I thought there were things like anti trust laws and the like, but now that Autodesk acquired Softimage from AVID they have three out of the four leading 3D animation packages.

Level of Detail

So I have been "off the grid" for a bit. I did start a blog for my students to use as digital workbook. I'm teaching two Lightwave classes right now, and for the one on lighting and rendering I just created this test, using level of detail in Lightwave. Hope to return to regular posts soon!
