  • Great course!

    If you’re like me and you learnt Maya through Youtube/Udemy or similar sites but felt you didn’t really ‘know’ Maya then this course is perfect. It filled in so many gaps in my knowledge, even in tools I had used many times before. Highly recommend anyone who uses Maya to get this, as the solid foundation it gives you is incredible.

  • You are not learning only tools, you get to see your future workflow

    Ok so i knew 3D before getting this course (cinema 4D), and I have been trying out Maya too. But this course was so helpful to understand not only where the buttons are in Maya but the workflow you can have in this software. I finished the course, but i do keep it handy just to refresh some concepts if needed. Way more accurate than googling your answer.

    I wanted to fill up some knowledge gaps that I had with the software and I´m really happy with the things I have learned and I highly recommend this course

    • Yeah I love their stuff but they have done this before in the past. It is as if they assume EVERYONE uses MAC and just ignores the fact that most of the population actually uses Windows..

      • Thanks for your feedback! Where have we done this in the past? Let us know and we’ll fix it! Our courses are all made on Windows and all files should work on both Windows and Mac 🙂
