    NEW VIDEO-Lightwave 3D 9.6 Rigging a T-Rex with Bones

    Lightwave 3D 9.6 Rigging a T-Rex with Bones-by Adam Gibson

    In this Rigging Video Course Lightwave Instructor Adam Gibson shows the beginner 3D student how to use the Bone Tools in Lightwave's Layout to rig a Tyrannosaurus dinosaur. Weight Mapping is also covered in addition to show how to keep your character's mesh stable during posing and animation. This video is an excellent way to learn how to quickly and easily get your characters set up so they can eventually be animated to walk, run, jump and much much more.
