In this course, D.W. Burman unlocks the power of LightWave's gradient systems by demonstrating all of the various gradient types found in LightWave and by showing example scenes that use gradients. This course starts at a fairly basic level, but is geared toward people who have some experience using LightWave.

Part Two of the Bullet Holes in a Metal Door tutorial picks up where part one left off by adding sparks and smoke (particle emitters), the interior of the hangar (very simple modeling), and making a couple of variations on the project. Project files are included so you can follow along even if you don't have Part One.

This project based video tutorial for Lightwave 9 and up covers the basics of image sequences and the Image Editor, gapped image sequences, node-based surfacing, simple sub-division and polygonal modeling, and image-based deformations.

This value-packed project-based tutorial from Dana Burman teaches you how to use LightWave's particle system and HyperVoxel sprites to simulate bullets from a machine gun hitting the ground. Several techniques are used in building this scene including front projection mapping, controlling transparency with weight maps, adding and editing particle emitters, using collision objects to trigger particles, setting up HyperVoxel sprites, converting curves to motion paths, and more.
