Mechanical Displays in LightWave 11
We are pleased to announce our latest training video by D.W. Burman. In this budget training video, D.W.Burman shows how to make a mechanical display in LightWave 11 showing modeling, using instances and texturing.
Mechanical displays use moving parts to display an image. In the case of this project, the image is made by the tilting of little wooden tiles. This set of videos covers building this project from the ground up including modeling, texturing (both basic and Node-Based), instancing, and using an image sequence to animate the instances. This is not an in-depth study of any one area/tool in LightWave and little time is spent covering features and options that are not actually used in this project.
TRT: 4 hours 20 minutes
UPDATE: This product now includes a free bonus tutorial: Mechanical Displays: Morph, which shows how to set up and animate a morph-based mechanical display that will work LightWave 9 and up.
