By the way, 3dmax and maya now belong to the same company.

Game Art Designer Game Engine

What is a game engine? The game engine is just like the engine of a car. The plot, level, art, music, operation and other contents experienced by the player are controlled by the engine. Simply put, the engine is "the main program for controlling all game functions". It is the result of the programmer's work, but the users are usually art and planning. If a game's engine is developed, the game's procedural work will be at least half done. Of course, many game companies think that it is too much trouble to develop an engine independently, so buy the engine of another company directly and save yourself! The development of a 3D game engine is time-consuming and labor-intensive. It wo nt take three or four years to get started. After you write the engine and start to develop the game daylily, it's cold, the player's needs have changed, and the mainstream game types have also changed. The most successful selling engine is the American EPIC company (the developer of the War Machine). Its game engine is called "Unreal Engine", and countless game companies around the world have purchased it.
To put it bluntly, the game engine is also a kind of software, but maya or 3dmax can have many uses, and the engine is software specifically used to make games.
