of course maya is a complicated one coz it is used for a high end animation which is mostly written in mel script where as a3d is used mostly for gaming and architecture.max and maya both have the same importance we can produce the same outputs in both the softwares.but maya is more flexible for modeling

Did you ever plan your future before you start to lean the software?you know the software is just a tool for your career.I think you should make sure your favorite field and self-evaluate your ability.for an example,if you are good at program,maybe you can pay more attention on the script,and more proud of your modeling ability,just be the expert one at modeling field. In general,MAYA is more powerful and difficult than 3DS MAX,but it's hard to master any of those two software well.

I would say 3ds max is easier to learn. I learned 3ds max in no time by myself. With maya I bought the 3ds max fundamentals cd but Im still not as comfortable as I am with 3ds max. I would say 3ds max easier, faster, and more fun to learn.
