Hello I just graduated from college with my Minor in Animation and was seeking some advise from people in the "know" Currently I am seeking to obtain my Autodesk professional certs levels 1-4. Seeing how these are far cheaper than spending an additional 50-90k on grad school's. My basic question is this, given how processor intensive Maya and other 3d programs are would capped out top of the line Imac or Macbook pro work for the certifications? I would prefer not to buy a mac pro for a few more years if possible. Additionally I have been told that these certs are recognized industry wide is this true? and if so do you get the same experence as I would had I gone to grad school? sorry for posting such questions on this forum but it is difficult to find very unbaised response any help would be great thanks.
