Finn Arild Aasheim is, by day, proprietor of Aasheim IT Resource but by night he makes cool plugins for Caligari trueSpace including Syncer which allow you to synchronize .WAV, MIDI or AVI files to your real-time previews. LightMaster is another trueSpace plugin which allows much more flexible control over lights. It is no coincidence that these are both handy for designing music videos since Finn designed them for his own music video project. 
Nick Robalik nick@digital-soapbox.com (click the name to send him mail and the picture to go to his web site http://www.digital-soapbox.com  Nick is a good guy who makes good plugins for trueSpace. He is also available for graphic design work like CD covers and web site. This is how he puts it: "Digital.Soapbox is a full-service design house specializing in game and broadcast animations, illustration, and design. They are also responsible for the creation of some excellent shaders and plugins for Caligari's trueSpace4, including Animator's Toolbox and two soon to be released shaders, CausticWorks and an as yet unnamed fur shader."

Just Plain Cool Sites:

Computer Music Consulting thought you just might like these sites for one reason or another.

Metacreations makes some really good graphics software like Bryce and Painter.
Caligari makes trueSpace, a 3D modeling and rendering package which is a great compromise between professional features an affordable price. One strength of the program is the very large array of free or affordable plugins and very good email list as well as many very good web sites with tutorials.
Rhinosceros 3D is  professional NURBS modeling software that is very powerful yet easy to use.
