View Full Version : Amsterdam Lightwave Training ! (pictures and short review) !!!

10-04-2003, 08:12 PM
Sorry Lee and Larry there is just time for a small Training review over here, damn it’s already 4:00 am !!! :(

Just need to say the training was great and I really enjoyed it, no I didn’t mean “en joint it,” damn I’m funny :rolleyes: , I really learned a lot.

The 10 h bus ride to Amsterdam really sucked but the training was great and at the end it was really worth the whole efforts.
The training took place in a rented flat in Amsterdam, really private atmosphere, free food and drinks , Lee was equipped with his Laptop and a video beamer, yap that’s all, no private workstations.

Lee showed examples the whole two days (10 am – 6 pm), the examples where great.
Ok I need to admit the examples looked pretty stupid, but you need to figure out the limits in Lightwave on you own projects, after you attended the training !!!
It’s not like, hey lets model a human character in two days, everybody follow me !!!

Go check out these tutorials, the examples where pretty similar.

The pictures are from Jonas (Swedish guy), thanks again !!!

Everybody should attend these trainings, it is great also for advanced Lightwave users, and I will defiantly attend the next European training… :D

Hey, Lee sure looks fat...

There must be a mistake...

10-07-2003, 10:13 PM
Perhaps you could take advantage of all the nice hike and bike trails in Austin.


10-07-2003, 10:34 PM
But I'm never IN Austin!!!

Seriously - no excuse, really - but I have been on the road almost nonstop for the past 2 years or so. I'm rarely in Ausin, but that's changing...

10-07-2003, 11:50 PM
Yes you do seem to be away alot like a rock star on the road. :D

Maybe you start doing video conferencing over the internet.

@ Jörg

I’m from Berlin.
Looks like we need a user meeting over here too.
And BTW where did you get the Newtek gear. :eek:
See ya

@Lee (Lee sure looks fat...)

I think the camera angle is also really unfavorably…:D

10-09-2003, 07:42 AM
Hey, you had my cooking...you can see why I'm fat...

Remember - we are the only LightWave training event that feeds chili to Europeans!!!

You can middle-drag select over the slider or you can
middle-double click on the slider to activate it.

Hehe, I know I'm a smartass. :D

@ Jörg

Looks like the nightshift is a Lightwave syndrome too !!! (2:45 am)

There never was a user meeting over here in Berlin, we need to organize that in the future, a German Lightwave user meeting would be nice Idea too, if you need help.
What’s up in Duisburg, there is not much work here in Berlin.

Hehe, thanks about the shirt offer I really need to get a Lightwave shirt for the next maya user meeting. ;)

10-09-2003, 07:08 PM

hey ich hoffe es macht nichts das ich dir in german zurückschreibe?? muss mich erst wieder einwenig in die englische sache reinarbeiten (lesen eigentlich kein problem aber schreiben da haperts noch)

ja das mit der nachtschicht machen is so ne sachen bin eben erst von der mittagschicht zurück und dann hängt man eben noch 4-8 stunden am rechner!!

wenn du was auf die beine gestellt hast in sachen usermeeting schreib es mir , vieleicht kommen wir dann mit einigen leuten zu euch rüber!!!

dann gib mir mal deine adresse und ich lasse dir so ein shirt zukommen , welche grösse ? weiss oder schwarz?

Great Lee, so the next Lightwave Seminar is in German ???
I’m glad you didn’t mentioned Lederhose or these two infamous “German bad history words” I always heard in Kansas !!! :(

@ Danke Jörg, ist für mich kein Problem mit dem deutsch, und wie du siehst versteht Lee ja auch alles.
Ich denke wir sollten auch den Namen Lee oft erwähnen, so das er dann nächstes Jahr das Seminar auch wirklich auf deutsch halten kann.
Danke für das t-shirt Angebot, Schwarz in Größe M würde mir passen, hehe ich habe halt noch nicht das Lightwave Syndrom.

Meine Adresse ist

Robinson Steinke
Galvanistr. 4
10587 Berlin

Sag mir dann mal deine Kontonummer überweiß dir dann auch das Geld für so ein shirt.
Und sag mir auch mal wegen einem Usermeeting bei euch früh genug bescheid, bevor es eins in Berlin geben soll, muss ich erst mal sehen was ihr da so macht.
Ich erwähne mal lieber noch mal den Namen Lee, hehe.
Und Lee viel spaß bei bable fish. :D

10-09-2003, 08:01 PM

With your Rock-star type travelling status, you could take up heroin. I hear that works pretty good for weight issues. All those dope-head rocker guys are pretty skinny.
Plus I hear you can get some pretty good stuff in Amsterdam and Germany.
You could do LW seminars from the red light districts that we only hear about over here.

I think I read somewhere that these LW training seminars were going to end. IS this true? If so, does that mean that we will not get this for LW8? If these tours do continue, do you plan to be in Seattle again. I caught you there in December last year.

10-22-2003, 07:16 PM

i have read the thread and say yes this is no problem , the date is februar 08-09 is that right?? in my calendar is this a sunday and monday!!! and i think a saturday and sunday is better or not ? the most people here in germany are going on monday to work!
