An Evening With William Shatner Asterisk (and Max)
Our friend and co-worker, Rob Ramirez, shared some recent work with us and provided details on how he used Max. The best part is that you don’t have to be a fan of Star Trek… not that I’ve ever met someone like that. The show was built entirely with Max from start to finish. [...]
