Chapter i. Introduction > What You Will Need

What You Will Need

For starters, of course, you’ll need a license for Maya or the Maya PLE (the free Personal Learning Edition) for Windows or Macintosh installed on your computer. For advanced features like Fluids, you will need Maya Unlimited. See Maya’s documentation for instructions on installing the program.

In terms of hardware, Maya’s incredible power comes at a price. Maya is the most resource-intensive software I know of, so I recommend beefing up your machine with as much RAM and processor power as you can manage—you’ll definitely notice the difference.
