Dynamica, Open Source Bullet Physics Plugin for Maya. Presented at Siggraph 2011.

Dynamica is a Maya plugin based on the open source Bullet Physics framework. Originally developed at Disney Animation Studios, the toolset has been enhanced with additional features and art direction friendly workflows. I worked on the project as a developer in from Fall 2010 - Summer 2012 and presented the new features at the Siggraph 2011 session titled Destruction and Dynamics for Film and Game Production.
