    Pixar Open SubD

    I'm not sure if anyone has seen this yet/posted yet (sorry if its been said), but it's very cool stuff.

    Be great to eventually get this incorporated to lightwave, especially with Genoma's rigging. :P

    That is great news. That's one more thing to add to the want-list for LW12.

    Yes, no need to re-invent the wheel, this is one case where there's no need to be innovative. Its out there waiting to replace CC subdivision in LightWave.

    Definitely looks really well done.. I tried to make a Modeler tool with it without success... not sure what the problem is yet. They're estimating a release date around the end of the year.

    Exactly what needs to be implemented to bring in a true representation of what is created in Zbrush thru GOZ.

    Imagine hitting GOZ from Zbrush and getting this kind of sub-d resolution and the ability to push that poly count.

    That's gorgeous, man! Hard to believe we're getting so close to real-time performance with that level of detail...

    Can we take this as being in 11.6???

    BTW...Great showing at Siggraph! Love your focus. It's refreshing to hear you talk about your past and how you got started, goals of empowering individual artists, and future of LW. Well done!
