LW can't handle character animation......


Trade publication Millimeter calls Food Fight "one of the most complex digitally animated feature films ever produced," with 138 main characters, 6,254 secondary characters and 174 sets. Kasanoff says it is 14 to 18 months from completion.

I think I read in another article that they're using a Lightwave / Maya pipeline. Although they did use Lightwave for character animation on their Hershey 3d ride. I was looking around for their website to find out more about their Food Fight movie but haven't found it yet.

Are you sure they aren't using LW for modeling and Maya for CA?

I understand that Thresehold also recently completed another huge ride film that you'll be hearing about this fall - LightWave and Digital Fusion.

I just talked to a friend who worked there (not my brother) and he said Foodfight was LightWave and Messiah, but they dropped Messiah from the pipeline. Nothing major in Maya, he said.

Lightwave project lists that mentioned food fight…


But everybody knows that Lightwave is used for great character animation as well, sure it’s not toooooooooo fast, but it works great.

and with Lightwave 8 will be used more and more for that kind of work, at least that’s what I hope :D
