Mainframe Trade Magazine Article from 1996

Thanks to a user on twitter I was pointed towards this trade magazine which features a article on the creation of 3D for TV animation and as the cover implies it includes interviews with Mainframe Entertainment staff involved in the creation of Transformers Beast Wars. The article covers the pros and cons of keyframe animation for 3D which Mainframe primarily used for the characters in Beast Wars, against the use of motion capture that others in the industry preferred at the time.
It's a fascinating look into how 3D animation for TV was created in the early days of industry. Check it out using the link below:
