Making a Forest Tutorial

Part 1: In this tutorial we will create a basic terrain using displacement maps. The displacement map is obtained by using a procedural texture that will be modified later in Photoshop.

Part 1: Creating the Terrain

Part 2: In this tutorial we will be creating 10K textures in Photoshop, that will be later applied to the terrain model we created in Part 1.

Part 2: 10K Textures in Photoshop

Part 3: In this tutorial we will create Bump, Specularity and Diffuse maps for the terrain right inside of Lightwave. We will also create and texture the water plane.

Part 3: Additional Textures

Part 4: In this tutorial we will create a basic sunlight setup using HDRI images. We will also create trees using the DP Verdure plugin.

Part 4: Lighting and Trees

Part 5: In this last tutorial we will be populating our terrain with some trees, using Lightwave’s native instancing tool.

Model, Texture, and Animate a Fountain tutorial

Learn how to model, texture , and animate a fountain using a combination of solid geometry and a particle system.

(note: invert the droplet weight map… I accidentally weighted the droplet area 0% and the outside and inside waves as 100%.)

The opening video of the final render is on a three second loop so the final result looks way better than the preview.

Adjust the speed of the waves two ways:
1.) alter the “wave speed” of the ripple texture
2.) alter the Y channel’s distance per second of the turbulence and/or fractal noise (or the crumple “bump map”).

LightWave 3D: Spline Control and Streamers Tutorial

Using Spline Control with the Inertia plugin to get a nice dynamic streamer. There’s a couple of simple fixes for issues you may encounter along the way. No audio.

No 3rd party plugins are used but I am using LW2015 which cuts out a couple of extra steps from previous versions, as pointed out along the way.
