hi guys

im primarily a softimage user surfacing lighting and rendering in either mental ray or arnold.
ive recently hopped onto lightwave for my work at home. im a little dismayed at the lack of top end / professional training available.
even dave school who i remember years ago were famous for lightwave training, dont use LW anymore .
alot of tuts for lightwave a home users / hobbyist users and then there are a few sites with good training but i am looking for the cream of the crop.

there seems to be hardly any mention of tuts or instruction on really hardcore production style lighting , surfacing and rendering !!!!!!! why ????
i would like to hear from the people at zoic , embassy , pixomondo , the new battlestar galactica crew , the fx guys on iron sky and all the other high end proffesional
users of lightwave for production. is there anyone from this background with instruction on production rendering ?

i know how to get top end results from mental ray and arnold but am struggleing to iron out kinks in setup and rendering through lightwave....

anyone ???????

Practical Production Techniques Vol. Three: Continuing on in this series of videos, award winning VFX artist Kelly "Kat" Myers walks you through several handy concepts battle tested on productions that you can take advantage of in Practical Production Techniques Vol. 3. In this video learn about "Light Boards", Light Cookies or "Gobos" and how to link up controllers to give you control over just about any aspect you can think of in LightWave's Lighting system and be able to expand on these concepts to just about anything that can be controlled via an envelope. At a run-time of 110 Minutes in 7 parts at a glorious 1920x1200 display resolution this video gives you the low down on time saving techniques and ultra simple but elegant ways of controlling light arrays from just a few lights to literally hundreds if not thousands. Example Scenes are included!

If its some of the tech details of the software ur after, as opposed to more general lighting stuff (which obv doesnt differ much from app to app) have a peek at these fellas... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgNB9tZWUmM http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0YFZ2av-BLg
