Richard Kerris, head of Alias|wavefront’s Maya for Mac project, has left the company as well as eight other unnamed individuals, reports Macworld UK. It’s unclear what impact Kerris’ departure will have on the software, which many perceived as a large feature in Apple’s cap. Maya is one of the world’s most powerful 3D environments, and the announced of a Mac OS X version made headlines last year. Maya is currently scheduled for release in mid-summer.
