Interview with Maestro creators Brian Pace and Eric Smith

Brian Pace and Eric Smith of Stillwater Films were looking for a way to speed up character rigging, character animation and other animation tasks for their production, The Terimon Stone, and settled on creating a proprietary toolset for these tasks. Realizing that they had made a product which could be very useful to thousands of other LightWave animators, they released it as a commercial plug-in, and the project has in turn taken on a life of its own, with Stillwater recently releasing version 2 of Maestro, their powerful automation and animation control system for LightWave. NewTek spoke with these two developers about the latest version of this popular LightWave plug-in, as well as their take on developing plug-ins for LightWave.
