Hello /3/, 3DCG beginner here.

I'm trying to get into Maya after a few months into ZBrush. I've torrented Maya LT 2016 but it ran like crap. Started, and it took around 15 seconds to be interactable (max/minimizing window, clicking buttons), etc. And when it does get responsive, a click on anything takes another minute to yield any results. Also, double-clicking on the polygon button opens up the window for settings, but clicking create does nothing and it gets stuck like that until I ended the program through Task Manager. Any idea why this happens? Does anyone in /3/ have a suggestion on what I should do? Perhaps a better torrent that works?

Here are my specs:

Intel Core i7-6700HQ 2.60GHz
8GB DDR4 RAM
NVIDIA GTX960M

And the torrent used is: https://thepiratebay.org/torrent/11760603/Autodesk_Maya_LT_2016_[64-Bit]-[FirstUploads]

I'm still learning, please don't deny me. Thanks a lot, /3/.

Don't bother with any Autodesk LT products.
>>
>>539226
What should I torrent, then? For the purpose of learning?
>>
>>539231

The actual Maya.

And download it from the actual website of Autodesk. The student version has no limits or watermarks.
>>
>>539232
stop lying to OP. (as funny as it is)

The student version does have watermarks and there is a 4 year limit
>>
>>539231
Torrent the full Maya. No LT or student edition. Get extended if you want.
>>
Get modo
>>
>>539240
Wait, what? Are there any identifying marks with the student version of Inventor?
>>
>>539279
Is modo any better than ZBrush? I aim to learn them all, and Maya just happens to be next in the list.
>>
>>539240

A watermark that you can edit out with any notepad.
>>
>>539292
With questions like that you might as well give up now pal, not gonna make it
>>
>>539240
Stop talking out of your ass.

There are no watermarks. The only difference is a small line of text attached to the file that signifies it was created on a student version.
The 4 year limit is also not enforced in any way. The program will continue to function normally after 4 years.

I understand that this is /3/, and people love to act like they know what they're doing here, but you're just stupid.
>>
>>539303

Right, so I should go for the Student version. I can just put any baloney enroll/graduate date, right?

Thanks a bunch, anon.
>>
>>539322
Yea, they won't check
>>
>>539351
This. They WANT you to learn their software, trust me. As long as you're not professional and/or making significant money.
>>
>>539355
I was always curious how they would know if someone used their student software professionally, especially since they don't check.
>>
Hey guys, OP here. Finally finished downloading Maya from the Student section, but I still have the same problems? Any ideas? Thanks.
>>
>>539486
Is your computer a toaster?
>>
>>539486
So the original uncracked Autodesk Student version of Maya is still crawling like a snail and gets stuck?
I have an old Lenovo Laptop with an I5 2.6GHz and 4Gig Ram and Maya 2016 runs fine.
Your hardware shouldn't be a problem.
Maya should run without problems.

There is something wrong with your system...

Do you have a partition with a fresh installed Windows to try?
>>
>>539510
I'm not sure about that... Could it be that I am running Win10? I don't have a partition with a fresh install of Windows, and I don't feel all that good about completely wiping my HDD just to try it. But I DO have a weaker laptop that I've just completely wiped, running Win8. I'm going to try installing the cracked copy on that to see. Could be it's because of the OS, I dunno. Anyways, thanks again.

Also, I'm downloading the 2017 version of Maya into this laptop to see if there's any difference.

>>539508
As stated in >>539221, not really that great but not a toaster either, thank you for asking.
>>
>>539510
>>539515

Anon, I installed the cracked copy on the laptop running Win8 and it ran nicely. It's probably the OS; Win10 has a reputation of shitting itself when it comes to programs from days past.

Question is, how do I fix my problem on the computer running Win10?
>>
>>539515
Yea, it's definitely not your PC. Should run fine on that. Are all the drivers installed and up to date?
>>
>>539527
All drivers, especially the GPU's are updated.
>>
>>539528
Try Maya 2016 or 2015.
>>
>>539568
>>539527

I got it, anon. Turns out it's conflicting with one of the audio drivers in this laptop; I had to turn it off before launching Maya. Man, I couldn't fathom why it would affect Maya, but at least for now it's solved. Running Maya 2016, btw.

Thanks for all the help, anon. Appreciate it.
>>
>>539570
That's strange as fuck, but that's Autodesk for you. Glad you figured it out, have fun!
>>
>>539570
Can you give us the name of that audio driver?
>>
>>539595
Nahimic

Not even an audio driver, something like an enhancer
