Just working through the rigging revealed videos

He has all his model elements as separate objects rather than layers is that for any reason or just personal preference?

Thanks

I was wondering about that too.

I guess on complex models it speeds up opening various elements to edit weight maps etc, maybe less chance of messing up something . . . ? but only guessing

I'm not sure if there's a technical reason but sometimes it's a workflow issue. For example, if you know you're going to have the same body but different eye variations you probably just want the eyes as a separate lwo. No sense in having duplicates of the body file on your system.

It makes sense. I know there are many times where I have different "versions" of the same object on different layers and I don't necessarily want to send them all to layout.

In the tutorials - I may well have missed this as there a lot to take in, and I tend to do it late :-) - but lino mirrors the bone hierarchy with Mirror BT and indicates he will later delete it, did he do this? and whats Mirror versus BT Mirror?

"Mirror Hierarchy" runs on any mix of objects, bones, and I assume lights and cameras. "BT_MirrorHierarchy" only runs on bones and has to be ran from a selected bone.

Is it still possible to get the rigging revealed videos?

Yes, I think they sell it in the new Lightwave store. Check the website.

I have looked but don't see it. Perhaps I am looking in the wrong place?

If it's not in the store, then I think they said they're going to be adding it to the store soon. Rob mentioned that at SIGGRAPH.

I still don't see it in the store. Anyone know how I can get a copy of the Rigging Revealed DVD?

That is what I expected. I am excited to see that it is now available from the store section of the Newtek website.
