I feel stupid for asking, but how is the onionskin effect here done? I honestly cannot find mention of this in the manual..

it either a custom lscript or a commercial plugin of some sort.i remember somenone asking about onion skinning ges back and there is that cpability but it's not native to lihtwave 7.5 or 8.0.....of course not sure if lw9.0 will/has his already..very usefull...if it does!

Dunno if it's my imagination but for the last few issues of 3D World there's barely a mention of Lightwave. There's been the NewTek's publicity article, but it feels as though Lightwave's being shunned. I'm seriously rethinking my subscription, but are there any other 3D mags out there that are worth getting?

BUT the only problem is that the guys website isn't SFW by far (he does adult anime)... I'll go home and check my bookmarks.

I know what you mean... I haven't bought this mag in months - I used to love it but the multitude of "how to do this or that in Maya or Max" just doesn't appeal... it seems even Poser gets more coverage than LW.

That said, I was going to buy last month's edition because it covered human anatomy modelling - but my local WHSmith's didn't have it :devil: - was this any good?

As for other mags, there is one run by Dan Ablan isn't there?

issue 75 of 3dworld 'body work' .. was decent.. yeah, especially to new comers, trying to learn more on the human form, and anatomy etc..
The mag does have its usual coverage on other apps, but it does have its own fair share of lw content to. Sometimes more so than normal, or.. frustratingly... vice versa. This can be in the form of lw work submitted into the gallery sections, or tutorials etc.. and sometimes 10/10 reviews ? ;)
Sometimes though the tuts based on other software, can still apply to lw. they might give you different insights on how to do some stuff..

i especially like the projects round up pages.. (basically alittle coverage on the latest tv ads and vfx having been finished in the last month or so ) ..

A thing that always bothered me though, is the lack of lightwave advertising in the mag. even cinema4d has a regular full colour advertisment on its software..

don't forget... if you have any lw work... send it into 3dworld.. heh
(yeah i know, im one to talk.. )

Yeah, we really need to get more content on their gallery pages. It seems to be all max and c4d in those sections.

Just as soon as I crate an image I'm happy enough with! Most of my stuff is so corporate I just couldn't bring myself to put it there!

There's a project for us all to enhance Lightwave's presence! A contest - the first to get a submission into their pages wins a free pint ;)

Maybe this should be the next Spinquad challange, to send as much Lightwave work as possible to the 3dworld gallery. Maybe we can make a difference. :)

Oh it must make a difference when people see images and what they're created in :) Sounds like a plan! I have a few days spare at the moment so I may have a go at an image I've wanted to do for a while :D

What's over there that's good and can be sent by post?

Man, if I ever went to the UK, I think I'd drink till I went blind.

I don't think you should drink methanol, just beer. :)
