    NEW VIDEO- Lightwave-Rigging a Human-Project Biped

    http://www.learn3dsoftware.com/lw_rigging_a_human.htm

    In this 14 hour video training course for beginner Lightwave students the essential basics to rig human style characters for posing and animation.

    Detailed demonstration of how to build/edit a complete skeletal structure with skelegons/bones, weight-mapping, bone parenting, model modification/adjustments, test deformations, adding powerful hand and foot control nulls, IK (Inverse Kinematics) Set-up and problem solving are all included within this course. A great training guide for beginner 3D students to get started rigging their 3D models for animation purposes. Make your 3D models and characters come to life!!

    *All Model and Scene Files are included with the course so that you can follow along.
