Animal Logic's USDMaya integration

I made this demo showcasing some of the work we are doing at Animal Logic regarding our integration of USD within Autodesk Maya (aka AL_USDMaya plugin, 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 contributing within the studio and in the open source community.

Funnily enough this demo was never meant to be public, I was originally asked to record it as an informal little demo to be shared with engineers at Autodesk working on Maya’s efforts to support USD natively (more here), It’s inspiring to see all the progress made since then :)
