I'm not very familiar with VFX production but I've been asked to do some research on companies that develop Maya plugins.
However, I'm having trouble locating such companies.
First, I tried Autodesk's website, hoping they would have an official developer directory, but they do not. Edit: I did find the official Autodesk site, but the rest of my question still stands.
Then, I tried Googling terms such as hire "maya plugin" developer and "maya plugin" development companies. However, I am getting very few hits.
How can I search for companies that do Maya development? I do not want a list of Maya development companies (that would obviously be off topic); I just don't know enough about the terminology to perform a search, so I'd like to know which keywords have potential.
