I found this demo showcasing some of the early work we did at Animal Logic regarding our integration of USD within Autodesk Maya (aka AL_USDMaya, more here).
It was a fantastic experience to be involved on the many iterations integrating USD in the studio,
developing an integration of the likes of
AL_USDMaya was a huge undertaking made only
possible by the many talented developers contribuiting within the studio and in the open source
Funnily enough this demo was never meant to be public, I was originatelly asked to recorded it as an informal little demo to be shared with engineers at Autodesk working on Maya's efforts to support USD nativelly (more here), It's inspiring to see all the progress made since then :)
