Thread: What do you use LW for?

  1. #1

    What do you use LW for?

    Just curious. In the old forum, I remember having a discussion about how important features were based on what people used LW for. I thought I would take a poll to see. For instance, some people didn't care if they added more character tools since they didn't use them anyway, whereas I thought most people used them.

    This is only for curiosity, and reflects no future change or direction LW is heading in, but discussion is welcome.

    Well, I make games, but in order to do that, I have to character animate, model and texture, and do pretty much all the stuff in your list. I have to say, i wouldn't mind the opengl features boosted a bit to show more stuff in real time...

    I guess what I was curious about was your PRIMARY use for LW. The reason I use lightwave is ultimately for character animation but that also means I model, texture, etc... So I guess your main reason for using LW is games.

    Heh! No "all of the above"? One day I'm character animating, the next I'm doing architectural visualization then maybe logo animation - such is the life of a freelancer....

    I don't quite fit. Hobbyist who mainly creates stills for self gratification.

    I guess I should have added, "whatever the hell work comes along".

    Well, I voted undecided. I bought it initially because I wanted to work on some Anime style cartoon short ideas I have but, I'm also pursuing the thought of doing interactive training CD/DVD's using Shockwave.

    You missed one category - Web/Multimedia.

    This is one I'd be interested in seeing - Why? As far as I know, the only people I've met that seem to want to know about using LightWave with Director/Flash/Web/MMedia have been students and teachers training in the 'New Media' area.

    Most commercial users I've met are using it for TV/Film/Video/Games.
