    Ivan, thank you very much for making these tutorials, I'm working my way thru them.

    ABF UV Unwrap seems pretty powerful: considering all the wishlisting by users for UV tools I have to wonder if they just haven't tried it yet. Is it lacking some critical features???

    BTB, I've noted several posters, myself included, who wishlist (new verb!) for features that actually have been implemented in the 11.n series. I'll try to do better, but everybody should re-read the "What's New in 11.n" dox just to remind themselves of what is already available.

    Your welcome guys!!!!

    Your right jeric, there are about 5 tools I discovered a couple of weeks ago, that came out in LW 11.5 I believe....I found them by chance when I watched the 11.5 promo by newtek...I'll make a short tute.

    As far as the compositing buffer export, It would be brilliant if the "Shaded Diffuse" pass didn't incorporate the shadows, so that we can use the "shadow pass" and have total control ( I know you can turn the shadows off and render the diffuse pass, but then you dont get the shadow pass at all...I'd like it rendered in one go) I think the pass I want is an "Indirect light pass" kinda like the ambient occlusion pass with colour and no shadows...you can combined the raw colour with am occ, but its just not the same.

    Wow thanks again Ivan! Finished the UV one, the EPS trick is very cool and the tutorial is useful for UV beginners of other software as well (how to unwrap the different shapes).

    For the environment tutorial: I find the way the stones, dust and debris fits to the ground and other objects very beautiful in your shots. Often this looks very constructed in pure 3d renders, I have no idea how to do that without post. Is your mech scenes animatable with the same look without using AE or similar sw?

    Cheers, Marander

    Marander, the image with the robots in the WASTEland (spelt it right this time) is made up of one BG image (matte painting) and the robots which are 3D....all the detail you see in the image is all photo images placed and blended in to the rest of the environment making sure to get the perspective correct...this is how all matte paintings are made...this is where the camera mapping using front projection could help to turn that 2d image into a 3d environment. I could only show you the basics of matte painting some photoshop tricks and some rules to follow, but Im not that great an artist. I'll see if I can think of something that I can put together that covers the whole process.

    tyrot I'm currently in the middle of preparing for that tute, I'll show the basics then something a little more detailed, then something a lot more detailed with the help of sketchup.

    I take this image of the old factory and turn it into a 3D environment with a slow fly in camera move, and added a whole stack of 3D animated objects.

    Thanks Ivan, this looks very good, maybe should be on the lightwave youtube groups page too, especially since quite a few of their recent uploads havenīt been of my interest really, but this is, and itīs a common used technique which many donīt have a clue on how to do, so it would serve the community well.
    clear and crisp videos both in sound and visual quality.

    I dog tired now..so I havenīt followed it through completly, but it looks great.
