USD Contributors

USD Contributors


The following list is almost certainly incomplete, but is an attempt to credit all the folks who have contributed not just code but ideas to the evolution of scene description that is today embodied in USD, between 1995 and 2019 at Pixar, as well as all the contributors of pull requests we have accepted.  If you think you should be on this list, please let us know!  In addition to the folks listed below who have contributed code or direct support, we would especially and specifically like to thank the Pixar leadership for their forward-thinking and support for allowing and encouraging the USD project to be open-sourced, including Ed Catmull, Jim Morris, Steve May, and Guido Quaroni.  Guido provided the initial proposition and challenge for creating USD, and Bill Polson navigated the sea of patents we needed to release to make USD public.
