You hold in your hands the best-selling guide to NewTek's LightWave 3D animation software, completely updated for LightWave v9 by award-winning animator and trainer Dan Ablan. Rather than rehash the documentation like other books, this down-to-earth, easy-to-follow guide offers an invaluable set of project tutorials that teach you the ins and outs of LightWave and show you the techniques you need to master this powerful 3D software. Inside LightWave v9's accompanying DVD features hours of high- quality video training tutorials that will help you take the projects in the book to new heights. No other book has taught more LightWave 3D users than Inside LightWave.

  • Insights into the new LightWave v9 workflow
  • Powerful new surfacing with the Node Editor
  • Character modeling
  • Bones and rigging for character animation
  • Particle animation
  • Hard body and soft body dynamics
  • Rendering concepts with the new Global Render options
