For those of you interested in computer graphics and 3D modelling, you can now download a free version of Alias’ Maya 6 software (Personal Learning Edition). It’s fully functional, but will include a watermark on any image generated, For $24.99 you can also purchase their Maya Beginner’s Guide Bundle, which includes the Personal Learning Edition on CDROM as well as a training DVD. I had purchased their beginner’s bundle for version 5 and it was well worth the money.
I just hope that the watermark in version 6 is not as intrusive as it was in version 5. It made viewing models difficult.
