    Thanks, I started this scene in LW9 or LW10 but I didn't have enough RAM for the textures in order to render at a high resolution, but now with a much newer computer and 32 GB of ram I finally...

    Thanks for the feedback, I don't mind the critic I actually agree on both counts. I know a few things I could improve for the visuals, but after spending 2-3 days of rendering the scene in 4K I...
  3. Earth - Day to Night (first video after a long absence from Lightwave)

    It was a long time since I posted here, I have managed to stay away from Lightwave for several years while doing a career within the University as a scientist/researcher.

    I wanted to refresh my...

    Use displacement mapping on a disk with a normal map like this?

    What kind of detail do you need? And please show us the results after you finish the project :)

    I think that CC is slower only because it creates more polygons per "level". Someone can correct me but normal subd scales with level^2 but CC scales by (2^level)^2.

    So when using CC you can lower...

    What is the bit depth of the image? Does QT handle alpha channels for example?

    CAD software experience as a modeller

    I have been using LightWave for many years now, but recently I had to learn a bit of CAD, Solid Edge ST5 to be precise. The purpose was to model a few items for 3D printing.

    After a few hours of...

    Maybe the person asking you is not aware that it is not normal to get the "raw" files for free after a project is done.

    As someone mentioned about giving them a baked version, also freeze the...

    Definitely interesting, math is something I have slowly forgotten since I took the exam during the first years of my masters. :thumbsup:

    Thanks, that helped a bit.

    But what I am after is an explanation of how the polygons should be placed? In Vray they have this example (were the liquid volume should be bigger than the glass) but...

    Tinted glass with colored liquid inside.

    What is the correct way in Lightwave now days to model a tinted bottle with a colored liquid inside?

    The geometry has to be closed for the dielectric node to work?
    Single sided polygons only?

    Great visuals! :thumbsup:

    I would love to learn more about animated compositing, I will definitely look through the behind the scenes later.

    That makes much more sense, I was probably just confused since this was a thread about mirror balls.

    I am surprised you get better results with a fish-eye lens, could you explain more?

    I would imagine that, you have to be very close with the camera with a fish-eye, and then the reflection of the...

    That is smart, didn't know about the node editor inside the procedural texture list.

    I'm glad I now tried to enable HT once again, there must have been some new driver update which allows the dynamic Intel Turbo-boost over-clocking even if only single thread process is running at...

    Interesting, that is a huge difference! I must try it myself in Lightwave before I believe it!

    Did you properly disable HT in bios or did you just reduce the number of threads?

    Maybe you loose that much if you only use 4 threads while you have HT enabled in BIOS as you suggested me to test. I found this in a 1 year old article were they used only as many threads as the...

    My CPU only has 4 cores, i.e. it can only calculate 4 things simultaneously.

    Hyper-threading gives you an additional 4 virtual cores which helps with prioritizing tasks if you are doing more...

    I rendered this benchmark while doing some other Bullet simulations on one of the cores (hence only using 3 cores for the benchmark).

    Bullet Dynamics on Instanced objects

    Maybe I have missed this, but is there a "trick" to enable Bullet Dynamics on Instanced objects?

    In my case the objects are spherical so the dynamics could be calculated using the simple "sphere...

    This approach of projecting a super wide angle fisheye would also work as a cheap backdrop for your scene (when you do not have 360 degree env.map). (modern...

    3D Printing a Lightwave model

    3D printing is becoming more and more popular, even allowing textures to be printed on the surface of the object in color.
