Great video. But what I would really like to know is how you make that time-lapse reveal. Is it a trick or is it an actual recording of him working sped up?

It's a recording of the stages with a snapshot at given intervals I'd reckon.

I've just tweeted the link as I thought it was excellent. Especially like the post stuff. Nice work Chris. Keep em coming.

Nick, google a free bit of software called 'chronolapse'. You decide when to take a snapshot of your desktop and it combines them all into a timelapse sequence. Here's one I did, I think they were taken every 5 secs with this one: http://rsldesigns.co.uk/2011/09/45-min-time-lapse-chainsaw-in-lightwave-10-1/

Ah ok, I thought there was a fancy trick in LW that I didn't know about. ;D

Thanks guys, glad you like the little video. As Colkai suspected, it's just screenshots of the model at various stages. The video was an afterthought, so I just loaded up each interim version of the model, and stepped through the layers. Some of the sections I had to recreate in reverse by "un-building" it, deleting polygons, taking a screenshot, deleting more, taking a screenshot, etc. So, it's only a general picture of how it was built, as opposed to a true time-lapse build, but still fun to watch.

Thanks for that!

No probs, you can also point it at a directory full of images and tell it to make a video from them, allowing you to use the same method as Chris, or edit images in post before processing to vid.

Cheers.
