News : What Could You Do With 90 Days of Maya and 3ds Max?

(December 14, 2012) Autodesk recently kicked off a 90-day project license of Autodesk Maya and Autodesk 3ds Max 3D animation software. Why does this matter? Freelance artists and boutique creative shops now have greater flexibility to create high-end professional work for short-term projects using Maya or 3ds Max at a significant cost savings.

Chris Bonura, a professional artist who worked on such films as Thor and The Avengers, shared his thoughts:. “I use Maya almost every day at work, and a handful of times throughout the year. I would love to have it at home but can’t justify buying the whole package to use a few times. A term license is a great solution for artists in a similar situation; it’s invaluable to have at your disposal.”

Eclipse VFX CG Supervisor/Creative Director Sam Khorshid added, “The 3ds Max 90-day project license is a huge boon for smaller boutique studios. The number of artists could jump from two or three up to 10 or 15 for a period of only a few weeks pending the project, so the short-term license can offer huge savings and bring down the overall cost of the VFX work. Those types of savings can go directly to the artist!"

Based on a recent job, veteran artist Mike Terpstra remarked: “One job required me to quickly conceptualize 3D environments for a client. I wanted to use Maya, but couldn’t rationalize buying a license. The client was local, so I worked at their studio with their Maya license,” he said. “If I had been able to license Maya for two months, I would have gained over two hours per day of work time, saved money in commuting costs, and been able to work in a more controlled environment. A reasonably priced monthly licensing model for Maya is awesome for me in today’s economy.”

Available in the U.S. and Canada for $199 US MSRP and Australia/New Zealand for $300 AUD until March 31, 2013, the fixed-term* licenses can be used for commercial purposes and cannot be renewed or upgraded. Licenses are limited to one license per customer per product. More information is available in the Autodesk eStore:
