Autodesk has announced that Autodesk Maya 2011 will add 64-Bit support for Apple's Mac OS X operating system.  Autodesk Maya is a 3D modeling, animation, rendering, and visual effects software.  Autodesk Maya has been used on Oscar-winning for Best Visual Effects since 2001 as well as on numerous games.
From the Maya 2011 Press Release:
"Mac OS X 64-Bit Availability -- Mac OS X users can access considerably more memory to handle larger and more complex scenes with the new 64-bit executable."

Note that the current version, Maya 2010 is available as a 32-bit application for Apple Mac OS X, Microsoft Windows XP Professional, or Microsoft Windows Vista Business.  A 64-bit version of Maya 2010 is supported on Microsoft Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Microsoft Windows Vista Business 64-bit edition operating systems.

By adding a 64-bit version for Mac OS X, Autodesk will enable 3D animation and visual effects professionals to leverage the power of Mac OS X instead of having to rely on 64-bit Windows-based systems.
