Greetings fellow 'wavers,

I stumble across a rig for maya (the M word) that constrained a camera to a cinema style camera rig. It had geometry you could turn on and off, dolly track, etc.. Anything like this for LW floating around ?



TIA,

You can very easily make a rig out of nulls. With the right parenting and constraints it should be perfect.

timothy albee put one on the web...- - I think it's sitting at spinquad....

it's a camera parented to a null that turns around like on a dolly.

hope this helps

I thought.. could be wrong.. Someone did a plugin or script to set up that sort of thing?

There is a rig in the book Lightwave 8 1001 tips and tricks. It is a great book. So yes, just set it up with nulls. You your basic logic and make a camera rig scene then load it into Layout from scene. OR start a scene from it. In fact just looked at that link above. I think it was Kurv who had put it into the book, as he is one of the authors so that must be it.
