Hey everybody! Please put the word out that we are looking for a 3ds Max SDK expert! I know this blog is mainly targetting Maya, but in our role we usually work with multiple API, so while the job opening is mainly for 3ds Max, we will be happy by someone who knows Maya. Or someone knowing Maya already but willing to learn 3ds Max SDK. You know even more API such as FBX, MotionBuilder, talk to us.
API KNOWLEDGE TRANSFER IS THE REASON FOR BEING
