View Full Version : View Port Renderer for Lightwave v11 query.

12-12-2011, 11:17 AM
At the moment I have lightwave v9.6 and don't have the view port render option as in Lightwave v10 and v11. Basically what I want to know is how does VPR work hardware wise? Is all the processing done via cpu, or is some or all of the processing done via the graphics card?

I might be planning on upgrading my gfx card and would like to know if all just cpu or not. If it is all cpu based then I might give upgrading my gfx card a miss.

VPR is cpu powered. GFX has nothing to accelerate there.

Thanks. If I upgrade to Lightwave v11 then I'll just stick with my current gfx card.
