When is Newtek going to release the official 'Proton Training Pack'? I'd buy in a hearbeat. He's the yoda of lightwave, without the backwards fortune cookie speak.

Keep 'em coming!

Thanks Proton for these great videos !

@mobilesurge: yes he doesn't do the backwards fortune cookie speak, but he always types 'teh' instead of 'the' :p Each Jedi Master has his own particuliar thing ;)

@caesar: Hey that's funny, we've almost written the same thing :D

@Proton: Can't wait for the next videos, you totally rock (I even began to love Motion Mixer, can you believe that??? :D )

hmm just thinking about the videos... each one is focused on one tool, which is great, but I noticed something : when I watch one of these video, say the one about MM, then I usually like to experiment so I can see how what I've learnt can be used in a different context, for instance, in a project where I used workarounds instead of teh :D "right way", But sometimes I get stuck because I have a hard time making the right choice. What I mean is that I'd love to see tutorials project oriented , you know like "a guy walks, picks up an object and give it to another guy" which might implies expressions, dynamic parenting, and the tools involved . I think it would interesting to see how the tools can be combinated to get this done. I think this would help a lot to understand how they can accomplish miracles with the tools they have

I know that kind of tutorials already exists, but I thought NT should show that LW isn't a gathering of plugins that don't work together

my two cents :rolleyes:
