What you are about to watch is a 3D animated short film called “Max Man & Maya Man,” and it serves as a promotion video for new versions of the 3D animation software Autodesk 3ds Max and Autodesk Maya. The film brings the personalities of the software to life as robots, and they face off with each other. There’s a lot of work that went into creating this animation, and as you’ll see, it turned out to be incredibly cool.
Here are the details that came along with the short:
WOW has produced a 4K battle movie that personifies 3D animation software, “Max Man & Maya Man.” The special movie in conjunction with the announcement of the release of new versions of 3D animation software packages “Autodesk 3ds Max®” and “Autodesk Maya®.” This film features a battle scene between robots that personify the unique features of each software package, “Max Man” and “Maya Man.” WOW was in charge of planning, character design, and movie creation. Autodesk’s special site, the 3D model data for the two characters in the film, “Max Man” and “Maya Man” are made available free of charge for use within the software applications. Also, by providing free trial versions of the software packages and an environment that makes it easily accessible, they hope to spark an interest in VFX among new users and the younger generation. They plan to release 3D print data for Max Man and Maya Man, so it will be easy to make 3D prints of the characters.
