Hi all,

Read the latest in May's newsletter posted here: http://www.newtek.com/lightwave/newsletter.php

It covers details of awards for LightWave projects, a new plugin called vRoom, a beautiful picture of the month and it leads off with an illuminating interview with Aristomenis Tsirbas on the process behind making Battle for Terra.

Great stuff!

Very interresting news this time around... And I might add that I'm proud to be one of the beta-testers of vRoom. :)

Also, I really like the fact that NewTek listened to my suggestion of a clean Announcement Forum and, ontop of that, discussionthreads for specific announcement. This is really going to help new and old users to quickly find news from NewTek without having to wade through tons of on/off topic posts from enthusiastic users. :)

Great! :thumbsup:

Nitpick:

The shot from Fringe (http://www.newtek.com/lightwave/images/profiles/imagesimage/newsletter/05_2009/fng_faceMelt_0004.jpg) was actually done in Maya with Mental ray. Pretty much all other shots were LW (such as the guy who gets sick and have transparent skin, and the exterior shots of the plane).

Luke asked me to just link to his site, the link to YouTube is there, and there is a EuriskoStudios channel on YouTube rather than just putting individual anims: http://www.youtube.com/user/euriskostudios.
