NewTek Unveils LightWave 10: Rigging Revealed DVD

The LightWave 10: Rigging Revealed DVD is designed to help artists master the art of rigging in LightWave 10 with fast, flexible techniques for creating character animation similar to animation found in many feature film pipelines. In the DVD, artist Lino Grande discusses the LightWave rigging process—from beginning to end—and offers step-by-step instructions for the rigging of bones and joints, building skeletons, and rigging without weight maps—a feature unique to LightWave 3D. Rigging without weight maps allows for character geometry changes after a rig has been created without experiencing the slow down often associated with repainting weight falloffs after each change.

New features in LightWave 10 are also covered in the new DVD. Artists will learn how to use the new VPR (Viewport Renderer) and export animation, deformations and dynamic simulations to the native LightWave MDD point cache format to import into CORE. The DVD also covers using the new Autodesk Geometry Cache tools to interchange data with other 3D applications.
