  • Amazing tutorial for Maya users looking to switch to 3ds Max

    Really helpful, short and to the point. Love the idea of the short videos which makes it really easy to navigate and refresh your memory. Also, the short videos help in digesting the information in bite sizes and doesn’t bore the viewer. However, the speaker has a heavy accent which some people might find it hard to understand. Personally, it doesn’t bother me, as I find him clear and well-spoken.

    Especially helpful for environment artists/modelers who are looking to switch from Maya to Max. Highly recommend!
