Thanks to:

Jeff Almasol - I learned a lot by dissecting his scripts at http://www.redefinery.com/

Jeff Holsted - For the initial push to make the script, as well as being the sole beta tester and successfuly breaking it several times.

Andrew Kramer - When I saw the initial previews for his SureTarget preset, I realized it was possible to make this camera setup in AE easier than I had originally thought.

Chris Smith - For MoCam, part of CS_Tools which is a free camera rig for Cinema 4d. This script was loosely based on MoCam functionality.

Role: Design, Code
