 Post subject: Looking for a student version of 3ds max 2010 or 2011

My major is Game art and Design and one of the tools we are learning to use is 3ds max 2010. I will be using that program for my third quarter in a row this summer but I am wondering if the company offers a student version similar to how adobe offers student versions of their software.

Ive tried looking at a few sites already such as autodesk, newegg and amazon and cant seem to find it. I did find a site called academic-software.com that offers a student version for $99 but am not sure if its a ligit site or not. So basicly I am wondering if that particular site is ligit and if not, if there is a student store somewhere on the autodesk site I missed (or a site that is ligit that does sell student versions). Any help would be great.

Legit. And no, it probably is not. Student versions are not that cheap.

If you want to find a legitimate reseller in your area, Autodesk lists them on their site here

If you buy one of their 3ds courses you can get the student version of autodesk for $170 (1 year license). I think the level 1 course on 3ds is $225. So for about $395 you could get it there. Not sure if that will work for you or not.

The 3DSMax courses optionally includes a fully functional copy of Autodesk's 3ds Max 2010, complete with a 1 year student license, Autodesk Maya, Autodesk MotionBuilder, Autodesk Mudbox, Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and Autodesk Softimage.

Autodesk does do free student software.

I've heard that if you try and upload something from a student package into a professional package it will die. I haven't seen this myself, but have heard of it, don't know if it's fact or not.

I'm not sure how much money you are looking to spend, but take a look at www.journeyed.com The are a legit website for students and teachers. I've used them a few times now for example I purchased Creative Suite 5 Design Premium for just about $450 bucks.

I'm seeing Autodesk Education Suite for Entertainment Creation 2011
Includes full versions of the following software solutions:

•Autodesk® 3ds Max® 2011 software

•Autodesk® Maya 2011 software

•Autodesk® Softimage® 2011 software

for $349.98

Those packages would typically be $4800 to purchase.
