Have any Wavers entered this challenge? This is really why I am learning CG and Lightwave. As a newbie... I'd love a tut on this. any leads.

I understand that I am trying to sprint before I learn to crawl... but I really wanna' do this. Any hits. Keywords. Chapters in the manual. I shot my footage... now what?:shrug:

Any help would be great.

Look into camera mapping.

There's a tut on Newtek's Site.

good luck.

Thanks proton. I'm not going to enter; I just really want to learn how to do it. I've read most of the progress reports, and am beginning to understand the workflow. Unfortunately it seems that there aren't any LWavers for me to copy from directly ;)

I'm having problems importing the footage to begin with. Let alone locking down the camera and modeling the street geometry

I will give your suggested site a careful read.

Thanks again
