Hello every one, I found this site as follow:

This Is My questions ....
If I install all those free plug-ins to my Lightwave, Is that going to slow down my Lightwave ?
Are they good plug-Ins ?
any advise on free plug-Ins sites ?
Thank you very much

No, certainly never been aware of it myself and I have many, many free plugins installed.


Are they good plug-Ins ?

PICTRIX is pretty much acknowledged as a plugin God and the free
plugins are pretty much indispensable. As are most of his shareware ones.


any advise on free plug-Ins sites ?
Thank you very much

The only Modeler's plug-in class that might affect general speed of LightWave is custom polygon handler plug-in class. AFAIK Pictrix didn't make any of this kind. Interactive and non-interactive tools-commands are never affecting general speed of Modeler.

Layout is different story. But Pictrix is making mostly (only?) Modeler plug-ins, so there is no need to describe it in details in this thread.



any advise on free plug-Ins sites ?

Another, not mentioned by others, way is looking in NewTek Forums > LW - 3rd Party http://www.newtek.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=31 Make sure that sorting options are showing threads from Beginning.
