Hi all :)
Is some possibility to have shadows like with radiocity without radiocity? I mean smooth shadows near the background and between another package?

ok, I used light which has a negative value. Looks good, but maybe someone has a better idea?

you might also use an occlusion shader, best is to search in the forum for this term, as there are many options and much was already posted about this theme.

You can adjust the intensity of the radiosity as well.

You can also try adding a Domelight...Either you use the one native with LW9.6 or you can go to DPonts site (http://pagesperso-orange.fr/dpont/main_en.htm) and download DP Light which contains a bunch of new lighttypes for LightWave. There are many usefull ones in there!!!

Yeah dome lights, are nice.

Im using more and more of setting up scenes with a dome light
and two area lights instead of radiosity.

The dome lights are a little slow but still faster than radiosity.
dome lights are similar to distant light, but by changing angle value you
can control how sharp the shadow is supposed to be.
