I’m super happy that I’m studying at Vancouver Film School. One Month has passed and we’ve been busy with modeling a castle and animating a bouncing ball!!! Everything is so professional here. I really love coming to class every day learning new stuff. Animation is super FUN. The only thing that I still don’t have any answer for is preferring Maya to Max. some people are completely new to 3D software here but since I have experience working with Max for a couple of years it’s easier for me to work with Maya. Wait a minute, did I say It’s easy? No, No It is not easy at all. I get confused with shortcuts. some keys have absolutely different function in Maya. For example C is for changing the cameras in Max but it’s for snapping to curves in Maya and lots of other differences. I wonder why Autodesk doesn’t try to make them as similar as possible.
Bouncing ball is the first assignment in every animation school. Steve Taylor says that we can see the bouncing ball in every piece of animation. No matter ehat the animation is bouncing ball is always involved.
