Professional 3D modeling and animation tool.

What is Maya for Mac

Maya is an award-winning software and powerful, integrated 3D modeling, animation, visual effects, and rendering solution. Because Maya is based on an open architecture, all your work can be scripted or programmed using a well-documented and comprehensive API (application programming interface), or one of two embedded scripting languages, the Maya Embedded Language (MEL) or Python. This level of openness, combined with an industry-leading suite of 3D visual effects, computer graphics, and character animation tools, enables you to realize your creative vision for your film, television, game development, and design projects.

Prove you're not an idiot and download Blender 3D FOR FREE instead. Every major studio is in transition to move from this bloated disaster to Blender 3D. Pixar is almost done with their internal migration plan. Investing in Maya is investing in being homeless.

IMO Maya is the least workable 3D creator of all apps. Lightwave is for example way ahead of both features and GUI. Maya is way to expensive too. Not recommended

Maya is not easy to learn - that's why Cinema 4D appeals to other people. It is a lot like Nuke vs. After Effects: completely different workflows (nodal vs. layered) but there is no way you can do the same thing in both applications, Maya is just way more advanced and the learning curve is steeper. I've been a Maya user since version 3 and version 2012 is a great release: the Qt port means it's 64-bit for OS X but it's faster than 2011, which was sluggish to use. The rigging tools are unmatched and the interactive bind tools in 2012 finally relieve you from painting skin weights manually. But Maya is so large (it's literally 10X the size of Photoshop) that covering every great feature would be impossible. My complaints are restricted to mental ray, which is a beleaguered mess in Maya and isn't well supported like it is in Softimage or Max. This is Autodesk's fault - not mental images'. So I use V-Ray and Maxwell for my work and I don't have any complaints. If you're looking to do serious high-end character animation or want a program that has real modelling tools on top of animation tools, Maya is the best choice.

How can anyone take this seriously when 64bit support for OSX is missing? Our design studio has been holding off buying Maya2010 specifically because we wanted 64bit support...... We are binning our seats of Maya2008 and switching to Cinema4D and VrayforC4d....
