This is just a short teaser about one of the new features in LW8 - just to get your mind whirring a bit....

You'll have to wait for SIGGRAPH to answers to some of your questions - come to the party on Monday and see for yourself...

Wha!? Right-click an item and get context sensitive-ish pop-up box?

De-freakin'-licious.

I really can't wait now.http://digitalweapon.net/2.gif

Mmm. Good tease. Yes, you've got me wondering what the implications of dynamics on IK joints means. Anyone care to take educated guesses (based on something similar that might exist in another package maybe?).

Chris,

I use Camtasia - it's really great.

I'd have to say the dynamic stuff is for doing thigns like ropes, hair etc .. move the parent and the children react dynamically. Sounds like it's connected to the hard/soft body dynamics to .. maybe ..

Very cool! I feel a pool of saliva forming in my mouth getting ready to spill out into a steady stream of drool...

OK. That's pretty cool. I was preparing for the worst but my expectations are beginning to creep up again. Thanks Lee.

Fez meet LeBron.....

Or meet a small part of LeBron. Like his ankle.

(this only make sense if you read all the threads...)

"Fez meet LeBron....."

Lol, Lee! Cool. I'm definitely in if the latest Layout can dunk like Lebron.

Oh I hope so Lee. Since I didn't plan on actually being able to go down, driving won't be viable for time restrictions (as much as I'd LOVE to cruise down the pacific coast!). However, I'm plotting as I type. Tomorrow morning I'll be seeing if I can't just attend (fly down) on company budget. They might not like the short notice, but I can be pretty convincing... :rolleyes:

OT: Camtasia is a great program, you can even bring the video into any NLE and edit it. Very flexible video format.
