Max 2011 vs Max 2012
show user profile  herfst1
The title says it all. Loads of people are now on Max 2012 and I was wondering whether there are any SIGNIFICANT benefits in the new iteration. Yes, I can watch the promo videos (and I have) but I didn't see anything that made me want to upgrade yet. Though I understand there's an improvement to UVW unwrapping?

Unwrapping is way better, once you've patched and hotfixed it all to work like it was meant to. I love the new tools, finally starting to use external apps less and less for that. Can't even remember what was in that release? Nitrous? And no more reactor. I'm sure they added more stuff but I can't say it's anything I use.

Either way, if you can wait a month or two 2013 should be on its way, so I'd hold out on upgrading until you see what that has to offer ;)

i guess it depends on what you do mostly, if you spend lots of time rigging organics and animating it you're going to hate 2012 since they pretty much killed the viewport performance there. After making a big fuss about it in ad forums around the launch of 2012 last year, an ad rep claimed this had not come to their attention during beta which to me sounds insane since how can they not test a function that claims 50% of the UI... Anyway it just seems to me their current development efforts are more focused around making it seem like a progressive and awesome 3d suit rather then actually making it so.

Thanks for the responses. That clears it up a lot... well, not really :) I love the idea of better uvwing but I love animating. On the fence... Guess I'm going to wait for 2013.
