Autodesk Maya 2017 is one of the most powerful 3D applications on the market that has been put to prove its incredible amount of features in hundreds of Hollywood films. Many studios worldwide count on Maya as THE modeling and animation package. This contrasts with the complexity of the software, that makes it difficult for beginners or 3D-professionals, who are skilled in the use of other 3D-software, to find a real entry. We help you to learn and understand Autodesk Maya 2017 and its underlying 3D-thinking from the bottom.
