    Lightwave 2019's Best Kept Secret!

    "One rig to the rule them all"..lol A look at the simply stellar IKFK+ Studios Genoma 2 rig that comes with Lightwave 2019. It allows for IK and FK simultaneously without the need to use blending. It works in Lightwave 2015 and in Motion Mixer with multiple characters!! Simply awesome.

    Great post! You should come over to one of our SIGGRAPH meetings.

    Fantastic. I'm not a rigger, but am curious why such a "simple rig" was never made before (by a rigging user, not referring to the LW devs here) ? It shows the devs certainly do know a trick when they see it. If this can be combined with the RebelHill face rig, then we are in a great place.

    Character animation workflows in Lightwave now have mindbending options with Rhiggit/FaceFactory, IKBooster, Genoma etc - you could have two character animators in LW using completey different workflows. If someone came new into this, I wonder the pros and cons of Albee "vs" RebelHill "vs" Roye "vs" this rig. And it would be great if the Dstorm LW tutorials from Japan could be translated into English to see how our friends are doing things there.

    Really great to see your enthusiasm here Brent. Thanks again.

    Great Lexx, in studio we've always relied on what was the quickest and most user friendly when it came to rigs (since it maybe passed off to others to contribute animations) and Genoma helped greatly in that regard. But IKFK+'s Genoma 2 rig is mind bending! This is not just a Lightwave highlight but an animation rigging highlight. I've never seen a rig do both IK/FK simultaneously without having to use blending before. So for me it's beyond a look what's in LW thing and more like a holy crap look what somebody created for character animation! It's just so simple and elegant (yes elegant) and it works with Motion Mixer...nuff said.

    Isn't that sort of the same thing as demoed here in LightWave 6 (except that it's pre-made in 2019)?

    What's old is new. Similar Concept it seems, brilliant execution so try it.

    Hey Brent,

    Love your enthusiasm, but the rig was given to us to distribute with 2019. It is not yours to give away to anyone that views your video. Please remove it.

    All the best,

    because not being able to share something as simple as a Genoma 2 rig that was previously made by a user is disappointing, but the link was promptly removed as requested and enthusiasm curbed.

    Played a bit with this rig. Very useful. Only one thing "but" - IK controllers followed body main controller all time.

    You should be able to assign the IK hand goals to a different parent...as well as setup dynamic parenting with them.

    Yes, I thought about it, it would just be more convenient to have a controller rig inside for that.
