today announced that it’s launching a new “Completely Unlimited” promotion which will run throughout March. Under the terms of the offer, anyone acquiring a license for Maya Complete, the company’s 3D graphics and animation package, will instead receive Maya Unlimited for the same price. Normally Maya Complete costs US$7,500, and Maya Unlimited runs for $16,000, so there’s a significant cost savings.
Maya Unlimited features functionality not found in the Complete package, including Maya Fur, Maya Live, Maya Cloth, subdivision surfaces and other advanced modeling functionality.
Annual Full Maintenance packages for Maya Unlimited licenses acquired through this promotion can also be purchased as the cost of Maya Complete Full Maintenance agreements, according to Alias|Wavefront. Normally, the cost of a Maya Unlimited Full Maintenance package is $3,200, and the cost of a Maya Complete Full Maintenance package is $1,500. The cost of the maintenance packages includes both support and any upgrades that occur within the maintenance period.
The “Completely Unlimited” promotion begins on Friday March 1, 2002, at 3:00 PM ET and runs through Friday, March 29, 2002, at 8:00 PM ET.
What’s more, anyone who’s made a purchase of Maya Complete after December 28th, 2001 but before the beginning of the promotion can get the free upgrade to Maya Unlimited, as long they purchase or have purchased a maintenance package for the applicable license.
