Lightwave 3D Sci-Fi Modeling-Volume #2-by Adam Gibson
In this training video watch Lightwave Instructor Adam Gibson build a Sci-Fi Style City similar to many that have been created for big screen sci-fi action films.
The premise of this video is to show Lightwave's quick and powerful modeling tools combined with some compositing tricks to create the illusion of a massive city using very little geometry. Less geometry means quicker render times. Techniques on how to set up a Sky-Dome and how to set-up optical illusions using Perspective are discussed in detail.
