    the spot info node is missing in lightwave 2018,
    That's why I made Global Input node.
    It's available in TrueArt's Global Materials 2018
    http://globalmaterials.trueart.eu
    and in TrueArt's Node Library 2018
    http://nodelibrary.trueart.eu

    LW 2015.3 has completely different structure used by nodes than LW 2018.x..

    It can be imported, but it does not work as expected.. See example screen-shots:

    Global Materials 2018 has Global Input node, which has exactly the same outputs as built-in Input node:

    (the only difference is in name of node, and it's located in TrueArt's Node Library in node tree hierarchy)
