are there generic environments in lightwave 11 that I could load in?

Similar to Modo's generic environments or do I have to build hem my self?


Thanks

Now that is very interesting.

The reason I ask is because I am playing around with Bullet and wanted some thing in the background. Ive seen my friend use modo and he just pops in these environments.

But I will for sure give this a try. Thanks for the link.

I think the lux team has developed a philosophy of drag and drop content assets and presets, and they are doing it well...You have to set thing up in lightwave with a little more work of assigning your own collection of textured environments or backdrops,hdrīs etc, nothing impossible thou.

Noteable, newtek actually provided new texture environment gradients in the latest lw version, but it really isnīt that much of glory.

Maybe not such big deal, think they asume that people knows of the Sibl
plugin, but I think newbies most likely donīt, and thatīs why they should improve textured environment and assets and provide some stuff in content.

Well said. The pluses and minuses of the LW plug-in architecture. Plus: cool things can get done. Minus: let the other guy do the development. Strategy: do constant research on third-party stuff. Long-term result: LW eventually integrates some of the good third-party stuff.
