View Full Version : inexpensive stock figures/canned animations

Recently I've been working on a small project for a client using Flash. Nothing very exciting, but the client gave me two 2D walk cycles to work with.

I was told that the walk cycles originated from poser.

I would have liked to replace the walk cycles if I'd had the choice and it made me think that for a quick and dirty little project, Lightwave would have been useless to me.

I don't really use poser (presumably it has canned animations available - I know it has plenty of models), but it made me think that here I am with the upmarket (compared to poser) lightwave but it can't help me here with this tiny project.

Are there any inexpensive libraries of models/canned motions for Lightwave? Everything I've seen has been pretty expensive, making buying poser for a very rough small project the way to go.

... Simple reason being that .lws isn't a versatile format.

That's why everyone is so anxious about the new fbx exporter.

You can buy very cheap fbx animations like 5-600 frame cycles for $20. Mostly game characters but they haven't been so LW compatible.

Try poking about here:
