for easier texturing and animating. My suggestion is to not worry about it and do it. You can always remake your model, and when you do, you will either be frustrated with what you did or not really care that you did it that way.

The general trend is to move away from - say - layer or stack based approaches.

Node graphs are nothing new. PRISMS(Houdini's predecessor) had nodes from the start(1987), compositing tools like Media Illusion had nodes since 1990.

Untangling - say - a project in a non-nodal software passed on from another artist took me way longer. You have no idea how much time I wasted in the last 20 years getting into 3ds/maya/lightwave scenes that other artists and companies tossed to me without any comment.

This. It shouldn't be an issue unless the node graph is for something really complicated, which would mean it's probably really niche, or you are a brainlet.

i'm >>677956
and i sort of agree. i don't rig very often, so i can't speak to that, but in houdini, when given a choice between writing vex in a wrangle and doing a node graph in a VOP, i'll usually pick the wrangle because doing logic operations in a node graph is quite honestly, more complicated. that's not to suggest that VOP node networks have no worth - they can be fun if you just want to fuck around an explore new things without having to dive into the docs.

as far as shading is concerned though, i'll take a nodegraph over anything else since it just feels easier to explore options and organise things.

that said i'd take node graphs over what this >>677982
anon describes in almost any scenario.
>>
>>677952

I mean, I used to feel that way, too. It definitely is daunting at first. But after a certain amount of time using it, you eventually see the beauty of a system organized like this. It's like people who swear by Maya's Hotbox system: at first, it's annoying as fuck, but after spending enough time in it, it becomes natural.
