"We just finished our first big project that used butterfly entirely. I'd like to thank you for supporting the software and working with me at the level of detail and turnaround you did (even at very late hours at night), otherwise I seriously think this project would be in BIG trouble. We had a LOT of shots to finish at a very short timetable. So thanks for a great product! It was a good investment for us! We'll be using butterfly from now on in."
