saw it, but didn't find it all that for lip-sync

seems to be better for muscle-sims...

I think the muscle features are just a bonus of this 300usd lipsync plugin for maya. Looks impressive if its easy to setup. No complex nodes, no complex bone rigging, expressions, etc. Not sure how it works but pretty good for a test.

JoE's a Great Plug In Man,I have still got Lightwave Shave & Hair Dongle (Sigh.)

I wish that Mr.Powers could get him to Re Re port- it back for Lightwave.

HiS Joysticking of EndoMorphs was a First on Lightwave,but he got bent up

& Chewed by the old Gang in NT

Surely its Time for a Parely? Joe? Hello?

likewise, i read that Joe chewed the C4D hair plugin he made and C4D users weren't happy about it.
so, well, nobody is perfect i guess... :O

Yep Erikals,

(sigh) gone the 'Flay' days of surfing soo many pluggies for lightwave.
It seems plug ins are not looked after, or wanted,or jealousy sets in?
Or any of that scenario.
Third party should be lifted up with TLC on this new portal.
And a Japanese Translator should be employed for all those lovely plugins.
You can visit the troops ,but you gotta spread some fertilzer some time!

Same with Tutorial DVD's thirdy party,they should be updated on this Portal
Why do I get the feeling the portal is like drying paint, always behind ?
It should be the driver- not the passenger!

you do use the www.lwplugindb.com ? right..?

i'm quite happy with LightWave these days actually...
RealFlow option, Genoma, stronger modeler tools, LWCad, TAFA, great renderer (compared to Mental Ray at least)
much more...

though yep, would like to see improvements here and there...

i think great muscle sim is already possible in LightWave... but ain't got the time to test it... :[
(using a mix of B-softbodies and animated UV endomorphs)

Chris Jones has also tested face anim a bit with great results, (using other methods) and is still testing (just wrote him couple of days ago..)
