View Full Version : How do YOU use LightWave?

04-27-2004, 01:19 PM
Just putting together a resume/services page on my Web site and want to know how people can use LW. I've got brain freeze, but here's my list so far:

- 3D architectural renderings
- product packaging
- scene or event re-creation
- previsualization

I'm just looking for basic concepts to help people who don't understand how animation can benefit them. Obviously, any of these can include character animation or something, so I'd like to keep it more generic.

- Visual effects (TV, film, etc)

1- 3D architectural renderings

2- product packaging

3- scene or event re-creation

4- previsualization

5- logo animations

6- 3d animated series and movies (Jimmy newtron, starship troopers etc)

7- content for 3d games

8- visual effects over live footage (smoke, fire, vortex like things, heat distortion)

9- 2d animation (2d animated sequences mapped on planes and move the camera around)

10- 3d matte painting (creating backgrounds for movies or tv)

11- High-res Print graphics (magazine covers, books, posters)

12- real life sculptures from 3d models (http://www.3darttopart.com)

13- build quicktime VR , or VRML or shockwave proyects for the web

I'm sure there are more.. in 12 years using LW I've done most of them.

Hi, all--

Thanks for all the great feedback. Hopefully this will drum up some interest and maybe I'll be able to eek out a living as a freelancer. :rolleyes:
