Maya (aka Alias Wavefront) is now free for non-commercial use

http://slashdot.org/articles/03/10/17/0350209.shtml?tid=127&tid=152&tid=185&tid=186

i dunno how if at all this applies to third parties developping models for IL-2, since it is being 'contributed' for free to UBI, who is then 'distributing' finished models to us as free updates to the software.

In anycase to those who are interested in Learning 3d Modelling for whatever reasons, this means there is now *Excellent* software out there you can download and utilize for free /i/smilies/16x16_robot-happy.gif

just spreading the joy.

For thos not familiar with Maya/Alias Wavefront it is used a lot in television and has been featured in shows like southpark, Babylon 5, and Star Trek i believe.

Watermarks on renders, panels etc... very uncomfortable, sorry.

Cheers,
