... is there a way to create sliders that move a hand from an open shape to a fist shape?

The next step of course is a slider for the bones each finger. I figured out the heirarchy and bones and can do it manually, but I'm looking for a faster way to control hands.

This is from Proton's tutorial series it may be of some help.

You could try Motion Mixer. I have never tried this part of lightwave before so I can't really tell you anything about it. Another way is to use expressions. I have done some sliders using simple expressions that involve creating a master channel. Not sure if you can chain master channels together to control a fist. Good luck.
