Every year at SIGGRAPH, we look forward to hearing all about new up and coming technologies in computer graphics.  So much to be caught up on from this years conference, we'll start you off with a few!

1. Autodesk announces Maya 2018

"Fast and stable" is the motto from the Maya team for the coming upgrade, which is definitely something for 3D Artists all over to be hopeful for.  There will also be a live link between Maya and After Effects to be able to view real time changes which can also save some time!  Overall, we can expect a lot more improvements on previous features.
