Building on its foundation at the core of many modern production pipelines, Maya 2020  software offers next-generation display technology, accelerated modeling workflows, robust new systems for handling complex data, and inspiring new creative toolsets to help content creators stay ahead of their competition.

With an expanded, integrated modeling feature set that helps increase modeling efficiency; an intuitive new Grease Pencil for blocking out and marking up animation; and innovative new Paint Effects surface and volume attributes, Maya 2020 helps both improve productivity and put creativity back at the artists' fingertips. Moreover, the Maya 2020 DirectX Shader, together with enhancements to Viewport 2.0, enable artists to work in a high- quality real-time environment that closely matches final output. And, with the Scene Assembly tools, File Path Editor, and URI support that make building and managing large and complex worlds easier, Maya 2020 helps artists, TDs, and developers create the stunning content they need to exceed the expectations of today's sophisticated audiences.


Cached Playback
Cached Playback lets you see changes made to your animation without the need to create a playblast. It appears as a blue stripe running along the bottom of the Time Slider. Previously, each time you modified a scene, Maya would need to update and redraw. To see your edits, you often had to Playblast. Depending on the size of the scene and changes made, these updates were time-consuming. Now, your scene is automatically cached as you work and Maya only recomputes the part of the animation that's changed, rather than redrawing the whole scene.

Render Setup
A new preference has been added that allows you to control whether lights are automatically included in each render layer by default. A new preference has been added that allows you to control whether new objects created while in an active render layer should be saved to an untitled collection.
UV editor workflow, look, and feel
The UV Editor interface has been overhauled, and includes a new UV Toolkit with better tools and functionality.
Clump modifier for interactive grooming
Generate realistic clumping effects in hair and fur for more natural-looking hair.
After Effects live link
Create a live link between Maya and Adobe After Effects to make real-time changes and view scenes simultaneously.
Additional MASH nodes
The MASH toolset gives you new nodes (curve, signal, world, placer, and more), as well as updates to existing nodes.
Motion Graphics
  • 3D Type - Create branding, flying logos, title sequences, and other projects that require text.
  • Motion Graphics toolset - Quickly create complex procedural effects and animations with instanced objects.
3D Animation
  • Parallel rig evaluation - New system speeds rig playback and manipulation.
  • Geodesic voxel binding - Produce high-quality, production-ready bound characters in less time.
  • General animation tools - Toolset for keyframe, procedural, and scripted animation.

Industry standard for animation

Pretty much the industry standard for animation. The software is great but the support and purchasing process I had through Novedge was stellar! I would highly recommend Maya for those looking to get into the 3D animation or VFX industry. It isn't the only tool to use but definitely a widely used one.

fast and trustworthy at a good price

this is my first Autodesk Maya subscription renewal with Novedge. I was using a local Autodesk authorized reseller, and decided to give Novedge a try to save a few bucks.

to my surprise, everything went very smooth and fast. I called first to confirm everything...sales staff was very kind, helpful, and upfront. i was then emailed a link to an invoice that was created for me so i could pay through Novedge. I received a payment confirmation from Novedge right away, and within a few days i got an email from Autodesk confirming my subscription renewal, and then a few days later an email from Autodesk confirming my renewal was successful. i definitely plan on shopping with Novedge in the future. They were fast and trustworthy.

The only way to go!

We use Maya for all of our 3D and animation needs in Video Game Development, there is no comparison! Maya can easily be extended to make your own tools enabling you to tweak your pipeline to it's fullest potential.

Also, make sure you buy from NOVEDGE! They had the best prices (seriously, they are 100's less than Autodesk even), and Scott was a huge help in figuring out my licensing situation. Thumbs up!

Maya 2012 is top notch

Going from Maya 2010 to Maya 2012 was the best upgrade decision I've made all year long!
