Hello, I was using lw 8.5 until jump into 11.6. I have looked at the inline help(LW 10 manual (sigh)) but there's no pivot point tool in Modeler under View>Pivot point menu
:question: where is the pivot point tool?

Pivot tools are located under the layers tab/Pivot

many many thanks Promotheus.

Why did they put an outdated manual?

Ask them:)

Just guessing, itīs a huge undertaking which I think they neglected some time before,priority was probably focused on core and then later on all other changes, thus every update of lightwave with new features and changes has been stacking up and arent covered enough...the documentation is one of the parts that needs a lot of overhaul work.

You could forward suggestions or remarks to beevee, who is responsible for the lightwave documentation... maybe, either they arenīt aware of it, or they are working on some other segments of covering documentations..thereīs always gaps to fill.

Pivot tool rocks, i'm using it alot in my modeling workflow. Maybe someone would make a decent video tutorial on it. I would do it but my verbal english skill is mutch worse then writing.

You could just use google translate, if you write in english, check the spelling, then just use the same english to english, and then play the soundfile, if you have a decent soundcard you should be able to record the translated word and
use in you video.

Hereīs a simple correction of your text, I hope it is right to some degree:)

am I not a pain in the..(your english of choice) :)

hereīs a voice simulator, just enter text and voice and language, you could record the sound to the harddrive, if you set your soundcard to record the sound correctly from the right source...

i used to use these tricks, but the new LightWave 11.5 Translate tool makes them mostly redundant (fortunately) http://erikalstad.com/backup/misc.php_files/smile.gif

Thanks Erikals, Love your tutorials and contribution for the lw community. Also thanks prometheus on the tip "google translate english to english". I dont think the lw forum readers would bother that I'm using not so correct spelling, as long as they understand what I want to tell. But the tip is extremely usefull when i want to setup a personal portfolio site. Who knows, i may attend some english classes in the future. But my main focus this time is to catch up where i left using lightwave and hopfully advance a lot in a very short time.

thanks, i am glad to see they are of use to LightWavers http://erikalstad.com/backup/misc.php_files/smile.gif

your English is quite good, didn't know about Google's "English to English" but don't worry about it.

i cheat a bit, as Firefox seems to have some kind of auto-correct function... http://erikalstad.com/backup/misc.php_files/047.gif
