Default Maya 2009 Student superpack from Studica

Hey,
Just a relatively simple question about a perpetual student license for Maya 2009 Unlimited:
http://www.studica.com/products/prod...roductid=57961
It seems as though you are able to specify Mac or Windows at install time? At least, it says Mac/Win DVD on the selection, although it says "superpack is PC based only". (I realize that some components like mudbox are only available for PC)
I'm assuming there are some people here that have purchased a student license and am looking for clarification.

The bigger question though, since I'm not too concerned about OS X right now (haven't quite ruled out the option however), is 32-bit versus 64-bit. I can't find anywhere on the site that says what version of Maya it will want to install. So, since I'm running Win-32 right now, but hoping to purchase a new computer and run either Vista-64 or Win-64 (or a Mac Pro), what I'm hoping to do is install it on this computer, and then once I get a new one, to uninstall and re-install on that. Will it let me do that?

Hopefully that all made sense and you can decipher my intentions. I did email studica, but didn't get a response. I would look around to other sites, but that was the only one that looked like it would ship to Canada

Thanks so much for any help and information you can give me. My 30-day trial finished and Autodesk doesn't have the PLE anymore :rant: but I want to get back into Maya ASAP!!!

If you get the maya 2009 disk (which you should unless its download only) it comes with 32 bit for Windows XP/vista and OSx 10.5.2 and above, and 64 bit for Windows XP 64/vista 64, and linux, currently there's no version of Maya for 64 bit OSX (dont know if OSX is 64 bit as yet) so your licence should cover whatever you install onto.

The general (or what I have to do) is e-mail autodesk with the ethernet address of the PC i'm installing on and they send the licence through to activate it, same to move the licence over to another PC, though there was a guy in the basics forum who said that he had it going on multiple machines.

Excellent! That's just what I wanted to hear. Thanks for the info.
No, Autodesk doesn't have a 64-bit version for OS X (which is 64-bit) and I don't know when or if they will come out with one, which is one of the main reasons I'll probably stick with windows for now. Ah well.

By the way, does anyone know if the student version has a different file format than the commercial version? I know the files made with the PLE were not able to be opened in the full version, so I'm wondering, if I should decide to upgrade to the commercial version down the road, if I will be able to use the models that were created with the student version.

Also, I've heard mixed things about whether or not there's a little watermark to indicate that it's an educational version. Anybody want to clarify? I bought the software anyway (Yay!:attn so I guess I could just wait for it to be delivered to find out, but it'd be nice to know ahead of time so I won't be disappointed by big watermarks like the PLE (I'm hoping not).

Thanks again,
Stwert

Its not watermarked and the file format is the same as the full commercial version. The only difference is that the file contains what version its created in originally.
