Amazon.com Product Description

This is an upgrade to version 5.0 of Adobe After Effects, the motion graphics and visual effects software. It offers a host of new features for greater flexibility. It is now possible to have composite layers in 2-D or 3-D space with fine control over multiple cameras and lights. You can animate layers hierarchically by defining a parent-child relationship between any two layers. Use expressions to define relationships between parameters so that you can create procedural-type animations without using key frames. Apply new effects such as Shatter, Radio Waves, and Vegas to create a new range of looks. This new version also allows you to take advantage of masking enhancements; you can edit masks in the composition window, assign mask colors, apply motion blur to masks, and more. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars There is no better professional tool for animation
I have been a devote used or After Effects for 6 years now. AE has never once let me down, and their upgrades have always been vast improvements over the previous versions (sometimes you didn't even know what could be improved in the first place, and Adobe would surprise you with something great).

This package is no exception. For the improved 3D capabilities alone, this package is worth the upgrade to 5.0. As usual, Adobe has attempted to merge the feel of its other step-siblings (Photoshop, Illustrator, GoLive, etc) into After Effects, and has in fact done so quite well.

Trust me: This is the same package that major motion pictures post-production companies use...the same package that is used in probably 90% of today's commercials... nothing is more straight-forward, well thought-out and just a pleasure to work with than Adobe After Effects. I highly recommend 5.0 to anyone. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

LightWave 3D 6.5 is a powerful animation-production package for professionals. It is built upon the fast, accurate 3-D Inverse Kinematics (IK) engine. It features radiosity, caustics, subdivision surface animation, Skelegons, and thousands of enhancements. LightWave 6.5 is a robust tool set for manipulating these surfaces, including interactive modifiers that allow you to model in multiple "soft" modes. LightWave also allows you to sculpt "digital clay" by directly manipulating it at the vertex level, controlling groups of points or polygons with an extreme list of operators. Real-time subdivision surfaces, extensive texturing tools, character animation tools, HyperVoxels, and ray tracing are all incorporated into an extremely powerful animation system.

There are many new features and enhancements in version 6.5. There is now a UV texture atlas for automated complex UV map creation, continuous and discontinuous UV mapping, and light and texture baking. Bone deformations have been significantly optimized and are now up to 40 times faster. In the Motion Designer, a soft-body dynamics engine is now integrated seamlessly into the interface. There is also an integrated particle system, open GL transparency, enhanced texturing, and improved Bezier handling and general speed optimizations in Graph Editor. There is a powerful new integrated expressions system, including an expressions tree view in the Graph Editor.

Improvements to HyperVoxels include fast 2-D sprite mode and new HyperVoxels effects. The new noise-reduction tool in layout greatly improves the render quality of zero-tolerance radiosity and area-linear light shadows. This allows for much higher-quality radiosity output at lower radiosity settings, resulting in greatly reduced render times. Volumetric Antialiasing in the effects panel allows the user to disable this feature. This allows for much lower render times when utilizing volumetrics. The volumetrics tools have many improvements, including a new Cast Shadows option in the volumetric lights panel, which will cast shadows caused by the light opacity. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Lightwave 3D modeling and animation capabilities
Lightwave is probably one of the most mature and capable of all the 3D modeling, rendering, and animation programs on the market. I have worked with it since it was first released in 1991 and was then unique to the Commodore Amiga platform; few know that it actually had a predecessor (also written by Allen Hastings) known as Videoscape.

The program is especially well suited to engineering and technical applications but it will handle essentially any kind of animation or modeling task extremely well. You can learn to use it quickly, but learning all of its capabilities is probably a life-long task.

These are some of the things I've used the program for:

1. Creating illustrations and cover art for technical documents. 2. Architectural renderings. 3. Training materials. 4. Scientific and technical visualization. 5. TV commercials

One interesting feature of the program is that it can import AutoCAD DFX files. Poser 3D - which models the human body - can export that format, so you with the combination of the two, yoou can create some striking images of the human form in any setting you can imagine.

It's a great program.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you are creative, you can build anything
Lightwave 3D is one of the rare products that allows a novice user to create something amazing within an hour of using the program for the first time, and allow the user to dig deeper and deeper. Lightwave has a powerful foundation with a huge assortment of tools. One could literally use the program for a year and create amazing stuff, and yet, still not use half the features it offers. Virtually every tool is simple to implement, but powerful in their scope. The only catch is you need to be able to think and be able to solve problems. Lightwave does not hold your hand and build an Emmy Award winning animation for you. Lightwave is a giant 3D canvas just waiting for a talented person to fill it with something extraordinary.

