Maya 2015 Up Close & Personal - Live Event: Culver City, Oct 21.

Autodesk Maya 2015 Event

Come see Autodesk Maya product specialist Marcel de Jong show off some of the latest and greatest features of Maya 2015 including Bifrost and Xgen.

Bifrost - Naiad’s photorealistic liquid simulation technology is back, as the basis for the all-new Bifrost. Fully integrated in Maya 2015, Bifrost allows you to preview simulations interactively in Viewport 2.0, providing the stellar results artists have come to expect from the powerful Naiad technology.

XGen - Create hair, fur and feathers or large vegetative landscapes with access to the same tools as the pros at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. No need to slow down your computer by overloading the memory – XGen creates the geometry procedurally at render time.

Color Management - Enjoy consistent color-safe handling of imagery across The Foundry's NUKE software, Photoshop, Autodesk Creative Finishing solutions, and certain other applications. Plus, take advantage of support for EXR floating-point data and for the Autodesk Color Management component (SynColor), the OpenColorIO open source project, and the Academy Color Encoding System (ACES).

You're not going to be in a room with anyone who knows more about Maya than Marcel. He really knows his stuff and this is the perfect place to learn how you can use Maya 2015 to it's fullest, and ask those burning questions you've always wanted answered.

Plus, with the understanding that small things can make a big difference, Maya 2015 addresses at least 30 workflow obstacles identified as high priority by customers. Come find out what those fixes are and see if they can help you!

Here's what he'll be covering:

  • Maya 2015 and Maya 2015 Extension
  • Xgen
  • Bifrost
  • Recap
  • 3D printing
  • Sketchbook
  • FBXreview
  • Plus more.

Motion Media will be providing food and drink for the event from 7-7:30 or so, and then Marcel will show the goods after that. Be sure and show up on time so you don't miss anything.

WEBINAR: Autodesk's New Upgrade Policy & Subscription

A lot is changing at Autodesk in the coming months and we've had many customers asking questions about how it affects them and what they need to do. We decided to put together an informative webinar outlining the changes that are coming from Autodesk and how you can benefit from them.

What's changing? Most Autodesk license upgrades from previous releases will no longer be available for purchase after January 31, 2015.

Why is it changing? To simplify Autodesk's product offering, as the majority of customers have already shown a preference for Autodesk Subscription options. This also aligns with overall industry trends for software delivery and cloud based offerings.

What you'll learn:

  • Learn about the new "no upgrades" policy
  • How Subscription can benefit you
  • What is Desktop Subscription vs. Maintenance Subscription
  • The future of Autodesk licensing & how it affects you
  • Q&A session to ask anything you want
