I’m wondering…just wondering.
What can I do to convince “Free Software to Students” that I am a Student. Also I have Collegiate Freshman Gran daughter in my house going to school.
You guys seem to like MAYA. What others might listen to me?
thudpucker sorry didnt see you there! You cant convince people to use free software because they will think that something expensive works better Free alternatives are just as good and sometimes better. Super specialty software will remain though because it is impossible to make free applications that cover everything.
I found this youtube channel by CGspectrum where they have a lot of beginner friendly intro videos on 3D character animation, making demo reels and concept art composition etc. I think they post their first lessons as free content and I found them really useful and accessable. Hope you guys can get some use out of it too!
Mostly dynamics and effects material but they have an introduction to Maya course that covers the basics as well. Great instructors though…
Thanks vfxescapee. That link doesnt seem to work though.
Cheers and thanks for the contribution.
