Product customization and visualization, mostly. For customer preproduction approval and for catalogs and such...

btw - chikega - cool little anim! Expression driven morph, I assume?

To fill my head with thoughts. Meaning that when I want to create something, I have to think it and thinking calms me down.

...not very professional, I know. But hey, I do this for fun :)

We do about everything here.
So far we have used LW for:

Architectural visualizations (many).

Technical visualizations

Special effects for various Imagefilms.

Special effects for tv- and cinema- commercials, including a few completely animated commercials for cinema.

We made a custom- version of LW for ZKW an Austrian car- headlight- company (including custom plugins and custom- interface). LW is now used for rapid prototyping there.

We custom- made a car- racing- simulation (including a 3d- engine that uses LW as a level- editor) for AVL List (Austrian engineering company).

Doing modeling- jobs for various studios in our area.

Development of a plugin- pack for medical viz in LW (in progress).

Various classified projects.

I spent 10 years using it to enhance my work on TV commercials and training/marketing videos. Now I work for a government contractor and use it to produce air combat training simulations. :)

print work - LW magic makes my brochures shine so much brighter than the competition.

They even come crawling to me asking how I made them or try to copy my designs....

I've used it for medical animation, logos and branding IDs, character animation (both by itself and in conjunction with Messiah), and last but not least: recreation. Despite its quirks and things that make you go "hmm" (along with some other choice words), the damn program's just downright fun to use. When I'm not doing actual paid work, I love spending time figuring out new methods and techniques that I've never tried before. :)

For animations and everyday stuff. I'm at uni studying animation, so we use Lightwave there. I've made birthday cards and other stuff with it, but my passion would have to be animation, I love making stuff come to life, both characters and scenes.

Nope, I mean the school of witchcraft and wizardry. I went to kings cross about a week ago but couldn't get onto the platform. Now I have a nasty bruise on my head.
