I used to create models with Maya, so when I moved to Mudbox, it did take me a long time to get accustomed. Though I prefer to create models with Maya, the texture and painting features of Mudbox are really fabulous. Mudbox comes with a great number of wonderful features, and works perfectly. Plus, the price is truly reasonable.
It seems more and more easy to use.
Autodesk Mudbox has made a lot of improvements on carving models. When you master the basic features of it, you will find it very simple to use. However, it is not suitable for people who never draw or those professionals who have taken may traditional art courses.Besides, if you want to run this program well and smoothly on your computer, a good graphics card with 3GB RAM (minimum) is needed.
