in my very early days in professional field in 2002, I applied for a job as graphic desinger for a magazine. I was called for an interview in a very small company. The HR department guy said before interview began… do you know quarkxpress? I said no. He replied… hmmm may be you won’t get job. because it’s first priority. I was silent. When I was called to the interview room. I was asked the same question and I answered… Are you more concern to the output quality or tools. And they said output quality. then why only quarkxpress… ? and you know what they replied…that made me LOL…
they said. .“We have seen great stuff done in quarkxpress” … :applause: (perhaps they found a new tool and thought guys have done great work because of new tool etc)
I said… do you know how titanic movie was made?
they all said with one word… 3Ds MAX … (while that was not used at all, and they would have answered because they were only familiar with one 3D software).
Till a few years back, many of 3D guys used to think that blender is because free, so how can a quality be produced in a free application. ?
. If you have created a handful portfolio with the excellent quality done in BLENDER, then be confident. The relevant department will be impressed.
Also do tell them, never stay stick with one application only!.
Do you know how many applications were used for Avatar?
20+ softwares Autodesk, Adobe, Houdini, Foundry, Eyeon, Zbrush, Mudbox, lightwave, and many more and countless plugins were used for each platform.
Also… How would they use 3Ds max on MAC??? never, then they would have to convert for MAYA.
I was impressed by one movie. done in blender
Soooner or later, you will see blender is one of the leading application in 3D industry.
