Autodesk Maya 2018 ships
[permalink] 27.07.2017

Autodesk Maya 2018 video animation worgflow Autodesk Maya 2018 has arrived. The new version comes with enhanced workflows across the board, including enhanced modeling tools with Topological Symmetry support, single top-level symmetry control, and vector displacement map stamps. An improved shape authoring workflow offers a smoother experience, including the ability to perform pose-space deformation on rigged characters. New tools for working with UVs allow artists to stack similar UV shells, automatically redistribute UVs for even spacing, and constrain the movement of UVs along edges. Animators will benefit from updates to the recently added Time Editor and overhauled, faster-to-use Graph Editor. With 64-bit time precision, Maya 2018 adds timecode improvements with new non-integer framerates, NTSC drop and non-drop formats, allowing users to use standard capture formats without having to convert data. For the first time, rigid-body dynamics can be combined with procedural instancing, through simple and fast-to-manage dynamic properties and constraints over large numbers of instances. With just a few clicks, users can create complex arrangements of animated instances that can act dynamically, collide with each other, be bounced around by dynamic forces, and be constrained. Maya 2018 also welcomes Arnold 5 to the family with all the full features as its built-in renderer, introducing better samplers, improved speed, and simplified workflows. Arnold 5 also comes with new, more physically-accurate shaders, such as a standard surface shader, a standard hair shader, and a volume shader. Maya 2018 also includes hundreds of bug fixes to deliver a better overall experience. [source]
