“autodesk maya review”

OverallI have an excellent experience in Maya I like to do the troubleshooting in Maya in my projects as it gives me the opportunity to learn more and make the grip on animation more and more and I like to use Maya all time
Prosthe first feature which I like in the Maya is by pressing shift we can access tools which I required I also like Maya interface different interface for everything like modelling, animation, rigging, etc I also like its plugins feature of using any plugins and the dynamics fart of Maya is too good and also modelling using curves makes it too easy
Consthe least about this software is rendering its doesn't give us the option to batch render for free with Maya that's not good its specially for animation an if the batch rendering is not available how can anyone use that animation and it has soo many things that no one can learn also its ease of use is also not good you try to make it more ease in use

“Industry standard, but slow to adopt new methods”

OverallMaya's has a lot of good, but its slow, primarily mouse-based modeling technique provides no advantages to hotkey modeling (unlike, for example, Houdini, which makes up for its slower initial creation speed with unparalleled speed of modification through procedural techniques). Modo and Blender are at the cutting edge of software for modeling, but maya has advantages in Animation.
ProsThe main selling point of Maya, at this point, is its status as an industry standard. Working in Maya allows for ease of transfer between organizations as most make use of it.
ConsAutodesk fails to provide a modeling suite centered on speed and is slow to adopt advances made by other leading modeling suites, such as rounded edge shaders for normal baking.

“An advanced 3D rendering software”

ProsThe render quality on videos made with Maya is amazing. It has enough features, options and presets to help you create great pieces faster. Once you learn how to use it, you'll probably will be able to use any other 3D designing software.
ConsThis is not an app for starters. You need to know some theory as well as gain some practice first. Also, the price is quite expensive. Even more if you want to keep updated to the latest version!

“The best of the best in 3D design for professional use”

OverallI used it in an interactive logo project of a web page.
ProsIt is the most complete 3D design program ever created, the possibilities of 3D mesh and solids editing is almost infinite, the module to generate movement is great for the great variety of effects and simulations to generate realistic movements.
ConsOne of its negative characteristics is undoubtedly the price, it is very expensive to acquire the program, in addition the learning process of the modules and tools can be quite complex. especially for beginners.

“Industry Standard for a reason”

OverallIt's served me well and most cg houses seem to have a place at the table for it.
ProsI find it quite a bit easier than its direct competitors. Also it's always good when it incorporates new content that used to need plugins.
ConsIt would be really nice if the Arnold integration wasn't a separate purchase

“Great for modeling”

ProsMaya is a good start for modeling and texturing, etc, and it is easy to model quickly
ConsIt is very buggy, and it crashes often; the autosave feature is a joke

“i'm still undecided about what's better between maya and blender”

ProsIt has a lot of really good functionalities, but it can't do everything that blender can. on the other hand, blender is a harder that maya to learn in a lot of parts. i would generally advise to start out with one of the two and just stick with it
Consit costs quite a bit given that there are really good free alternatives out there. the node editor feels quite weird

“Good tool to make animations, but not for beginners”

OverallSome of its features have not excited me much because of the difficulty of using it, but I have colleagues who love it, so it's worth trying it
ProsI have been using it for a short time and although maybe I have not taken all the advantage it should be a useful tool to create 3D animations
ConsIt is a somewhat complicated program to use, it is not an act for beginners, some of its tools are difficult to understand
