We are excited to announce that with the launch of WetaM, a suite of our previously exclusive proprietary tools will be made available to anyone, anywhere through Autodesk Maya.
WetaM will connect artists globally with software responsible for our work on some of the world’s most successful film and TV series – including The Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and Planet of the Apes.
Weta Digital CEO Prem Akkaraju says the launch of WetaM is the first step in democratising the visual effects and animation industry.
“WetaM is a transformational move that will raise the bar for global creative production, redefining the industry in the process. At its core, this partnership with Autodesk will extend the reach of the Weta magic, making it more accessible for artists in pursuit of creating amazing characters and worlds across film and television.”
The announcement of WetaM also marks the creation of a new software service division within Weta Digital. WetaM is the first platform launch for the department, however there will be other third-party partnerships and pure standalone tools as part of the service.
WetaM will launch with a private beta in Q4 2021. To stay up to do date, email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our database.
