Learning Lightwave
Learning Lightwave

A complete training on DVDRom Mac/PC to master Lightwave v.9 with Olivier Michon, the first certified NewTek Europe trainer. After a general presentation of this impressive application from NewTek, you will learn the Modeler : the interface, the views and the selection modes furthermore the subdivision surfaces, the basis of modelling tools with practical examples and modelling methods used by professionals. The tutorial then explains the Layout : after a handling, you will use different Editors (Scene, Graph, Surface, Node), create skeletons of animation for mechanical and organic objects and use different kind of lights and cameras with several practical examples to test yourself.
