Hello dear friends!

Today TrueArt would like to show you quick overview video with true real-time patching capabilities found in upcoming EasySpline.. It's achived by using new great LightWave v8.0 feature - Polygon Handlers..

Watch video from secondary fast server:

In wireframe mode you will be able to switch on/off display from any view port you wish, in example video display is enabled only to perspective view ports, which is what you want most the time, because otherwise curve points are hidden by a lot of geometry and lines and harder to find and modify.. We will try to add special feature to highlight them and make easier to use, even when view port is displaying wireframes..

More informations and pre-ordering EasySpline v1.0:
http://easyspline.trueart.pl

EasySpline users that pre-ordered already are welcome to purchase VirtualMirror v2.0 to use full integration between these two great tools to show spline models mirrored in oposite X axis in real-time while they're patched (unfortunately VirtualMirror v1.0 is not sufficient)..

(videos showing how they co-operate will come soon in another thread)

Best Regards!

It's about time someone brought this to Lightwave. I've only been making feature requests for it for the last few years.... Looks excellent!

all very cool but i still wanna see some of the other tools like the spline extend and extrude seeing it work with multiple patches at once etc

If you do anymore videos it would be nice to see you using your plugin with a background image while working with a spline patch.:lwicon:

Complete tutorials how to model something from a to z will come later..

Playing with EasySpline patch and 1024 sub-patches for a while in perspective view port could be fun...

now this is impressive:) usee u can do interactive spline deform of cage:)
also is it possyble to edit and deform spline if u drop tool? kind of if u can save buffer

than i have one more
when we will be able to order and how much wil it cost.. and and will there be chance to avoid paypal since i am not listed in country of paypalers.

Splines could be edited by anything f.e. Drag Tool, Split Tool, even tools that don't exist currently but will be made in future.. And at the same time wireframe and textured surface could be displayed..

Basically you don't have tool activation and tool dropping states, because Polygon Handlers could be always available in the layer analizing it contents..

It's not like in EasySpline video #1 where EasySpline_FreezeSpline was presented, and hot-key was refreshing geometry.. Polygon Handlers are working parallel to the rest of interactive tools.. In the boat video there are even two independent Polygon Handlers active: EasySpline and VirtualMirror and they co-operate..

EasySpline v1.0 full version is for 75 USD.



and and will there be chance to avoid paypal since i am not listed in country of paypalers.

We're offering quite a lot of different payment options. Please take a look at following pages and choose right payment method for you:

Some people were interested in how EasySpline will treat triangle patches.. Currently following triangle dividing algorithms will be supported:

If you have idea for other algorithms please write!
