Hello Lightwavers,
I would like to ask for opinions on what would be a good workflow to do set design visualization for television and perhaps live event staging.

I would need to go out to print elements like front elevations, etc. for construction after designs are approved but would like to animate previz in Lightwave.

Do I need to work in a CAD program and import into LW just for the actual animations? Then printing out the diagrams from the "blueprints" from the CAD program?

Thanks for any info!

Lightwave's drafting and CAD tools are pretty poor. A good solution might be to model in Form Z (which is much better at this sort of thing and exports well to Lightwave) and do your animations in Lightwave.
