Comprehensive 3D animation software
Maya is 3D computer animation software with powerful modelling, rendering, simulation, texturing and animation tools for vfx artists, modellers and animators. Maya helps artists tell their story with one fast, creative toolset.
This release includes major workflow upgrades with new tools like the Time Editor, which is a comprehensive tool for creating and editing clip-based non-linear animation. Similarly, our new Render Setup system simplifies the management of complex scenes with shot-based overrides and templates. In addition, grooming all types of hair and fur in XGen is easier and faster using new Interactive Groom Splines, which includes a set of intuitive brush-based tools (used in the image above). Finally, the new Content Browser, and new Workspaces capabilities let you personalize Maya.
And, don’t miss our new Motion Graphics features, including the 3D Type Tool, the SVG Tool, and the MASH Procedural Effects Toolkit to create versatile motion design animations.
Note: Maya 2017 includes all the updates from previous extension releases.
