Better way, truly the best way...
is to learn mattes rendered in Vue and then use shadow catchers in Lightwave...
and if you must (but this works) export close foreground plants and trees and bring them into Lightwave direcly.


What does Vue do that Lightwave does not? And visa versa?
Vue is specifically designed for environments, BIG ONES...
Lightwave is designed for modeling and animating, just not 50 mile flythroughs and whatnot.
You'll have to learn both to really get into all the specifics though.

Hang in there.

If you're going to use Vue a lot with LW, check out Vue xStream. With xStream, you can create/open a Vue scene from within LW and render in LW. It's expensive, buggy, and all that; but, it's the best way right now to use the two together. I have xStream 6, and when it works, it's great. It's version 7.5 now, getting close to 8.

"when it works"

Well, that's one.
I'd still wait until it's a whole crowd cheering though.
