F key… no one showed me that for months back in school.

Good video. I was actually thinking recently to try and pick up Maya as it still seems a lot of jobs require knowledge of it. Except the monthly free is so high it’s a deal breaker. Even if just to learn it and not use for any commercial work (that’s what Blender is for) then I wonder if there’s a way to learn Maya non commercially.
