I went to the University today for a New Media faculty meeting. I am the New Media Representative and so I sit it on the meetings and let the rest of the students know what’s going on in the Faculty.
Although it was a long meeting, I did appreciate learning a few things. I found out that they are considering buying 51 licenses for Maya – maybe Maya Complete or maybe Maya Unlimited. (Apparently Maya Unlimited is more complete than the former – sheesh.) They decided that if they do go ahead and get the Maya licenses, which it looks like they will, that they will not be dropping their 3D Studio Max software.
They also showed me a list of the software available to the students this semester, and it looks like among other things they’ve upgraded to the CS versions of Photoshop and Illustrator, Adobe Premiere Pro 1.5, and the Macromedia MX 2004 package.
I think it’s going to be a good semester for me.
