Yep, that's a great idea.

Do you know if the video will be available to those who have already purchased LW10? if not do you know the cost of the video?

How is it different to the video of him rigging with LW10 at siggraph? The description of it sounds exactly the same and could easily be the same character and process padded out to fill a DVD.

I think on a DVD he'll be able to cover far more stuff in depth than he did at SIGGRAPH!

If this does become available seperately I'll be buying it! Lino rocks!

Ha, great rapping... i'd love to see Greg Mutt perform this, in his great slightly awkward style of transmission! :)

As for the rigging DVD... i'm sure it's more than was shown at Siggraph... did they show this at siggy?

"exporting animation to MDD and importing into CORE, and using the new Autodesk® Geometry Cache tools to export to other 3D applications"

If they did, i missed it... but it may be on those other videos that Newtek put up recently?!

lardbros
08-24-2010, 05:24 AM
... oh, and I don't want to sound like a kiss-***... but Newtek's marketing must have improved 1,000,000% in the past few months... the website is looking lovely... all updated and modern. The actual design is great, and pleases my eyes... even people at work are asking me about the latest newsletter they received. Love it!! Just hope it keeps at this pace, and people may start thinking differently about LW and Newtek?

No they didn't and it sounds like a great addition to the DVD content, anything to help LW'ers to work with the rest of the 3D industry is a bonus.

I'm sorry if I was a bit quick to jump in, I'm just naturally pessimistic when it comes to NewTek's marketing for some reason ;) It was a genuine question though, the MDD and geometry cache stuff sounds good, the rest seemed quite well covered in the siggy demo...mind you, on the surface, Taron's Gnomon DVD is very similar to his LW demo from a couple of years ago but it's still very informative.

Ha, i wasn't having a go... just wondered if it was in the videos. Just watched some of the others that Lino did at siggy and they are brilliant vids... i have a lot to learn about rigging... it's my weakest point... if you don't keep at it, you soon forget everything!

Here's to less pessimism... and more brilliant freebies for us LW'ers!! :)

I wonder if we get a CORE update this week or not?

Anyone???

I'm gagging to hear what has been in development since Siggraph... hope the team are going to surprise me with some awesome-ness after their break following Siggraph!

Anyone seen the LW10 reel from Siggy too? Still dying to see that too!!

Hi guys. Is this available to HC members for DL currently or it is bundled when LW10 is released? Just don't want to find out it was on-line until the 30th or something like that and miss my opportunity :)

We don't have access to it as yet, but we do get it for free if you've joined HC or join before the end of the month.

I'm sure we'll get it soon?!

But cos we haven't got Face Robot Blah,

buying in TAFA.

(its been some time)
for a LW 10 launch.

That's what I've been wondering, is Bullet physics only hard dynamics? Does it cover soft? Fluid?

Is the Sept 30 deadline a deadline to get the free rigging DVD or is it the deadline for getting into Hard Core?



I think the Bullet physics is only hard body dynamics at this point.

Bullet is open source, you can discover that question by yourself.

Is the Sept 30 deadline a deadline to get the free rigging DVD or is it the deadline for getting into Hard Core?It's only the deadline to get the free rigging DVD. Hard Core membership remains open until Lightwave 10 actually ships, then the door is closed. To quote from the Newtek LW10 Q&A blurb:

Will LightWave HardCORE continue?

Yes, however new memberships to LightWave HardCORE will not be granted after LightWave 10 ships. This exclusive membership is only available to people who are members at the time LightWave 10 ships in Q4 2010.

"Purchase LightWave before September 30, 2010, and you’ll save hundreds of dollars..."

http://newtek.com/lightwave/lw10.php

I'm a little dense on this. I've got to make up my mind real soon.
Does 'before 30 September,2010' mean today (29 September) is the last day of purchase in order to get it at $495 + the rigging DVD,

or

is the last day inclusive of tomorrow (30 September, 2010)?

Some announcements says before 30 September, some says by 30 September. These are really two different meanings.

Reason I am asking is I misplaced my dongle while travelling and was hunting frantically to find it and thank god I found it today so I am a little
exasperated to make any decisions today.

lardbros
09-29-2010, 11:04 AM
I'd love to answer you with certainty, but I'm almost certain that if you ordered tomorrow, you'd get the deal too... no point ending a deal like this on the day before the last day of the month, but much more likely to be the day before the first day of the next month :)

Sounds more confusing now I've written it than it sounded in my head!

You are correct, but I'll wager lardbros is on point, EOD tomorrow. I don't really know so I say we keep making it up as we go. :D

That does nothing, call sales I'm sure they can answer.

I got in on the LightWave 10 special offer. When do I get my LightWave 10 Rigging: Revealed DVD?

LightWave 10 Rigging: Revealed DVDs will be available shortly after LightWave 10 ships in Q4, for your purchase made between July 26 and September 30, 2010.



Hmm, tell us please what about this DVD for people who Order Lightwave Core in March 2009, which includes a free one year membership to the HardCORE program - I still waiting since ONE Year !?

Is this DVD also included for this people or have I loose because I was to fast to Order :hey:

Tomorrow, September 30th, is the last day to be eligible to receive the LightWave 10: Rigging Revealed DVD... I'd take advantage of it if I were you!

Here's some examples of Lino's handiwork, just in case you are still on the fence-
