Helping Choosing Maya Version - Complete or Unlimited

Hi,

We are currently making a decision to purchase Maya, and are trying to establish if we should by the Complete version or the Unlimited, and is the Platinum bundle worth the extra spend.

If we went for the Complete version and then we needed to use Fur or Cloth could are there plugins available for this, or is it worth spending an extra

Hi Dan!

My vote would be to go with Complete and then purchase Shave and a Haircut and/or Syflex when you have the need for fur or cloth. If you dont have a need for fur and cloth you could always use the $ you save to get another seat of complete.!

Syflex is a little pricey, but way better than maya cloth.

There's a bit more involved with Unlimited that are better answered on their site. Not knowing in what capacity you need it for I doubt you'll run into much that complete can't handle. You can always upgrade after the fact.

As far as platinum membership it seems pretty cool to have access to those tutorials. Depending on cost and how much you'd use them it may or may not be cheaper to just get video DVDs or even a collection of books if you want training. At least for me the training is the only reason I'd need to go above a bronze. I've never read up on it fully I guess. :-)

Another deciding factor is how many seats are you buying? If its just one then thats a toss up depending on what you will be doing with the software. If its a couple seats, I would recommend getting one unlimited and the rest complete. Mainly because you can render maya unlimited data with a complete license because all the batch render licenses support maya unlimited. that means you can use one station to do any unlimited effects work, yet still render them on all other licenses.
