These new AI tools for Maya could transform 3D art and animation

The next big AI trend will be text-to-3D. Autodesk has announced it will soon be adding generative AI tools into its leading 3D modelling and animation software, Maya. You'll be able to generate textures, materials and HDR images in Maya using generative AI, and it could be huge.

The reveal came at this year's Siggraph 2023 where Autodesk explained how its AI will be developed using Nvidia's Picasso AI platform, the same one used by Adobe for Firefly as well as Getty Images and Shutterstock. What's really interesting is how Autodesk will be integrating Maya with Wonder Studio, Wonder Dynamics' impressive AI animation software.
