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 in LightWave 11 [dwb]

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.

Price: $12.75

      This does use LightWave 11 features. There are ways to do this in LW9.6. I’ll take a look at it and see if I can make an addendum to the current course or maybe make another one.

    keep me posted as soon as you update the tutorial and if it’s in some ways doable in lightwave 9.6.1 i’ll buy it right away, i’m considering upgrading to lw11 later if i got more work
