Autodesk Maya as it is officially known, has many applications in the field of 3D animation.  Seeing is believing and Maya Training offers quality which few can replicate. For being a top tier animation expert, 3D animators need to be conversant with this animation software. Aspiring 3D animators need to learn Maya if they want to create spell binding products.

Maya combines animation with a professional look. Since the latter part of 2002, realistic field simulators have been included within the software with separate cloth simulation being there for previous versions. The Maya Nucleus now comprises nCloth and nParticle. Both offer control for flowing scene objects and special effects to create a realistic look and atmospheric effects that are far from airy.

Maya 2010 also included the Composite earlier sold as an Autodesk film composition software known as Toxik. As Maya evolved over the years, many more features were added. MatchMover is also part of Maya 2010 which provides enabling support for positing of CGI rendering with respect to motion data from film sequencing.

Since its inception in 2009, the Camera Sequencer has received much impetus as one can layout multiple camera shots and  attain this via a single animation piece much like an enlightened being who can see multiple visions through the prism of universal knowledge! Maya has advanced features as well such as motion tracking tools.

This permits the accomplishment of advanced projects in one go. Maya is suited to the conflicting demands of the film industry as well as video game designing. To learn Maya is to acquire important skills which will help you to stay efficient and be creative.. Animators from different fields would do well to undergo Maya training. Maya is the top notch software when it comes to animation.

History Lesson:
Maya is a 3D computer animation software developed originally by Alias Systems Corporation. This is previously known as Alias Wavefront. This animation software is currently owned and developed by a company called Autodesk Inc which acquired and launched it gain.


Maya is used to create everything from visual effects to animated films, video games and television series. Whether you are interested in 3D for game or visuals development, Maya training will stand you in good stead

The key features of Maya are 3D modeling, 3D animation, 3D rendering and imaging as well as dynamics and effects.

Prerequisites for Maya Animation Software:
Software details are as follows:

There is language support for English, Japanese and Simple Chinese.  Maya was launched in February 1998 and it is compatible with Linux, OS X and Windows. Platform required for this animation software is iA32, x64. You can download the software at this Maya link.


The official website can be accessed at Maya.
Hardware requirements are the following:

Video card of qualified hardware accelerated OpenGL graphics cards and 10 GB hard drive are required. Processor should be of Intel Pentium 4 or Higher, AMD Athlon 64, Opteron and Phnom processor. Memory should be around 2 to 4 GB for a 64 bit OS. Hard Drive requirements are around 10 GB while optical drive is DVD ROM and multiple types of internet browsers can be used with this software ranging from IE to Safari, Chrome and Firefox.


Maya Animation: A Perfect Reality
Imagination travels faster than light or sound. There are no limits to human imagination and this is the amazing potential that Maya training taps. Using this 3D animation, time and space can be transcended because human imagination gets the clay to mould the perfect sculpture. 3D characters, animations and scenes ideal for movie, TV and game programs is the result. Despite a steep learning curve, Maya training offers plenty of benefits

Modeling Features: Maya supports all 4 methods in the model building universe including polygon,sculpting, subdivision and NURBS. Each of the methods has its own pluses and minuses. Selecting methodology on the basis of needs for each individual creation will be the best choice.

If you are a novice, polygon modelling can be started with a wide range of primitives that can be manipulated to get the desired format. Maya is equipped with small as well as large modelling tools and the new Scene Assembly tools in Maya can enable individuals to use assets for production with ease and efficiency. Swapping between representations helps to create complex worlds in intricate ways.

 Maya: No Illusions, Only Perfection
Maya derives from the Hindu word for “illusion” and if you like spinning a web of fanciful images, Maya training is just the software you need to have in your creative tool kit. 3D meshes can only be detailed and intricate with realistic color and texture, if you are looking for lifelike image or video footage. Maya training has the texturing feature and raw tools to create mass and realistic images second to none.


Textures can be created externally from Maya or generated with a paint tool within the application. Result is image file that folds like a sheet. Actual texturing can be attained through a bump map. Much like the UV texture maps known for creating and coloring models. Topography on the surface of the model is produced by the bump map which textures light and dark spots.

In the material world, Maya training has tangible benefits. Other 3D animation software cannot compete with the simulations and special effects Maya can attain. Maya provides for rigid as well as soft body dynamics and a baked lighting feature to produce excessively well illuminated models in the absence of costly light calculations. Maya also supports global illumination and photorealism creating perfection, and not just an illusion of it.

 Animation Features that Delight
3D animation software in Maya is complex and there is support for forward as well as inverse kinematics. Both kinetic motions combine to create realistic patterns of motion which can be used for shifting between poses and animating facial muscles.


Maya is literally tridimensional when it comes to animation supporting keyframe, procedural and scripted animations. Separate layers can be animated, animations can be dubbed with many audio tracks and animations can be rendered in 3D with ease. Motion capture data can be applied t character models and splice into current footage with the motion tracking feature.

This 3D animation software is perfect when it comes to playing hard ball and creating visuals designed to please the eyes and excite the senses.  Timelines can be slowed down or even eliminated with time warping features and motion
