I have been marveling in the world of 3d since 1996. My 1st and really only 3d program was Lightwave 3d. Since '96 i have kept tabs all things Lightwave. Since I had it on a Amiga 1200(yes Amiga… Still have one), i have been keeping up with bits and bobs of animation work that i slooowly work through. I am not sure when i found out about Blender, but i am amazed of the power of Blender. The Blender organization and its commitment to excellence can only be compared to that of the Linux developers. Thank you to all Blender developers who take time out of their day to create such a useful and professional product.
So my main reason for being here. You search Youtube for Lightwave and there not a lot of choices out there for tutorials. Search Blender tutorial, and you get terabytes of videos. Are there any Lightwave converts out there, that know a good way to transition to Blender or is there an argument to stay with what i know? One of my main struggles is the co-ordinates system x,y,z. x= left to right, y= up and down, z= distance from camera. X an Y when I was in school was always left right up and down.
For the the Lightwave converts or maybe you are using both Blender and Lightwave, what would be your suggestion to get into Blender?. I have Blender and have opened it on a several occasions, but my brain hurt just looking at it. It is a very imposing layout
Thank you to all that take time to read
