Hi everyone. I may be looking at doing some further training in 3D and need some advice.
Does it make much difference if you do your training in 3D Studio Max or Maya? For example, if you did it all in Maya, but then went for a job with a company that used Max, would it matter?
There is a company I'm looking at that says it's a Discreet accredited trainer for Max. Has anyone gone through this avenue of training? Would you recommend it? Some of their courses go for only a week or even 2 days intensive. I wouldn't have thought this to be possible. What are your thoughts? They offer their training in lots of week/2 day courses, or the whole lot in one big chunk over about 5 months (the second option is a lot cheaper). Doing the big 5 month chunk is $6,857.37 USD. Does that sound reasonable? They claim that after doing this course, (and providing of course you have talent as well!) you'll be pretty snapped up by the industry as you'll have more than enough of what they're looking for.
I'd really appreciate anyone's thoughts and opinions on this.
