Next september I´ll learn character animation using this software. What do u guys think of this software comparatively with, for example, 3d studio max? All I know is that the guys at valve used this in the development of half life 2.

But njkt, have u tried other packages like 3ds max?

I have tried 3DS Max in the past. Let's just say, there's a bit of a learning curve. However, this comes with most animation software, and as far as an easy learning curve goes, it fairs quite a bit better than Maya. [wink]

Anyway, even though I haven't PERSONALLY tried the software, I've heard nothing but good about it, so I'm sure you'll be quite pleased, happy, even surprised. [smile]

I've used and use MAX, Maya and XSI. All 3 have their good points and bad points but the same results can be achieved with these packages with the same methods. Thats the real gem about 3d modeling, once you nkow the techniques all the tools are pretty much the same.

That said though, here are what i think are the strongest points about workflow in each of these packages:

MAX has the bst workflow when it comes to MODELING tools.
MAYA has the best ANIMATION workflow.
XSI has the best shader and RENDERING workflow.

Hope this helps a little!

Anyways, www.3dBuzz.com is a really good resource for anyone learning a 3d package. Check it out!
