  • Lightwave
    • Tools
      • Surfacing
        • This is a tool that allows you to edit the look, smoothness on a object to make it appear more realistic, for example the leg of wooden chairs given shadow effects to create a more sleek look
      • Rigging
        • this is a tool used widely with models as it allows you make rigs to show bodily features such as indentations around limbs and bones, making them appear more realistic
      • Hypervoxels
        • this is a 3D animation tool for liquid effects, in that they can be given different densities and different effects, such as water can be seen to run and flow differently to lava
      • Bullet Dynamics
        • this tool when used correctly givesx the illusion of realsiotic bullet effects but can also be used for the collapsing of objects or explosions. this is a vital tool as it would be very taxing and difficult to create each individual bullet and every explosion.
    • Scripting
      • with Light wave the user has access to scripting languages such as python and visual basic for compatibility
        • Python was a recent addition and is an advantage the user because it is well known and allows animators in the community to use the software effectively
    • Controls
      • Textures
        • controls in Loight Wave include the controls to select and choose differnt texutres and styles which can be applied to objects and images
      • Add
        • this can be used to input images or 3D graphics into frames for animations
      • Replace
        • This is a tool that is also used with frames also in that you can replace different images in frames with others or use 3D graphics
    • Key Frames
      • this software package offers an easily customisable options to the user. as well as quickly locating and editing frames you can also add any desired effects, filters or scales on your work
    • Modelling
      • the modelling used with this software has an advanced feature made available much sooner than other software packages.
        • this is known as polygonal, subdivision surface modeling
          • gives access to advanced modeling techniques
            • Modelling
              • the modelling used with this software has an advanced feature made available much sooner than other software packages.
                • this is known as polygonal, subdivision surface modeling
                  • gives access to advanced modeling techniques
      • Preloaders
        • requires custom built preloadera
        • requires plugins for freeloaders to be included
          • requires custom built preloadera
      • Buttons
        • seen as difficcult to use by many users as most of the display that is presented is for editing so buttons can be difficult to find
      • Layers
        • as this is a piece of animation software layers are not avaliable to the user, howver frames can be edited. this would be done in a stop motion fashion where each individual frame can be looked at and customised to the users liking
      • This is 3D graphics computer software which was designed and created by NewTek
        • Known for its fast renddering engine which allows such features as realistic reflection and refraction.
          • suppourts both polygon modelling and subdivison surfaces
            • this piece of software has seen its work used in may forms of entertainment such as : television, video gaming, motion graphics and many more
