    Aviation VFX done in Lightwave

    I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to work on some exciting jet dogfight VFX for an independent Pakistani film made in 2018.

    Lovely work Mr Scott, I don't often visit these forums anymore but sometimes there is really impressive stuff on show. The video explains your process very well and is worth watching.

    As I said in the comments section on YouTube... absolutely brilliant VFX work.
    Can't fault any of it, and the movement of the aircraft is perfect!!!

    Very nice indeed Scott, seamless animation and VFX work and so nice to see something from outside of the normal Hollywood breakdowns.

    Only just saw this. Beautiful work, every bit of it, reminiscent of the "Dodfights" series.
