NEW LW-Tutorial DVD...released!!!

Dear Lightwavers

we would like to announce the release of our LW-Tutorial DVD - modeling a complete character in Lightwave 3D -

We have developed our own capture codec to provide the best screen quality. Further the DVD has 2 different modes ... a TV- mode and a PC-mode. Plus the DVD will contain object files, scenes files and textures.
The DVD has 2 language channels (english / german).

We hope you like it and feel free to contact us for any questions

Looks awesome, Carnera

Character modelling is certainly a good choice for a tutorial DVD, since it's something so many people struggle with! But I am sure you know that already

Proton, you madman - why are you ordering character modelling tutorials when you've already modelled thousands of characters LOL

Well, Carnera, good luck with sales!

There's a spelling error on this page..

"none organic modeling" should be "non-organic" or "inorganic."

I am not able to visit this site.
It just tries to load forever without fully doing so.
Perhaps the site is so overwhelmed with Lightwavers right now?

)...thanks for ordering

Carm3D: thanks for hunting bugs. we will fix the spelling mistakes asap.....hey...but it wasnt my fault.. markus (my partner)
did the

well, sorry i have to say no. ;( uv-texturing is a complete huge section. the dvd has its focus on modeling the character and creating hair using saslight... but i can tell you that our forthcoming dvds will cover interesting topics like "character animation" and "lw8 and its new power features" (as soon as its out)

nessjp: should work. maybe your internet provider has connection problems to Germany. anyway here are some direct links to the screenshots and to the english teaser video

Great to see the DVD is finally out and what an amazing price

Just a few questions though :

Is there a detailed TOC somewhere ?

What modeling method does this tutorial cover ( box modeling, patch modeling, etc ) ?

How many hours is this tutorial ?

I haven't seen the DVD teaser yet, but does this tutorial show how to create the character which is on the DVD cover ?

hi ghopper:

sorry theres no TOC yet...we will do some modifications on the page anyway and we will add a TOC list.
but to give you a rough overview about the topics

- head modeling
- hair using saslight
- cloth modeling (jacket, gloves, boots, pants, shirt)
- gun modeling
- eyepatch modeling

i will show box modeling and i think i will use 5 tools to model the entire character. so in a very optimized and fast way

btw its a DVD 9, so you can access / read the rom part (objects, scenes and textures) on PC and Mac.

the DVD has a playtime of ca. 165 minutes and yes, the character on the cover will be modeled
