The Maya team is happy to introduce our latest release, Maya 2019. This release has a lot of great updates in it, and almost everything is based directly on user feedback.
We want to give a huge shout out and thank you to our beta community. Without your help this would have been a very different release.
If you want to be involved and have a say in the next release, join our User Ideas forum for Maya. You can submit your ideas, upvote other submissions, and discuss with our product team.
Here are the highlights:
· Fast animation – Cached Playback gives animators serious speed improvements in the playback of animation in the viewport. You’re going to have more fun animating and waste a lot less time waiting for Playblasts.
· A beautiful working environment – With Arnold updates in Viewport 2.0, artists get to work on content that looks beautiful and, if you’re rendering with Arnold, is much closer, visually, to the final render. Less guess work and preview renders!
· Faster Maya – Maya 2019 incorporates a lot of updates to performance from a huge variety of areas and based on lots of user feedback. We think almost every artist working in Maya is going to notice a big different in their day-to-day work.
