Maya by Autodesk is one of the main professional computer graphics software packages in the CG industry today. The program first saw the light of day in 1998 and remains a stalwart tool to this day.

The pedigree of the software cannot be denied. Maya has been used to provide visuals in some of the most iconic films in history. Including The Matrix and Avatar. Two films that changed the face of VFX forever and ushered in 21st century visual effects. Today Maya is used industry-wide in both film and television, with big-budget TV series such as Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead making liberal use of the software.

Maya is known for its advanced effects. These include realistic fluid, fur, hair and cloth simulation. Thanks to its specific use in film and television Maya also has tools that detect camera tracking and motion and composites onto film with relative ease.

SYSTEM RECOMMENDATIONS:
While Maya will of course eat up as much computational power as you are willing to throw at it, not every Maya workstation needs to be a high-end behemoth. It all depends on which parts of the CG workflow a given workstation is intended for.

Maya for Modeling and Animation only
The bulk of the CG workflow is actually done with only basic wire frames and low-quality placeholder textures and models. These computers only have to deal with wire frames, scene-setting exercises or interactive previews and editing that do not have any fancy rendering in real time. You may need many of these and only a few dedicated high-end rendering machines, depending on the way your team is structured. The most effective way to set up machines meant for these tasks is to have a good mid-range professional GPU and the fastest single-socket solution you can get.

CPU & GPU Modeling, Animation and Rendering
These days the massively parallel power of GPUs are being harnessed to enable you to have a tiny render farm right on your desk. These systems feature multiple GPUs to accelerate certain types of rendering tasks significantly.

Operating systems supported by Maya:
Microsoft Windows 10 Professional
