For our users using older Maya and consider a new Maya version we have some good news:
Maya Complete and Maya Unlimited is the same software today combined. Also included is Maya Composite (former Autodesk Toxik) and Maya 3D tracker (former Autodesk Matchmover) and even more power has been included since this merge for all kind of 3D-production.
The Power of Maya
• Unbeatable Value
Maya provides customers with a full featured 3D modeling, animation, effects and rendering feature set in addition to advanced matchmoving capabilities and high dynamic range compositing in a single affordable offering.
• Proven Solution
Maya has been a 3D tool of choice for companies producing the top film, games, and television content throughout the world for the last decade.
Maya helps maximize productivity with optimized workflows for everyday tasks, opportunities for collaborative, parallel workflows and re-use of assets, and automation through scripting for repetitive tasks.
Through a combination of multi-threading, algorithmic tuning, sophisticated memory management, and tools for segmenting scenes, Maya is engineered to help elegantly handle today’s increasingly complex data sets without slowing down the creative process.
Maya includes the Autodesk FBX technology supporting the exchange of 3D data with numerous professional applications, allowing certain assets created outside of Maya to be re-used.
Built from the ground-up with its own embedded scripting language, Maya Embedded Language (MEL), Maya also offers Python scripting, and an extensive, well-documented C++ application programming interface (API). In addition, a software development kit (SDK) is available to help assist studios with pipeline integration.
• Platform Choice
Whether an artist uses Windows, Mac, or Linux operating systems, Maya runs on these platforms. Also with 64-bit executables for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.
