    Making a bed

    A friend is using Cinema 4D and showed me this bedroom modelling tutorial:

    http://greyscalegorilla.com/blog/201...ema-4d-part-1/

    When he makes the blanket, he use collision to form it on to the bed. Can this be done in LW or is it a smarter way to do it - to form fabric/sheets to an other object?

    I is doable, I've done it before, but it's not a very elegant solution. The calculations are slow and the settings are very easy to screw up. LW 11.5 will come with bullet cloth dynamics, it should be a breeze with that.

    Not easy to do in lightwave so we use this:

    If you don't need to animate it and don't want to spend money, you could try manipulating the sheets in Sculptris, a free app from Pixologic. No comparison to Marvelous Designer (or Zbrush), but still a useful tool.

    yest you can use cloth fx for it, I would recomend using a proxy object similar in shape and size to the bed area, so dont mess with the whole bed.
    then save out the simulated cloth object with save transformed, you can then further tweak and correct the model in modeler.

    You could also wait a month our so to see how LW 11.5 works with itīs new bullet cloth.

    otherwise..Marvelous designer has good reputation, but that is extra cost etc.

    check all lw tutorials ..Proton has some stuff made for lw training..search this interface on clothfx

    I would probably recommend you to create very simple objects like a sphere and test a flat grid plane to cover the sphere to understand first.
    hereīs cloth f to conform to a microphone shape.

    yes, check that vid.
    then save transformed in Layout, bring it into Modeler, and add a thickness to it.

    LW ClothFX should be quite alright for this.

    I can not open this ftp://ftp.newtek.com/multimedia/movi...k.html?mic.mov. I hear the voice, but no video. Have tried both Divx and Win Media Player. Any solutions?

    donīt try to view it directly, download it, and download vlc mediaplayer which handles mov quite well, or for instant slider feedback while watching tutorials...get apple quicktime free version.

    Some tutorials on ftp.newtek.com require the codec used by Camtasia.

    Search for lightwave cloth in youtube, a few tuts there too.

    I follow the Mic-Mesh tutorial as you suggested, Prometheus. But when he comes to "slim" the wire mesh, he use a tool in Modify/Translate: Point Normal Move.
    I'm using LW10 and that tool is missing. Can I find it somewhere or is there another way to do it?

    should be there, but probably hidden under modify/translate/more
    so check that more button and you will find more tools including point normal move.

    You can edit your menus and lift it out so you have direct acess to it
