So a lot of editing SFX is extremely hard. It takes a lot of hard work and practice. Training yourself on programs like Maya are all but impossible. I've been working out it a few hours a day and really wish that I had someone to train me. But where do I go? For After Effects I took a class. Half way through the class I had figured out more about the program on http://www.videocopilot.net/ than I did in class. Is there a website that trains you on Maya the same way?
I mean I've found a few videos that help you with bits of it. I mean if it wasn't for the videos I wouldn't have even figured out how to move around the page. For the life of me I can't figure out why everything is so complicated on that program. I figured if I can just learn how to use the program than I could do almost anything on film. Maybe the only thing I can do is keep working at it day in and day out.
