Man, those look like rigs built for engineers, not animators. Extremely complex and non-intuitive.

Ya those are way to complex for my liking but impressive in thier complexity at the same time showing that very similair rigging can be accomplished in both Lightwave and Maya with some effort.

but I see little difference between the two rigs , maya's IK is smoother and stretchy , but anyway Lightwave can do what maya does

Lightwave can do some things that Maya can

This settles it then....

Maya has bigger tits.

Lightwave has sexier hips.

Yes, it just depends on whether your a breast man or a butt man. Me, I'm all about the hips.

that rig is pretty basic, I can't imagen a Maya user looking at that with any excitement...


the spine is the only bit LW'ers may not have seen ??

there is SO much more to rigging in 2006 then that

Newtek need top focus on this level
