Looks interesting to check out more of it.

Interesting to find out how he approached Landscaping in Lightwave, but really...donīt a lot of us wish for better landscaping tools in Lightwave future versions:D

I just couldnīt resist mentioning that, throw away skytracer and contact the developer of Ogo Taiki ..rework the interface of it, make a more physicly correct atmosphere model similar to vue spectral skies, boost speed a little and Lightwave could start competing with all those using vue for matte paintings etc.

Lighwave would need some terrain generators and vegetation tools too thou.

Otherwise the VPR is a good start where you can watch most volumetrics for tweaking the scene..similar to vueīs previewer.

Implementing true world tools would really start to result in the most amazing stuff showing up in Lightwave...never seen before, I just know it.
Sorry going a little of topic here.

It would be fine to see new (animated) images of this shortfilm. The teaser is amazing but too short :) ...ahemmm, and old

When I first clicked on the trailer it immediately reminded me of Dan Mass' Mars Rover landing done back in LW5.6.

lol! Its only 4 and a half minutes - showing any more then this would probably be like just showing you most the movie. :hey:

I see you're in Spain. Its actually playing in Spain at Valladolid - If you're close to this(?), perhaps go and check it out (and catch up with the artist). :thumbsup:
