Could someone tell me how he did the wireframe render at :31? I can't seem to get it right.

This is a cool short. The only thing that really bothers me and pulls me out of the scene is that her hair isn't blowing enough (did you see the smallish fan on the greenscreen set?) If she was really traveling that fast on the back of a truck, her hair would be virtually (pun) horizontal the whole time.

Cool. Again it shows what can be done with lightwave by a small crew. =)

I like.

It looks like its just a saved native lightwave preview.
To the right in the interface below the timeline there is a make preview dropdown. (This is just from my head)
You have the ability to make a prewiev and save the preview. Before you make it, be sure to sett the correct codec under options. (in the same dropdown) Then hit make, enter the frame range you mant to preview. When its done just hit save preview.

awesome! i dug it... Great find!

my only real complaint is the sound design. really cool sound editing would kick this thing up 50 notches.

I agree. Awesome work in many regards, but the sound and some of the motion would have been worked on some more. I.e. check how the police car moves when doing that slide-to-stop at 0:40... ahem... if it was by a car that had eyes and should behave like a human being, sure ;)

great 3d work!...bad composition...some stuff was screaming CG, and not because of the LW part of the equation.

I liked the ball crushing into the truck. Do you think it was dynamics, animated morphs? The animation of the wrecks were pretty sweet.

Thanks for that. Forgot all about it. No matter how much people bash Lightwave it is still capable of some jaw dropping stuff.

I'm guessing this is Lightwave as well

Inspiring stuff.

I wonder how he did the speed ramps with the renders. Timewarp?
