LightWave 2015 is the latest iteration of the world's easiest and most reliable 3D software. LightWave 2015 provides the tools that you need to solve your animation and design challenges with numerous new workflow enhancements and features designed to streamline your creative process. Top studios to independent artists around the world all agree, some jobs are impossible to deliver with any other 3D package. When faced with tight deadlines and overly complex pipelines, you can count on LightWave 2015 to deliver.
LightWave 2015 makes the impossible possible for all kinds of projects with its direct and robust workflow. Whether visual effects, motion graphics, game development, architectural visualization, product design or advertising, simplify your creative process with LightWave 2015.
Constraints and Motors
Take control over dynamics simulations with new constraint types such as Point-to-Point, Hinge, Slider, Cone Twist, Spring and six degrees of freedom (DOF) constraint types. Whether it's a car rolling over a terrain with fully working suspension, or a rag doll falling down the stairs, constraints help make it believable.
Better, Cleaner Renders
Greatly improve the quality of scenes lit by GI and HDR images or any type of background lighting. By intelligently concentrating rays into important areas, noise and splotches that can arise from highly differing light intensities are eliminated, resulting in cleaner, more accurate renders.
Plate Matching In Minutes
Whether matching plates or simply placing objects into photographs, matching the camera position and rotation is a tedious process. With the new Match Perspective tool this chore is now a breeze. Using simple on-screen gizmos to feed information to the Match Solver means you can sync your LightWave camera to an original photo or plate quickly.
Fast, Flexible Rigging
This rapid modular rigging system, which at the base level is a complete rigging development kit (RDK) can be used to quickly rig characters for animation without the need to setup complex rigs from scratch. Genoma 2 gives everyone the ability to create expert rigs and makes it possible to generate custom presets that perfectly fit into any character animation pipeline at any degree of complexity, including the use of Math Expressions and Scripts. It also features new and improved Human, Feline and Arthropod preset rigs.
