Automated LOD generation
New tools make it easier for 3D artists to create and transfer level of detail (LOD) data for 3D game assets.Now you can define the percentage of mesh reduction for each LOD and create reduced meshes that can be used in-engine.

Built-in sculpting tools
Brush-based sculpting tools enable artists to do high-level sculpting on their models without having to export to a different tool.

  • Save time by making small tweaks and adjustments with new sculpting tools directly in Maya LT.
  • Use the included base meshes as a starting point to save time when creating new models or to start learning the new sculpting tools.

Improved modelling and UV tools
An improved UV creation and editing toolset in Maya LT 2016 makes the workflow for UV maps easier than ever.

  • The new set of Mudbox (US site)-style UV brushes make the workflow more intuitive for artists.
  • New additions to the toolset include: interactive cut/sew edge tool, automatic projection, pinning, weld, split and an unfold brush.

Indie-friendly game modelling tools
Create and edit the characters, props and environments you need for your game with sophisticated game modelling tools.

Improve game model efficiency
Use a variety of built-in tools to make sure the 3D models created for your game avoid negative game performance.
Create higher-resolution character and environment models in unlimited scene sizes within Maya LT and then reduce polygonal resolution for better game performance.
Optimise content for mobile devices with polygon reduction, data clean-up, blind data tagging and level-of-detail tools.

OpenSubdiv library
Model faster with subdivision surfaces by seeing quickly updated previews as you make changes to the model. Use the decades of research and experience of the Pixar animation team when using subdivision surface modelling for your game characters and environments.

Export/import skin weight maps

Artists gain more flexibility when creating and adjusting skin weight maps for character skin deformations. Re-importing a skin weight map lets you make changes to the topology of a model without having to completely re-create a new map.

Improved animation tools
Get updated animation layer editor, SplineIK and Cluster Deformation tools. Improved animation tools add SplineIK and Cluster Deformation to help you to create more diverse and complex character animations. An updated Game Export tool makes it easier to manage and export multiple animation clips in one or more files.

Animation tools for indie game makers
Bring your characters, props and environments to life with efficient game animation tools based on Maya and HumanIK animation software.

Character skeleton creation
Create skeletons for your game characters faster with a set of built-in tools that make it easier for artists to set up characters for animation.

Geodesic voxel binding
Bind modelled geometry to skeletons faster, often with just a few clicks. This new method can handle highly complex or less-than-perfect geometry, with even overlapping or non-watertight meshes requiring far less clean-up than traditional methods, making it easier for new users to achieve good results. The compute process to perform the binding is fast and the resulting skin weights are compatible with existing skinning methods in Maya LT.

Roll bones in HumanIK
The HumanIK animation system in Maya LT now supports up to 5 roll bones per limb to help avoid the candy-wrapper effect that can occur when a limb turns on its own axis. A UI update exposes the roll bones and makes the HumanIK animation system simpler to use.

Quick Rig tool
Novice animators can rig characters more easily by using the Quick Rig tool to generate and place a HumanIK (US site) rig within the geometry of their bipedal characters. Users can position guide markers that improve the accuracy of rig placement. The tool also applies basic skinning to the model.

Smart. Flexible. Powerful. Autodesk Subscriptions.

Discover what Maintenance Subscription, Subscription, and Cloud Service Subscription can do for your budget, your people and your projects.

Subscription

Autodesk Subscription gives you access to Autodesk software—the same full version you get with a perpetual license—but with a flexible, pay-as-you-go approach for a software budget that’s easier to manage.

  • Pay-as-you-go access
  • Scalable licensing
  • Up-to-date software
  • Additional cloud and software services

Difference between Single-User and Multi-User

Single-user:
Contract administrators grant access to subscription for single-user products and associated services by assigning a named user to a product. Each named user is an individual with a unique Autodesk ID. The number of named users you can assign per product is determined by the total number of licenses available for that product.

Multi-user:
Supports a specific maximum number of users on computers connected to a network. Licenses are issued via Network License Manager (NLM) software utility to each user who starts an Autodesk product, up to the number of licenses purchased. Usually returns to NLM when a user closes all Autodesk products, which makes the license available to other users. NLM can be configured to allow a user to borrow a license and disconnect from the network until a specified return date—a borrowed license is only returned to NLM on or before the return date

Cloud Service Subscription

Now you can access your tools via the Internet without tying up your desktop or maintaining software. Get access to select Autodesk cloud services for creating, editing, analysing, and sharing work through a software-as-a-service (SaaS) subscription model.

  • Convenient access
  • Simplified collaboration
  • Secure storage
  • Powerful computing
