But guys, isn't what he wanted to know, also something that would show how the
ease of use and functionality and the like of LW is, and not just things that
have been done with the program? Showing good work does not tell someone how
good a program is to work with. I for one can tell him that LW is in general a
pretty easy to use program and has some awesome modeling power, but has lame
charactor animation abilities. It has great rendering and the like, but has
lame texture mapping. So I think it would all depend on what this guy needs to
get done that would determine which program he needs to get......Like I always
see how everyone is continually *ing about that 3D Max sucks (or doesn't)
and so I finally got to see it for myself and can say that, yes there are
things that I don't like, but there IS one thing that I wouldn't be able to
live without, and that was the easy way it had to create charactor motion.
i wish that LW would GET WITH IT and make something that worked as simply as
that..............my 52 cents, or is 58 cents hear in California.....md :)
