“Highly priced, but totally worth it"

When you learn to work on Maya, you will be able to work on any 3D animation software. Animation, live integration, and modelling are just some of the features it offers. That too in an easy to learn format. Plus, you can integrate it with Autodesk software like mudbox. What I don’t like much about this software is its Xgen plugin. For the high price that you pay for it, this plugin could have been better. What I would suggest to new users is that you focus on one program at a time within this software. That will help greatly.
