As of now, there is no update on when Maya is going to be supported to run on Max OS 10.7. Autodesk and Apple are still working on a solution to this problem. Please visit The Area discussion forums for future updates. You can also check the Maya Updates and Service Pack page .
If this answers your question, please accept this as a soluiton, so that other can benefit from this answer.
I am utterly STAGGERED to learn that more than nine months after this was first posted (and heaven only knows how long before that when the software was under development) that *STILL* Maya does not work with Lion.
Staggered. There are too many apps that need Lion to run, I HAVE to move with the times - even if Autodesk can't
All I can say is thank goodness I was donated my copy , and have only wasted 4 months waiting for it, instead of £3000 paying for it.
Any multi-million dollar company that has taken almost a year to (not) manage to get its software working on a major creative/production operating system like OSX has some serious organisational questions to ask itself. Period.
Folks back in the day (and even today), you would have to run software on the software for years even during upgrades.
Avid was notorious for that. Of late they have been up to date with Lion.
