Hi all you lightwavers :wavey:




I am a long time Max user. I have always had this little secret. I have always wanted to get into Lightwave in some shape or form. I think I'll always usee Max in some form or other.But it's time I go for Lightwave--------:applause:

My main thing or interest is modeling,characters for the most part. I understand Sub-D modeling is the best in Lightwave?Why is this,is it really that much better than Max sub-D modeling,and why?
Where can I get the best full from scratch type tut's on Sub-D modeling within Lightwave .
I mean starting out with a BOX and going from there type tut's.
Thanks for hearing me out,and for any guidance.:beer:

UserDeltas modeling videos are pretty cool. (http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/tutorials/modeling/head/index.html)

There are others at the Newteks site also.

I have a whole course that deals with this, complete with online support and hours of lecture on CD. You can get information on the course atL http://www.splinegod.com/professionalcharacterseries.html
Heres an example of some of the work done by one of my students, Peter Duncan.

Steve,

Doesn't answer your question re comparisons, but try this link
http://www.members.shaw.ca/lightwavetutorials/Main_Menu.htm

Probably the most comprehensive list of lightwave tutorials out there and organised into various categories.

By the way I have a dino modeling tutorial on the above site. A little outdated now, but maybe worth a look.
