Hi All!

We at Stillwater Pictures are proud to announce version 1.1b of Maestro for Lightwave. What does 1.1b have over 1.02? Here's a short list:

AutoRig and Controller have been merged. Now you can litterally rig your character with one click. (see animated .GIF above...)
Command hotspots now offer a pulldown showing all available commands. (It's sort of like having the NG Commands manual right in the hotspot panel...)
Maestro now has a config file for storing the Maestro Home Path and 8 keyboard shortcuts.
There is now a setting to control what sort of curve (TCB, Linear, Stepped, etc...) Maestro creates keyframes with.
Maestro can be configured to automatically send the channels you're modifying to Graph Editor.
The Rigging file is automatically loaded when Maestro starts up. (This can be reconfigured to open your own custom file.)
Config files can now be loaded straight out of .LWS files.
A LOT of new NG Commands have been added to not only make auto-rigging smoother, but also provide added functionality to the animation tools.
A lot of bugs have been fixed, included the 'gray screen' bug that occasionally showed up.

We've also introduced a new demo version of Maestro. Not only does it show off some of the new features, but it also takes you through the process of animating with Maestro. The demo is different enough that we've reset all the demo codes. That's right, even if you've used up your 14 day trial on 1.02, you can still get a new 14 day trial with 1.1b!

Wanna grab the demo? Go to http://www.stillwaterpictures.com/maestro and fill in your email address in the submission form at the bottom of the page. An email will automatically be sent to you with a download link and your own personal unlock code.

Ready to purchase? Maestro sells for $149.95 and is available for purchase through through Kurv Studios (http://www.kurvstudios.com/Merchant2/merchant.mv?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=SW-SP01-0002&Category_Code=plugins).

I got the email for the update before I even had a chance to download 8.3. That's pretty quick work in updating. This must be a record in updating a plugin. That kind of support is amazing.
