LightWave 3D Video Tutorial – Using TrueArt’s EasySplit

A few days ago I got a question in relation to the article I posted some months back, tips to speed up the modeling workflow in LightWave, concerning the TrueArt’s plugins that I use. How I actually incorporate them in my workflow.

So I thought it would be a nice idea to make a video tutorial on some useful concepts where the tools can speed up the daily workflow. So below you’ll find an EasySplit usage tutorial.

I start the tutorial by going through some basic concepts with the tool, and then I show a shorter modeling session for a few minutes – making a simple pouch and using the plugin to draw in a wrinkle in the geometry, one of many typical cases where it can save some decent amount of time.

This video also gave me the opportunity to try out the new HD support on YouTube to ditch YouTube and start using Vimeo for my HD videos instead, so I recorded it in High Definition 720p, and the HD mode is selected by default in the player, so the video should look nice and crisp even in fullscreen. If you’re on a slower connection, you might want to uncheck the HD button in the player.

Okay, let’s see how this works out, as it was my first attempt to create a video tutorial (except a few quick ones for my own plugins). Well, I hope some of you will find this tutorial useful, and if so I could probably record a few more on different subjects – time permitting.

  1. Johan,

    Great tutorial! is that on SpinQuad anywhere? I think a lot of people would enjoy viewing this. Totally dug your workflow and great use of some tools that I myself have not used before.

    Thanks again

    • Hey Tony,

      Thanks, I am happy to hear that you found the tutorial useful. :)
      I haven’t really posted it anywhere except here. Not intentional though – but work has been crazy lately so I just haven’t had the time to post it on forums. I was pretty pleased that I squeezed in some time to actually record it and get it up here anyway.

      I have a few more tutorials coming as soon as time permits, and now when I’ve got my feet wet with this one, I hope each new will see some improvements, like getting a better flow in my voice over and such.

  2. Hey Buddy,

    I subscribed to your RSS feed, so I can’t wait to see what you do next.

    More later

    TOny :)
