Hi there,

Is there any good tutorial (free or commercial) on rigging any animal (cat, dog, wolf, lion etc.) using Genoma? I bought two tutorials one from Dan Ablan (Up to Speed LW11.5) and a dog rigging tutorial from Adam Gibson but I am sorry to say both are not upto any good standard.. not even close to professional level.

There should be some animal rigging tutorials with Genoma and even better if someone could accept the challenge of making hair and fur for the animal too in the tutorial.

I wish someone from newtek officialy take this request and make or sponsor somone to make complate animal rigging tutorial complete with genoma setup, weight mapping, hair and fur.
Tools are there in lightwave then why not show us how to properly use them in a proffesional manner.

Thanks and best wishes.

SF.

awesome! thanks for the info, I'll definitely buy this :)
looking at the promo i feel that i wasted money on the other two videos i bought! Dan Ablan also rigged the same Giraffe in his video but seems like he didn't have enough time to explain the whole process!

Sorry, but i also suggest as advanced stuff to use in Tutorials more production related figures. It is quit more difficult to animate with weightmaps, deformation and realistic movements as this simple non realism fake character and animals....
