Hello,

I recently learned about Pixie and would really like to try using it with Maya 8.5, but so far I have been unable to get it installed on my machine and am not sure if it would even work with my version of maya. I downloaded the pixie installer and also the latest copy I could find of liquidmaya (highest I could find said that it would work for maya 7.0), but haven't been able to get either to work so far. I was also curious as to how similar this is to renderman, I have some training dvds on how to use renderman from digital tutors, would these be appropriate to use for learning pixie? Many thanks again, looking forward to being able to use this.
