just a small relativity poll,
i wonder, how much have ppl used it?

so, here we go....

never used it, not even sure exactly 'what' it offers!

It's one of those things in Lightwave I always wanted to play around with to see what it could do but I haven't had the time to check it out yet like so many other features in Lightwave.

I have never used it but everything I had seen about it looked to save time in animating. Example: Complex undercarriage of an aircraft raising/lowering - motions/timing - tied to flaps et all could be fixed to a null - same results every time or made variable. Unfortunately I think the docs explained what it did vs. giving detailed examples showing how to do it. It's been forever since I looked..

yeah, i'd like to see what's possible....
btw, take a look at ikboost.com and these,

might help u, or never the less, interesting videos...

also have a look at Proton's cyclist video,

Hi,
Yes! I used it and I like it a lot. It's surprisingly stable and ideal for leader-follower type animations like overlapping, delayed motions. I should upload some examples.

The CodFish (LW9.6 content) is rigged with alot of Relativity.

For any and every project, I use Relativity to make it tighter.
With it, I can get things done that the normal expression system is either incapable of or just falls apart with.
All it needed was a nodal system. Otherwise, it was/is the MOST solid plug ever written for lw, able to go through several iterations with minimal update. That is to say, it didn't break.
I hope the algorithms are saved and implemented in a nodal way within Core.
