Alias has announced the release of Maya Unlimited for Mac OS X, their 3D design and animation software package that bundles the company's previously released Maya Complete software with advanced special effects kits.

Costing $6,999 (around £3,850), the bundle includes Maya Hair, Maya Fluid Effects, Maya Cloth and Maya Live. Maya Unlimited for Mac OS X was first announced at June's Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC).

Additionally, the company announced two new bundle offers: Maya Platinum Bundle, and Maya Productivity Pack. Both are available starting today for Windows, Mac or Linux systems for $2,199 (£1,210) each.

The Maya Platinum Bundle comes with a node-lock or floating license of Maya Complete and Learning Maya 6 Foundation or Maya Unlimited 6, along with a one year subscription to the Maya Platinum Membership program, which grants members access to all software updates and upgrade, premium telephone and online support, online case management tools and no-charge priority license transfers.

The Maya Productivity Pack includes a node-lock or floating license of Maya Complete 6, six Maya learning resources and a one year subscription to the Maya Silver Membership program, which offers Maya users access to learning and networking resources.
