View Full Version : LightWave 8 - Layout Initial Feature Overview

07 July 2003, 07:03 PM
Seems odd why no one from Newtek posted this here :shrug:
But this was posted on the Newtek forum a couple hours ago by Lee Stranahan

Just to give you a broad idea of what will be in LW[8] Layout, I'm going to mention a few of the highlights.

READ THIS!!!!!!! > These are not details. Details will come later, and that doesn't mean a lot later. This isn't everything in LightWave[8] - there are some things that are still underway for one reason or another, so I'm not going to mention them. There's no order to this list. It's not polished. It's just what it is - an overview of what will be in LightWave[8] - so please take it as an information source, and not a jumping off point for other discussions / rants.

I'm posting this to AVOID speculation and the resulting lunacy - not to fuel it.

LightWave[8] includes
- Multiple undo / redo in layout, as well as a number of other general workflow enhancements
- Enhanced IK / FK system
- Rigid body dynamics
- New soft body dynamics tools
- New particle system tools
- Auto Character Setup tools
- New character setup workflow that avoids going back and forth between modeler and layout
- Simplified render output workflow
- Game exporters
- Animatible UV coords
- Scene auto saving

Ah, sorry about that Milqman, didn't mean to steal your thunder :shrug:

BTW - Every time I see your tag I think of that really old Carry On film, "Carry on Spying", where the main baddy was called "Milchman". Don't suppose there's a connection :curious: :D

No, no connection :)
