Autodesk has recently announce the new line of Media and Entrainment packages with 2013 updates to Autodesk Maya 2013, Autodesk 3ds MAX 2013, Autodesk Softimage 2013, Autodesk MotionBuilder 2013, Autodesk MudBox 2013, and Autodesk Flame 2013 in a media event that set the focus on Autodesk’s larger picture roadmap to cloud technologies as well as smaller and more portable tools to enhance desktop tools which would be aimed to liberate some workflows from desktop computers.


Here is a brief rundown of the Maya 2013 features:

Autodesk Maya 2013 features include:

Enhancements to workflow with:
  • Viewport 2.0 Enhancements:
    Evaluate your work in a higher fidelity interactive environment in order to make better creative decisions.
  • New Node Editor:
     Create, edit, and debug node networks more easily with the new Node Editor.
  • File Referencing Workflow Enhancements: Segment your scenes more easily, to work in parallel and better manage complexity, thanks to targeted improvements to both the user interface and the underlying architecture for file referencing.
  • Heat Map Skinning:
    Enjoy a more accurate initial binding of geometry to skeletons, thanks to a new Heat Map Skinning method that is better able to assign skin to the intended bone as opposed to an adjacent but unrelated one and requires less manual refinement.
New Features in Dynamics: (Click here for Videos and more features about Dynamics in maya 2013)
