3.web based product sites such as www.catslikefelix.co.uk
4.product packaging print
5.icon creation for control panels on web hosting sites [heart internet.co.uk]
6.3d model conversion used from xsi/max or into lightwave for t.v
7.arch tech design

Duh, to me "for CAD Work /ArcViz Visualization" implies stuck in the 80's & 90's. I did check that box, but would have preferred "Architectural/Engineering/Construction (AEC) or Virtual Design & Construction (VDC) or Building Information Model (BIM).

I use it mostly for ArcViz at work but once in a while we get the odd job in that would not be under the ArcViz label.

More and more, R+H Box is using LightWave for in-game cinematics and game trailers, but we still use it for commercials and movie effects too.

We're not using it so much for character animation anymore though, having finally shifted to the typical 'Maya-PointOven-LightWave' pipeline in the last year.

You forgot "development" ;)
Anyway, I voted for everything, because I will do whatever comes along. In my 15 years I have done everything from realtime 3d- engine objects, to game cutscenes, to archviz, to packshots, to film, to tv to print (am sure I forgot something now) and back...
I cant think of anything that I would not be able to do with LW.
Some things do take a bit longer than others, but still...

I used it for Virtual Sets, Motion Graphics, Illustration work ( ALOT), Print work, and some character animation. When the python engine goes live, I will use it for data visualization. BTW we render all in HD so the speed of the LW engine is a big plus.

Despite the fact that you have already clearly and adequately explained it, I shall ask again..

What is Magz?

Wow, I forgot about this thread. Anyway, after reading my last post from a few months ago, I though I should clarify my character anim comment. We do our char animation in Maya, but we still do hair and fur animation, cloth, and of course final rendering in LightWave. We've started doing some cloth anim in Maya though. Almost all other animation is still done using LightWave.

The recent introduction of Turbulence has us excited about FX in LightWave again. On a recent production, we started using Houdini, and even outsourced some FumeFX stuff, but Turbulence will mean we can continue to keep our LW guys busy with this type of pyro stuff.

Education. To teach students about 3D and what their opportunities are.

I find the "TV" option is too broad. Commercials or TV shows? it´s quite a different animal, you know...still...I use it for both of ´em :D

There seems to be a bug in the % column, it adds up to over 300%.


CAD/ArchViz & physical scale models.

Scientific Viz and teaching for me.
I'm really surprised a selection for just hobbiest is not up there since so many users are.

It is what I suspected: about 45% for CAD Work /ArcViz Visualization
