Joshua Tsui is one of the game artists behind the phenomenally successful MORTAL KOMBAT game series. Past credits include 'Mortal Kombat Mythologies', 'Mortal Kombat 4', 'WWF Wrestlemania The Arcade Game', and 'NHL Open Ice'. Besides his experience in the games industry, he has also taught Lightwave 3D for over 5 years at Columbia College Chicago where he gained valuable insight into various methods of teaching computer software.From the Author:
I wrote this book with the intention of showing the "hidden" powers of Lightwave 3D. To my surprise it turned out to be a book that has helped many people grasp concepts of 3D animation in general. Unlike many books, the tutorials in 'Lightwave X-Treme' are written to concentrate on technique and theory. What this means is that you will be able to easily apply the ideas in the tutorials to many other situations. They do not pertain to just one subject matter. Within the tutorials you will gather valuable insight to the process of creating effects and learn about commands and shortcuts that would be very difficult to discover otherwise. In this style of learning, you will pick up much more then the techniques that are laid out chapter to chapter. The goal is to be able to take all of the different tricks and combine them to create your own techniques and style. It is this ability to have an individual style that separates the great animators from the mediocre ones.
