Yeah, it all seems a bit myserious right now... but wow, what a cool tool that will be when it's out! :bounce:

Oh and thanks for the avatar compliment - Jeroentje drew it after he saw those dodgy pics of me in the "show a pic of yourself" thread :) I just HAD to use it as my avatar!

It was pretty scarily simple on Animation Master, so I'm sure that will carry over in the Lightwave version.

Maybe i am missing something but it looks a lot like Smartgons.

But i am always welcome to new techniques.

There are definitely similarities, but Setup Machine has existed, at least for Animation Master, for quite awhile.

I believe that product was announced many, many months ago and so far nothing has emerged.

Yeah after the Hash version, messiah was next in line and it has now fallen simply because PMG have premade scripts that can do 80% of it now. I wonder if you can edit the setup after animation?

how about ACS 4 that proton talked about a while ago? I'm still very curious... hummmm, proton, did you leaked something you shouldn't have?...

Should be out's gonna put some smiles on peoples faces :)

300-400 bucks though, american dollars = 450-600 canadian dollars!!. That is a little expensive for my blood, I mean it's only a set up machine, especially when there seemed to always be bugs for quite a while when it came out for animation master. I think I will stick to the ACS. Proton made ACS4 sound pretty cool so I am keeping what cash I have in my pocket.
