High-Performance Compositing: Maya Composite
Work interactively with visual media regardless of bit-depth or image size. This node-based compositor provides Maya users with a highly efficient, collaborative compositing environment for nonlinear visual effects decision-making, helping accelerate everyday CG workflows. Maya Composite is a high-performance, high dynamic range (HDR) system with tools for keying, tracking, color correction, rotoscoping, paint, and warping. It includes advanced filters (including motion blur and depth of field), a full 3D compositing environment, and support for stereoscopic production.
Advanced Simulation Features
Access the innovative simulation tools that made Autodesk® Maya® Unlimited software famous—for less. There’s now only one version of Maya. That means Maya users gain access to the Maya Unlimited 2009 software’s innovations: the Maya Nucleus dynamic simulation framework, featuring the first two fully integrated Nucleus modules (Maya nCloth and Maya nParticles), as well as Maya Fluid Effects, Maya Hair, and Maya Fur.
Professional Camera Tracking
Extract accurate 3D camera and motion data from video and film sequences and insert CG elements seamlessly into a scene using Maya software’s new, advanced matchmoving camera tracking system. A critical tool for leading visual effects production work requiring integration of CG elements with live action, Autodesk® MatchMover™ software provides high-quality 3D camera tracking with easy-to-use automatic tracking capabilities and precision manual controls.
More Rendering Power
Use more networked computers to render your sequences faster: Maya 2010 includes 5 additional mental ray® for Maya batch rendering* nodes. Also included is the Autodesk® Backburner™** network render queue manager to help manage the rendering process for your CG pipeline. Larger facilities have the option to integrate these additional mental ray for Maya nodes into their existing render management software.
* Feature only available with network license.
** Feature only available for Microsoft® Windows® 32-bit / 64-bit and Linux® 64-bit operating systems.
