Perhaps I'm peranoid of just insane either way, but I'm planning out how I want to do my project, and I keep thinking about some cell shaded works and out pops SD Gundum! Is it possible thourh carefull structure planning and an eye with animation to get something close with lightwave to somthing like Trigun, or even older, Astro Boy, or how about Ninja Scroll?

Also, how much of "Voices from a Distant Star" was done with lightwave?

I m just delving into the world of celshading myself for use in design work but apparently Lightwave 3d was the only 3d package used in the creation of 'a single voice-voices of a distant star'...you will like this link

In short...truley amazing! Now I really want to buy that Movie now. Another well put together lightwave master piece. I see now the capabilities of Lightwave as an Anime product. (Excited! lol) Thanks man, it was well worth the watch, as well as the trailer :D

yeah me too love the trailer, I can't wait to see it as well.check out this link as well it supposedly was animated in lw 8 so I heard through the grapevine


it's not anime but it is animated check out the teasers section then the teasers for 'La Storia di Leo' I just thought the animation was top notch...the movements were really fluid and real...they made the whole movie in LW
