Welcome to the Newtek Family.

Thanks to you all for welcoming me.

In answer to gjjackson question, no I'm not completely new to Lightwave. My job has kinda turned 3D, so I'm now using my hobbies skills as a way of making money. Its really kool!

North West UK,
Welcome on board! :D
How long ya been into 3D / LW?

04-29-2004, 04:20 AM
Hey There.
I acually started off learning 2D animation and a few years ago I realised the industry was heading towards 3D so while at uni, I switched to 3D. But I love both 2D and 3D.

How about yourself?

Chiming in...

Hi Emma, and welcome!

Been 'playing' with 3D for a couple of years, amongst my other hobbies. ;)
Started with freeware Povray and when I lost my job, used my rendundancy to buy myself Lightwave. Figured, may as well get something positive out of it. :D

Babylon5 was the whole reason I got into 3D. When I saw Dean Scotts B5 model, it just seemed so cool.

Who knows, maybe one day, I may even get good at it. ;)

Hi Emma.. have you got any images to show us? Stuff you've created.. so we can get an idea of your style..

04-29-2004, 05:54 AM

I've not got anything that I'm proud of to post up yet. But I have nearly finished a 3D model of a mountain bike that I will post up.

I do have some illustration of some marvel characters that I will be turning 3D.

You will love this community.

04-29-2004, 09:46 AM
Hey there.

Thanks for the welcome, yeah, I'm already starting to love in here, I'm noting getting any work done.

04-29-2004, 11:53 PM
lol .. who needs work anyway.. :)

Hi Emma,

welcome to the LW community!

I'm new here too, just started with LW and hope to model some nice stuff soon.

3D is just my world....wonderful stuff around, checkout also the European Newtek site with many Artists interviews & sample works - it's great!



04-30-2004, 06:33 AM
Interesting, when I was new here I don't remember having this many replies! :)

04-30-2004, 07:02 AM
I think its cos its a girl.. all the boys are getting excited! ;)

04-30-2004, 07:06 AM
Hey Matt!

Welcome to you too! :D

Well, you are already here for more than a year, what do you think, is the LW community growing bigger or being stable?

What about your LW Interface Project?
I just visited your site few days ago and I like it. Any news from Newtek according your idea?


04-30-2004, 07:11 AM
Hurben - that's what I was gettin' at! ;) Well at least the heat is off Irene for a while! :D

sleiron - It goes from strength to strength , new users appearing all the time, although this year saw Lee Stranahan leaving the scene, which is big loss and shame, but he had good reasons (more time with his family)

Regarding the interface stuff, no, but they know where I am :)

Hey Hurben, love the design of your website, very nice indeed! :)

04-30-2004, 07:26 AM
haha! thanks matt.. I haven't updated it since July last year, I've been too busy with paid work to have time..

I designed another website, I think you'll like the design: ololo productions (http://www.ololo.info/)

These forums can be a source of sustenance when you're out of inspiration.. they can be the only response you get from random images you create.. and they can be a battleground as well (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2025) lifting you in and out of praise and humiliation. But beyond all that.. it is a family, and I keep coming back.


04-30-2004, 07:32 AM
Very nice!

Oh man, I forgot about that guy, what a plonk! He ripped me about the work I did for the interface stuff too, said I was "killing the LightWave Interface" if I remember rightly! :)

04-30-2004, 07:41 AM
hehe.. he came back as Finger! And had that weird image with the hand and the ambulance icon :D

He's probably still around posing with another name.. and keeping his cool..

I've wondered who Newtek actually has doing their interface design. Many times companies will have certain people where that's their only job, designing the UI. I'm not certain whether Newtek does that or just has coders doing design and coding. The programming that I've done, doing the interface is really difficult for me. My UI's are generally not that great, more geared to functionality. I would like to see Newtek adopt some of Matt's design. They not only have good user function but look pretty nice. The design seems to have a feel of enjoyment. LW's interface works good just seems more technical and leaves you with the sense of doing work. Maybe it has to do with just being new and different, don't know, but I still prefer Matt's.

Also, since I've used Blender in the past there are aspects to it that I rather like. E.g. the ability to drag the area of buttons off the screen and the ability to rescale the size of those buttons. When doing a certain operation it would bring up a whole new set of buttons at the bottom that is particular to the work being done. For instance if you're doing texturing (the Surface editor), instead of opening another window a completely new set of buttons comes up at the bottom window (the button area) that pertains to that. I for one kind of prefer that instead of all the popup windows. Maybe it's just because I started with blender and that's the reason for preference.
