Hello guys,

Anyone tried this already? connecting the PS Move to Lightwave Virtual Studio?

I was looking at the configs, and it seems you have to connect your lightwave to your ps3 and then look for controlers.

But I put the ip, enable the controlers, but it doesn't show any result.

Any advice?

Thanks!

So, apparently you have to buy a "game" on psn called Move.Me, that is an app that allows external connection to your ps move.

I did a few tests here and it works great

I'll post my results and findings here if anyone interested!

Thanks!

That would be fun to see! I got myself a psMove but got no PS3 (Bummer),
i got the ps move in Usb to light on any color i want from LW usin H.I.D motion controler.
Newtek did not mention the need for a PS3 wich they should have.
Ill look into "Motion Joy" hack to run it without PS3 server.

Cheers

Psmove .

Anyone got results ??

I'd be interested to know too. I'm certainly not going to give Sony €300 to buy a PS3 I don't want, but I'd part with €25 (plus the camera if necessary).

And it looks like you can use any USB gamepad like the xbox 360 gamepad to control virtual studio. One joystick to control rotation and the other one to control zoom and focus. And you can assign the buttons for other functions.

Thank you for the links! Trying to make my PS3 move work with LW camera.
It's once again one of those exciting features that come barely documented and not targeted toward the one person studio / hobbyist end users. Too bad...

Is there a way to connect Wiimotes to LW11?

I know you can connect a Wiimote to a Linux system very easy and it works like a charm. No idea if that works on Windows though.

On Ubuntu Linux all you need is Bluetooth (adapter if not built in) and simply run Sudo apt-get install wmgui && wminput.

Then connect your Wiimote with wminput to your Computer and your good to go.

Is something like that possible with LW11?

You really need a PS3? Oh god that's ridiculous. I was really hoping to use the psmove in the future but at 300$, it's a lot less tempting.

Yes.

You need the PS3 and the Move.Me software from Sony. The setup instructions are in the LightWave 11 Manual Addendum (lightwave3d_11_0_3_addendum-screen-7-28-2012.pdf) available on your account page at lightwave3d.com

The move.me app to download on your PS3 from Sony is around 100 bucks... .sigh. Wish it were free!
