Which do you prefer?
Personally I like Maya best, but that's just my preference...

XSI and Maya.

Lightwave looks good, but its a bit weird.

3Ds Max is a pita to try and use for me.. I dont like it very much.

edit: this probably should be in 3D Design , it is a software comparison, but its more relevant to the people that go to the 3D Design forum, thus better chances of response there.

I learned in 3DS Max, so it's my choice.

out of the others, I've barely used Maya and XSI. But they're ok, I'd just need ot take the time to learn.

And that's the thing, in reality, there's not much different between them, if you know how to use them.

funnily enough XSI has been modeled after Maya to try and get users to convert.

I like Max, I spent so long using it before I tried XSI and Maya that I had an absolute mind screw trying to get past the UI's.

3D Studio Max ftw!
Tried Maya, can see that why people use it, but wont be switching to it from Max which is very similar apart from different ways of doing things.

I initially learned on Lightwave and psp, got max and photoshop and forgot how to use both lightwave and psp :P

Apart from the native dynamics, advanced materials and NURBS systems in Maya I think Max is the better, almost all systems for Maya have been ported (or the same system has been developed 3rd party) to Max, theres even a Massive clone :D.

And since the Alias acquisition Max has gotten better, so far it is just preference between Max and Maya, thankfully Autodesk hasn't specialized both pieces of software yet.

Get a personal learning edition.
Or there is Bittorent.
Both options are good, so it's up to you...

Are you serial?
The XSI interface looks nothing like Maya...

just because the copywrited ui's are different doesn't mean the underlying processes are as well, each piece of software goes about things differently, the way XSI does it is modeled after Maya.

eh, whats the point in replying, looking at every other post you've made on this site any sort of intelligent conversation with you is moot.

I'm thinking of switching to MAK - I tried it before and it felt similar to Maya just less pretentious.
Why did I write that?
I don't know! Can you ask an easier question?

Self taught myself Maya a while back, forgot most of the stuff now anyway.

Max reminds me of Multimedia at Uni and why I should have done it instead of my current degree.
