show user profile  Jock
I was wondering if anyone here has any kind of experience with the Autodesk Certification for 3DMax like exactly whats invloved. I've already looked through the official stuff from autodesk but would have liked to have heard from someone whos been there and done it.

I considered it, but some of it is really basic stuff, and I didn't see how it would ever help me.

Would be cool to have though.

Only thing i thought of that may be a problem is dependant how much of it concentrates on the rendering side of things because its been years since i ever touched mental ray and to be honest i cant remember much about it.

Suppose if it came to it, i'd just need to do some tutorials to refresh my memory.

The course I am helping with is aimed at getting this for people at the end of the Masters year. I have not taken it yet, but I know my lecturer wants me to. I think if anything just to make people feel like they have achieved something tangible for their money. I am not sure what actual work benefits it might bring? I always assumed a good Portfolio was the best way to get work.

I dare say the qualification doesnt count for a great deal and a portfolio speaks 100x louder but i'm just wondering if it may be worth it just to lend a touch more credibility to the person who obtains it, like the fact they can advertise with the official autodesk logo etc.

I'm in a situation where I could get a decent grant towards some future training so having a look around to see whats out there and if its worth it.

If you can do it for free it might be something fun. But if you have to pay even a cent for it, it is not worth it.

Spend the time working on your reel instead.

In this industry, awards and qualifications are almost meaningless and can even work against you in some cases.

The only one I can think of that means anything is being an Max Master. However that is something you need to be chosen for and it is very rare and only given to those who give back a lot to the community and have huge amounts of experience.
