Maya Muscle facilitates skin and muscle animation

Autodesk's Maya 2008 Extension 1 is now available to download, bringing with it Maya Muscle, the muscle and skin system that Autodesk acquired from Comet Digital.

Using Maya Muscle, artists can direct skin motion through muscle and skin behaviour, skin sculpting and deformation tools and varied weighting options. Maya Muscle uses the standard Maya interface, allowing users to get up to speed rapidly.

The update is available to all Maya 2008 Complete and Unlimited Subscription customers with Gold support, and is not available separately.
