Lightwave used on Iron Man - Bobblehead Available

NewTek announced that they will be showcasing the role of  LightWave 3D® in rendering the "Iron Man" at NewTek booth #159 at SIGGRAPH 2008. Michael Blackbourn, lead 3D artist at The Embassy Visual Effects, will be at the NewTek booth to discuss his use of LightWave® to render the iron-clad Mark 1 suit used at the beginning of the feature film.

"LightWave played an instrumental role for The Embassy Visual Effects in rendering all the digital shots of Iron Man’s Mark 1 suit and enhancing several scenes with animation and particles," said Michael Blackbourn, lead 3D artist for "Iron Man." "LightWave 3D gave us the power to create exactly what the director envisioned, from duplicating the complex look of the amazing practical suit, the animation of doors that get punched off their hinges, to the volumetric smoke and debris when the Mark 1 is flying and crash landing."

"LightWave 3D is a work horse for extremely talented artists, like Michael and his team, who push it to the limit every day. LightWave fits within any budget and pipeline," said Jay Roth, president of 3D division, NewTek. "NewTek is honored that The Embassy chose LightWave to help put Iron Man into action."
