    Lightwave VS XSI

    OK, enough about Maya. I'm curious to hear from anyone who has experience in both XSI and Lightwave to see how they compare.

    Blender beats LW hands down, it has a monkey primitive.

    I actually find these comparisons quite informative, if you can sift through the invective ...

    If I was a moderator

    I'd say to this thread "GO TO HELL!!", and delete it...

    No benefits from this thread except that you are destroying our hopes on Lightwave.

    LW vs All the world

    there will be no HOPE on LW after these all pessimistic threads.

    why just newtek don't delete them.

    I avoid to tell my student to visit NT forums because of these threads.

    Are you nuts? It is always helpful to look at the competition and see where improvement can be made. After a close look, the competition often doesn't shine as bright as it seemed to before. I've heard good and bad reports on XSI and I was interested in seeing what areas we're doing well in and what areas need work. No point in putting our heads in the sand...it's always usefull to keep an eye open. Also, who says LW is the only ap to use? Sometimes more than one is helpful.

    hey you sillycontrol ...

    you know CGtalk?

    it's the biggest community for 3D

    go and post your competition there... and let me know if they not deleted you post.

    just search the forums here, there are hundreds of threads that talks about xsi vs lw.... go and read them no need to post a new one.

    Lw and XSI complement each other perfectly.. where one lacks, the other shines.

    Animation and Rendering


    (Well, not that XSI lacks in rendering (on the contrary in fact), but LW is much more straightforward, looks great has unlimited nodes, and has Fprime, which in my case, makes using LW a must)

    There is no comparison in animation and rigging terms. XSI wins hands down. I think all that have experience of both would agree.

    I wouldnt recommend completely dropping LW for XSI, but for anyone who wants a great animation solution, then its a fantastic addition.

    I've thought about getting XS:Foundation before, to compliment my Lightwave. Nothing wrong with having multiple programs to get the job done.

    I have to agree with Pooby these days. . .
    All that is powerful or long standing is first conceived in the imagination; supported by the hope of possibility and then made manifest in our commitment of our current physical reality.

    Id like to see an example of improvements that have come from just one of these so called comparitive threads. They ALWAYS do nothing more then create problems because most of the time they degenerate into 'LW sucks' threads.
