Which industry?

"The industry" doesn't help much.

'The Industry' is 'The Industry'!

If you don't know what 'The Industry' is you aren't cool any more.

I thought you were cool Nik.....

I left "The Industry" to work for a secretive, shadowy government agency. It's well cool, we've got black budgets and laser pistols. Pew pew pew. ;)

It's obvious that he's talking about the "Standard Industry".

Here's a bunch of standard bearers.

There was an email sent to me long a go with TurboSquids CheckMate's modeling standards:

There are other useful links that will explain what the Ngons are and how do deal with different mesh problems. I think the "Clean Geometry" topic should help you with your work.

the standard is whatever the client requests, too much private proprietary tech and too fast evolving field for there to be a global standard

That's an extremely general question. And there are quite significant differences in game V film pipelines... which one do you need to know about?

Also... Maya? Sure there are Maya users here, but this is a 3ds Max forum... just an FYI.

In my opinion: Max is more suitable for modeling. And maya is probably more suited for animation.

In my opinion starting on an internet forum for your dissertation research won't get you very far.

In my opinion, having so broad and vague a subject for a dissertation is asking for trouble.
