It is perhaps the most comprehensive 3D software available. Used in Lucas Studios for such films as Episode I and other films including The Mask. Also, used by top forensic teams to build on the skull remains of unidentified persons. Be prepared to shell-out +$2000.00 for the complete edition of Maya. (It's on the top of my wish list).
This is where you want to use Dual Xenons and a quality CRT.
Well aliaswavefront had a deal going were u could download a personnal learning edition of Maya for free does everything the $2000.00+ for the complete edition would do but u could not import the files from the free version in to retail version and the other as well. If they still have the free personnal learning version up for download I hope u got a fast connection cause I think it would like 5+ hours on a 56k modem
