The Next Step

LightWave gives you flexibility for experimenting and trying new techniques. Use this flexibility to your advantage. The information covered in this chapter is not the only way to complete a kinematics setup. Take this basic information and build on it. Mix techniques together or create your own. LightWave gives you the freedom to create. The information in this chapter can be used for a countless number of projects, from animated ropes to slithering snakes, crazy aliens, or even animals. IK is useful for robotic movements, characters, and even everyday occurrences such as blowing curtains. You can use IK with bones to animate things such as water surfaces or with image-mapped tubes to simulate a twisting tornado. The ideas are endless, but with the right information, you can create anything!
