Re: 3D Studio Max and Maya for Ubuntu?

Maya has a native linux version but not 3D Studio Max . The main reason these softwares are not made for linux is the market share of linux users is low comparatively to Mac and Windows. For Mac there are already a lot of software which are apple proprietary. And the OS left is Windows which a lot of users uses. 3D Studio Max is strongly linked with Windows API since the ancient ages hence it has not yet been developed for Linux. You should try some Linux Alternative for 3D animation and modelling...

These windows softwares are not supported in Linux. You can use native linux softwares for 3D animation and modelling. One of such software is K-3D. K-3D is free-as-in-freedom 3D modeling and animation software. It features a plugin-oriented procedural engine for all of its content, making K-3D a very versatile and powerful package. K-3D excels at polygonal modeling, and includes basic tools for NURBS, patches, curves and animation.

Re: 3D Studio Max and Maya for Ubuntu?

If you are stuck in 3D Studio Max and Maya and you think you cannot learn a new software now, How about using wine to run Windows software? Wine will let you install and run these softwares in Linux OS, but for it to work flawlessly, you will need a 64-bit OS as it can handle more amount of memory, a high-end graphics card and a 64-bit wine on the 64-bit OS. If you can handle the heavy machine you are ready to go. If you don't want wine, you can have the heavy configuration and then install VirtualBox and install Windows in it, and don't let the windows have Internet connectivity. You can anytime share data with the Linux host...

Its better to use Windows with a heavy configuration with a proper licensed Antivirus Softwares, instead of going through so much pain. Use Blender or K-3D for best performance. It takes some time to learn a new softwrae but in the end its worth it...
