Autodesk Maya 2016

Autodesk® Maya® 2016 software delivers new features, performance improvements, and artist-friendly tools that greatly enhance the entire Maya experience. In addition to an all-new look and feel that includes reorganized menus that better match artist workflows, Maya is now leveraging more resources (cores) in the computer to accelerate animation performance, increasing the speed of both playback and manipulation of character rigs. A new native sculpting toolset brings improved brush based modeling tools to Maya, allowing modelers to quickly modify forms and shapes. Additionally, artists can achieve even more realistic VFX results using Bifrost with the addition of foam, surface tension, viscosity, and adaptive aerodynamics.
