Maya for Mac OS
With this first release of Maya for Mac OS X, all of Maya Complete becomes native to the Macintosh. Features unique to this version include support for QuickTime, tear off menus in the hot box, and a fully Aqua interface.
"Maya is the largest, most technically sophisticated program to be built for Mac OS X. We couldnt have done it without Mac OS Xs support of OpenGL, the high level Carbon API, and Aquas transparent overlay windows," states Andrew Pearce, Director of Maya Technologies at Alias|Wavefront. "We are very excited to be releasing Maya as a Mac OS X application one week ahead of our scheduled ship date. We look forward to seeing how the combination of Maya and Mac OS X will enable the graphics community to grow into 3D."

Those ordering the Mac OS X version of Maya before December 31, 2001 will be entitled to receive twelve-months of maintenance, which includes product upgrades and support.
