Two great things have happened in 2011 and continue on into 2012. First of all, NewTek announced LightWave 11 in LA back in November and we expect to see it released very shortly. The second was the completion of the VFX work for the Finnish Feature Film Sci/Fi Dark Comedy – Iron Sky. These two events are deeply linked together because LightWave was a major component in making sure Iron Sky got made. I along with Luke Whitehorn, Lee Stringer, Tuomas Kankola and Samuli Torsonnen all worked very hard on this film to bring it to life over 140 shots shown through out the picture. Now its time to start showing you how we did it.
So with that said we will be bringing forward several tutorials directly related to the production of the VFX for Iron Sky using LightWave 3D, here on Liberty3D.com very soon. From Dynamics and Digital Pyro using HVs and Turbulence FD to lighting and rendering in LightWave 11 which we used heavily on the show, plus the new instancing technology along with sophisticated rigging techniques and production methods to get shots out the door, this new series of videos from Liberty3D.com will put you into the production along side us as we built the show.
Stay tuned for more details!
