Maya is an advanced modeling, animation and rendering package. We are very fortunate to have this package installed on our system, and thank Alias for the donation of the licence.
To use it you only need to type maya. However it is in /usr/sbin??? So you should make user that that directory is in your path. Oh, and you probably want to ensure that you are using an SGI. Unlike the previous Alias|Wavefront package it does not require you to run a user setup script.
