http://www.digitaltutors.com/tutorial/2280-Creating-an-Arch-Viz-Scene-with-LWCad-in-LightWave-3DHey guys, just wanted to let you know that after many months of work my second tutorial for Digital Tutors is up. This one is an arch viz scene done with LightWave and LWCad 4.51. Aalso included is a bit on using Denis Pontonnier's DP Verdure plugin to make some trees and bushes. Of course DT is a pay site but it is 5 hours long and if anyone is really interested in watching the whole thing I have a couple of invites I can give out to watch it for free. I would rather those go to people who really want to watch it all though since I only have 3 and don't want them to be wasted. Check it out at the link below, the first video is a preview for anyone to see.


Digital Tutors also made a preview video of it on Vimeo:

Dear Phil, this was a great news. I am so happy this is going to happen.

Please consider me as one of those 3 luckiest individuals on this planet by reading this epic post lol.

Oops I don't have LWCAD so I am not qualified. anyway thanks so much for giving such a good news and promoting our lovely software Phil.

Yeah sorry about that but LWCad is used throughout almost all of the tutorial. I do have another tutorial on helicopter modeling that does not use any third party plugins if you're interested. I don't know what level you're at but these are both fairly advanced tutorials. The other one is here.

Congratulations, and I love that grass!

Thanks, unfortunately the grass in this pic was not actually part of the tutorial, they Photoshopped that in over top of the real grass, which kind of bothers me since people aren't actually getting the same thing they see in the cover image. Plus they actually asked me to add some rocks at the water's edge so I spent a lot of time 3D scanning some rocks, included them in the tutorial, and included the files, but they're now gone in the image.

Thank you for creating the tutorial.

This looks great and I'd love to try the tutorial for free. I still have trouble getting LWCAD to do what I want and I've been considering DT for some time. If you have extras, please consider me. Thanks

Congrats Phil. Would be great to showcase the applink for 3dcoat and lightwave.
3dcoat also needs some presence at DT.
