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

DIGITAL SCULPTING SOFTWARE


Nice way of modeling is sculpting and then take your work to Lightwave and finish there the job.

ZBRUSH 4R7
Powerful tools, retopology and painting textures included...and GOZ connection with LW!!


ZBRUSH CORE
Reduced version fo 4R7, not such powerful tools as mentioned above but interesting


3D COAT
Retopo and texturing tools


BLENDER
The most competitive price (FREE!) and nice tools. Not nice texturing tools, but a lot of plugins to work with mesh... sadly not available in LW some of them like great retopo tools

LW CAMERA TO BLENDER



How to get your LW camera into Blender using FBX. A bit tricky because Blender versions. Very useful if you want to get the nice simulations of fire and smoke you create with Blender into a composition with your LW renders. It's not exactly TurbulenceFD but it's cheaper... even free :)

 In this tutorial I render a simple scene with animated camera in Lw and later I add smoke rendered in Blender to it

 Here you are the files I used in the tutorial. If you want to compose the results you can get Fusion for free

-------

Como llevar tu cámara LW a Blender. Un poco lioso por culpa de las versiones de Blender que variaron el modo de trabajar con los fbx. De esta manera puedes simular fuego, humo, etc. en Blender y componerlo con tus renders LW. No es exactamente TurbulenceFD pero es gratis.

 En este tutorial renderizo una escena simple con la cámara animada en Lw y le añado humo generado en Blender.

Aquí tienes los archivos que usé en el tutorial. Si quieres componer los resultados, aquí puedes descargarte el software gratuito FUSION