Lightwave is supported by a community of dedicated animators who want to see the product continue to flourish. There are numerous books, tapes, and websites to aid the budding animator. You could spend a lot less than the price of Lightwave and get a lot less capability. You could also spend a lot more and I, for one, am not convinced you would get more.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lightwave is amazing
NewTek's lightwave 6.5 is a terrific program... in my opinion it is the easiest and fastest modeler around... the texture procedurals are just wonderfull. The program employs so many little features which go unnoticed but dramatically speed up creation time. Lightwave's interface is both easy to understand, and extremely efficient. Lightwave does not have little silly icons for each operation... rather they have words on buttons which are descriptors to what the button does... and on each button it tells you what the hotkey is to use that particular function. This naturally cuts the learning curve down very rapidly. Lightwave also has the simplest and fastest UV mapping functions i have ever seen. It is a WONDERFUL product and i recommend it anyone from the beginner 3d user to the seasoned expert ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

After Effects 4.1 is a considerable upgrade from 4.0, and light-yearsahead of the venerable 3.1. For those unfamiliar with the tool, here's whatthere is to know: there are few feature films, TV show title sequences,broadcast and cable shows, and TV commercials that make it through productionwithout being touched by After Effects. It is the animation and compositing toolof choice among the majority of working professionals, and with good reason.

After Effects is a different program to different people. For some, it is a toolfor creating motion graphics for film titles. For others, it is a tool forcompositing layers of animation on top of live action. And, for still others, itis ideal for creating animated textures for backgrounds, or for use as decals ina 3-D application. It can import and export almost any type of graphic format,including QuickTime movies, AVI movies, TGA sequences, TIFF sequences, andanimated GIFs.

There are numerous new features with 4.1, including a project flowchart view,where one can see diagrammatically how compositions and layers are being usedand which ones are nested in other comps. Also, RAM previews can now be saved todisk after previewing as QuickTime movies, and the values of effects sliders canbe customized, allowing for very fine control of any effect property.

An important new feature is Collect Files. Save a copy of the project file andall imported elements into a specified folder, and you're ready for archiving ortransporting to another site for rendering. Be careful with this action, though:if your project uses any large video clips, make sure you have enough free spaceon the destination drive to accommodate everything.

All these features (and the flexibility) come at a price: After Effects isreasonably easy to use for very simple work, but it requires some effort tomaster for professional level output. Although the tutorials in the manual areenough to get one started, a good companion book for deeper learning is Classroom in a Book: Adobe After Effects from Adobe Press.

After being idle for literally years (referred to as the "3.1 years"), AfterEffects has rocketed through a growth spurt and is maturing into a deep andrespected program. For any serious film or video animator, motion graphicsartist, or compositor, this upgrade to After Effects 4.1 is must-have. --MikeCaputo--This text refers to the Mac version of this software. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars After Effects 4.1 - More Intuitive and Powerful
Adobe has improved on what is likely one of the most powerful video compositing programs available. After Effects 4.1 has set a standard for manipulating video, text and graphics.

The improvements in this upgrade include more powerful and easier to use matte tools, many small interface tweaks and a few important bug fixes.

The overall program, though still difficult to master becuause of it's power and number of features, is much more intuitive. It also seems much more rubust on NT than in the past. Render and preview tools have improved, though rendering is still the biggest downside to such a powerful program. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Who should buy this
Research this purchase! Know what you are getting. There is hardly enough room in a review like this to give you the info you really need. This program is a serious, hard-core 3D modeling/animation/rendering package. There is an enormous community of users that (for some reason) seems to stick together. To learn about this product, start at http://www.newtek.com . Check out www.newtekpro.com and www.keyframemag.com . These are two magazines dedicated to the software. There are also many other options out there, apart from LighWave. Depending on your needs, you may want to research Maya, Softimage|XSI, Cinema 4D, 3ds max, World Construction Set, Bryce, Poser, Truespace, Electric Image, Strata, or Vue d'espirit. Each of these software packages has its advantages and disadvantages. Most people would probably tell you that the biggest advantages of LightWave are the polygonal modeling tools, and the rendering engine. I use LightWave all the time, and the areas which I find lacking are the complete absence of procedural modeling tools like those of 3ds max -of course, 3ds max lacks great polygonal modeling-, and its lack of more sophisticated particle and texturing features, such as in Maya paint effects. But LightWave is really built on the concept of providing a powerful core piece of software, to which you can add what functionality you wish, via plugins and other 3rd party extensions. All that said, LighWave really is a reletively straightforeward, easy-to-use program, and you can get things done a lot more quickly in LightWave than in most other packages. By the way, "duo-dongle" in the product title refers to the USB hardware key that comes with LighWave, which works for Macs and PCs. ... Read more

With the new effects,users will have increased control over lighting properties and access to morethan 90 effects in total.

After Effects 5.5 has also improved the input and output options not availablein earlier versions of After Effects. Advanced RealMedia export now allows usersto export files directly into the RealMedia format. Users can easily createRealMedia streaming or Web downloadable files that support RealVideo andRealAudio. Users can also import Flash and MPEG-1 files into their compositions.3-D camera data import from Maya, 3ds max, and 16-bit-per-channel formats suchas Maya IFF, QuickTime, RPF, and SGI files are also supported. This allows usersto work more efficiently and achieve professional-quality results for film,video, multimedia, and the Web. Artists and designers can now import RLA and RPFdata directly into After Effects 5.5 to match 3-D shots exactly, thus quicklycreating complete environments.
