Lightwave 2018 & NETERS


Haven't used LightWave 3D in years. At least not as a primary application. I downloaded the newest version today; 30 day free trial, and after fighting with unpacking it, I was able to get a quick render in. Had to play around with the settings, but finally achieved a render where the textures showed up.

The object file is wonky in LW, but works well in Blender and Cheetah 3D. I'd also like my renders to look like the preview in the main window.


Forgot to mention, I download LW on my laptop. Renders fast though. No lag time when moving things around, so all good there.


Gonna keep playing with the settings. See if I can achieve the same look and 'feel' from the main display window. If not, will not be upgrading.
