Andreas has been asking me to make the t1000 bullet hit, but i was having trouble doing it, i then asked billy3d.

But you beat us to it.

looks good, post something here so i can give you a +1

Could you make another one, just so when andreas has more than one hit they will look a little different.

well done.

Hi slayer 1441,
Do you think lightwave3d is worth buying?

Hi slayer 1441,
Do you think lightwave3d is worth buying?
Lightwave is a nice package with many of the tools that other packages require to be purchased separately such Soft-body dynamics, particles, hair and fur, plus unlimited render nodes. I've tried a few programs out there such as 3DMax but in my opinion found Lightwave to be one of the best. It might have a steep learning curve if you're new to 3D animation but once you get the hang of things it can be a really powerful piece of software. Below are a few examples of film and tv projects that have been created with the help of LightWave 3D:

Blade 2
Brotherhood of the Wolf
Panic Room
Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones
The Time Machine
XXX
Sliders
Smallville
Space: Above and Beyond
Stargate SG-1 - (Emmy Nomination)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Star Trek: Voyager - (1999, 2001 Visual Effects Emmy Award Winner)
Timecop
Weird Science
The X-Files - (2000 Visual Effects Emmy Award Winner)

You can also look at a few tutorials that are available on the web to see how difficult it is before you considering buying it

Hope this helps

Thanks Billy

I'll upload a test shot to see what u think a.s.a.p

I dont think to make tripleX they used lightwave
sonyimageworks used maya and XSI softimage
As with most movies the animators probably used a variety of 3D apps and lightwave was one of them
