View Full Version : what area do you use LW for? (v3)

10-13-2015, 06:33 PM
new poll...

...remember you can use multiple votes.

Hmm... TV should have a "Rendering" option...

Game of Thrones is, pretty much, Max+Vray, while shows like The Walking Dead has a mixture of rendering, LW included (both these shows are film quality VFX if you ask me). Terra Nova was a mixed pipeline where most things were rendered out of LW, but multiple apps were used all over the place.

yes, in the end i just had to leave it, as max options is 18

one could maybe check "Film -rendering" if the TV show is of high quality

10-13-2015, 07:46 PM
You should have left one of those options as none of above.

10-13-2015, 08:18 PM
though i'm sure others will chime in saying i should have... [insert text here]

this will be forever an imperfect poll.

Engineering is missing.


10-14-2015, 03:17 AM
yep, maybe use >

"for Visualization of our company products"

10-14-2015, 06:43 AM
ebooks, web TV - venuse rises VFX, product viz...

so chose 'print' although it's not 'PRINTED'
so chose web and TV...
so chose product viz

yeh ..'other' would have maybe helped.

problem with "other" is that it's such a wide term

Next poll: What are you using more? Modeler or Layout.

...the hub mostly :)

Can you add an option for Hobbyist?

10-14-2015, 03:51 PM
yes, in the end i just had to leave it, as max options is 18

Ok... I've counted these six times (espresso hasn't kicked in yet) :) and there's 17? I'll go count one more time.

Poll results show pretty much what I'd expect... lots of us are multi-tasking generalists :)

I've been playing with lightwave since 1995 or 1996. Looking at the list, I could say I've used it for all of those at one time or another. You left out for building assets to sell, lots of model sites with lightwave stuff on them

10-15-2015, 01:46 AM
That would be "Visualization (production) of Our Company Products".

10-15-2015, 03:31 AM
Traditionally, I've been using LightWave in film and television for all areas of cg and vfx production, but lately I've been using it for toy prototyping on a 3D printer too. Not sure where that fits in the poll.

I guess maybe visualization? But that seems like a much broader category than 3D printing.

10-15-2015, 04:09 AM
in this poll it would be visualization

yep, a bit broad term, i should've split visualization and added engineering

next time maybe
