Using the power of LightWave 3D, they create a realtime application that let’s you build and custom from scratch your bicycle. Go behind the scenes and see how LightWave 3D helped creating this 3D configurator.
Farkas Ekho Zsolt is no stranger to challenges: in 2014, he has been recreating Benczur Gyula's 2D painting of the 19th century masterpiece "Budavar Repossession" in LightWave 3D. Recently, he took on a much bigger challenge! For the 450th anniversary of the siege of Szigetvar, he decided to recreate in 3D Johann Peter Krafft's 2D painting of the 1566 Siege of Szigetvar, a key event of the Ottoman-Habsburg wars. See the shot breakdown and discover how Farkas recreated his own version of this masterpiece in LightWave 3D.

Expressing his creativity through this personal project, the Italian LightWave 3D artist Antonio Vallorani released this month an amazing Gundam tribute video. From modeling to animation, Vallorani used LightWave 3D, 3D-Coat and Octane Render to deliver his own vision. The project-a 50-minutes movie-will be split into two parts: the first one (a 15 minutes' prologue) and the second one (35 minutes), will narrate the real history. If you love Gundam that's something you shouldn't miss!
