Chapter 19. Particle and Fur Animation > Particles in LightWave

Particles in LightWave

You’ve probably heard the term particles when watching behind-the-scenes or “making of” shows. Animators have been using particles for years to set up a wide range of dynamic animations, from water to smoke, to swarming objects and more. But before you get too deep into the particle world, take a few minutes and learn how the tools are integrated into LightWave 7.

Creating a Basic Motion Particle Scene

For the project in this chapter, you work with particles directly in Layout. There’s no need for third-party plug-ins or expensive processing times. The particle engine in LightWave is robust and fast, as you’ll see shortly.
