What does Autodesk do well? Autodesk is a great company for their 3D modeling/animation programs. I first started using Autodesk Maya about 10 years ago in college and it is amazing how great the program is.
What does Autodesk not do well? This isn't a negative, but it is not a program for newbies to just jump into. You definitely need some teaching or tutorials to get you started.
What do you wish you had known about Autodesk before using? I wish I had done more tutorials initially before striking out on my own. I could've learned a lot more earlier.
Have you used a competitor to Autodesk? If so, how does it compare? I've used some free options and they are nowhere near as good as Autodesk products.
