Hi all
Please take a look of this site http://jackdahon.net/Works_animation.htm
70% of works done in lightwave.
Especially the animation :Reverie.

some very good and funy ideas in your animations! Congratulations!
And it's so nice to watch 3d animations without any spaceships battle and evils aliens ;)

I liked the concept too. I love the part where she runs down the corridor, and when he tries to follow her, he hits a wall. Was it rendered in multiple parts (wall/no wall) and composited together or was it done with smart camera positioning, lighting, etc? The same goes for other trick parts. The jump from the bell tower was nicely done too, although I think he spent just a few seconds too long hesitating to jump (from viewer's point of view, not his :) ).

yes. actually all the tricks I did here is 90% all render in lightwave
one time. No compositing at all .

I really like the piece. It has a nice dream-like quality. I agree with mips, it's nice to see an animation with no space ships or aliens. The animation is rather floaty (spliney), there were a couple of times when the character's feet don't stay planted on the ground when he walks, and I think the edit could be tightened (some of the shots are kind of long). But hey, these are minor issues in an otherwise nice movie.

Thanks for sharing it with us. Great job!!!:D

Hi . thank you for reply , Trawler . There indeed have problem
with the character's foot doesn't not touch the ground.
but acutally , the problem is not in the character it's self.
it's in his shadow. I think my lightwave files got some problem
cause the files is working in a win system with virus. the
character's foot actually touched the ground perfectly. When I do
the final render, the shadow offset .
I also got problem when render with the long hair . Actually I did
it with sasquatch. and you know , it is too heavy render and it
crash my whole win2000 system . I reinstall the system again
then finished this animation. it's wired though.
