I HOPE this is FIXED in LW8!!!

this is the ever-present problem with image world when using hdr lightprobes generated in Lightwave (!) . There ends up showing a severe pinching on the horizon at 180 degrees, which DOES show up in the render and the reflections. So even if you use a backdrop, you get it in the reflections (see pic below, which shows render with the pinching behind the camera)

please see this thread for images which explain thoroughly:


according to Paul Devebec, this happens when a complete 360 degrees is not created in the lightprobe. this implies that LW is not getting the full 360 while generating a lightprobe. So, should be simple to fix, eh?

I've been trying for some time to work around this issue, and it's a royal pain (as in, impossible, practically speaking). Shouldn't have to, this should work, as the whole process is being generated within LW.

Please! I love Lightwave!
