TUTU, ANIMATION SERIE



TUTU is a new animation serie I was working on. Lightwave 3D was used for the shading, lighting, fx and rendering. This serie was created by FICCION PRODUCCIONES (Spain) for the Spanish National TV, RTVE.

Here you are the TUTU YOUTUBE CHANNEL

RTVE TUTU link






You can download for free the Tutu APP where  Lightwave was also used

'PROTON' VAUGHAN TUTORIALS. OLDIES BUT GOLDIES



PUSHING POINTS is the site of William 'Proton' Vaughan, previously LW 'evangelist'

Maybe Proton Vaughan is not sharing so many tuts as before, but Youtube is plenty of useful tutorials for beginners (and not so beginners) with Lightwave






Interesting thread started by Vaughan at Foundation 3D  with a lot of tutorials. Maybe old but useful.

WORKING WITH TEXTURES


Very useful tutorial about creating tileable textures using Photoshop. When you have different shadow levels it seems a nightmare to fix it, but just a few of Photoshop steps to get it. Take a look to this (and others) tutorial by Neil Blevins






 Probably you know textures.com (previously cgtextures) one of the most popular textures resources site. There you can find another tuts about textures  and, of course, tons of texture for free or commercial. You only have to sign up.

LIGHTWAVE RADIOSITY TIPS

Recently, I've been dealing a lot (...again...) with radiosity, interpolation,catching and all those things. I discovered a few links very interesting about that. Some of them are very known by the LW community.

 The most popular maybe this article at EXCEPT site. Not updated to recent versions of Lightwave 3D but the best guide you can find about the LW GI 'world'





Tips and tricks in RENDERGEEK site.






 A bit old but interesting thoughts and tips about radiosity at Foundation3D forum





Short but useful video about settings and results
