feature request...add mimic pro into lw core...
seeing as daz is having a promo [$1.99] i just wonder if newtek would think of adding a lipsync plugin such as mimic pro into lightwave core so that as people are requesting better character animationtool they get mimic builtinto lightwave 9.2 or 9.5

n yeah i bought the plugin..tis great...:thumbsup:

...daz is having a promo [$1.99]...
I'm assuming this is a typo? The website shows Mimic Pro at $199.95, Mimic Pro for Lightwave at $299.95, and the main page's headline only features Victoria 4.0. And the Promotions page shows nothing of the $1.99 mimic pro... 'Cause if that's not a typo - heck, I can find that in the sofa!

It was on sale to platinum members for 1.99 yesterday, might have stopped the sale since....

Man, I gotta start reading thier e-mails, or any e-mails.
Just checked mine and had 700 so just deleted everything. :(

I took advantage of the sale and Got Mimic For LW! I get emails from DAZ every week and have gotten some very sweet deals. I pay monthly for the Platinum Club and don't regret it. Would be nice to have it inteegrated - not sure if DAZ would consider it though even if approached by NT.

Some old DAZ plugins for LW, morph-related, were sold to NewTek and are now part of LW - check the credits in the manual against the credits for D|S, if you have it. Of course those were free plugins for content creators rather than an application like Mimic so it's not much of a precedent.

A feature request for Mimic might be a nice thing to have in LW, but i've tried TAFA by Mac Reiter and Tim Albee and it knocks the socks off anything i've used before... so if Newtek could make TAFA at the core of Lightwave, we'd be laughing for anything lipsync-ish!!

Aye, I know someone who helped with Tafa and they speak very highly of it.

Simple truth is, we just need a durned cool new engine in LW for animation / CA / Lipsync. I know Newtek are listening, lets hope the yhave the time and manpower to bring about something we can be happy with. :)
