The article focuses on the computer software Maya 6, in which enhancements, such as the Trax editor, motion retargeting and photoshop integration makes it more useful to artists and technical directors than version 5. Maya has made the redesigned Trax editor the command center of character animation. Trax is a nonlinear animation tool that looks a lot like an NLE with clips of animation on a timeline. The new ways to massage motion capture data in Maya 6 immediately reminded of the functionality in Kaydara's MotionBuilder. Shortly after the debut of Maya 6, Alias announced its intention to buy Kaydara, a deal that recently went through.
