The Comprehensive Guide to IKBooster (Parts 1 and 2)
IKBooster has baffled and bewildered Lightwave users for over a decade. Despite the incredible value it adds to Lightwave’s animation toolset, it is a fact that IKBooster has remained as a tool of obscurity due to lacking documentation and an unusual and unorthodox (but extremely efficient) interface.
Ryan Roye has taken it upon himself to create the first online set of documents covering the mysterious but stupidly powerful and awesome Character Animation Tool for LightWave3D (which ships with the product); IKBoost. As a fellow student of Larry “SplineGod” Shultz who was the world expert on IKBoost, Ryan has done an amazing job on this manual. Everyone should read it and book mark it right now. You can find the manual here.
