Maya Personal Learning Edition 5 Available
Alias has released Maya Personal Learning Edition 5 for free download.
Version 5 of the Maya PLE was announced in July 2003. The PLE version of the 3d software provides a fully functional version of Maya Complete for non-commercial use. (The PLE does incorporate watermarks and uses different file formats from Maya Complete, however) The software was initially available only as part of the Learning Maya Beginner's Guide for $19.99, but is now available at no charge from the Alias site.
