So 11.5 renders blurred chromatically abbreviated under lit images, I think there is such a thing as pushing realism too far

Quote (approx) Mr. Powers
" i'd like to think of LightWave as the Swiss army knife of 3d packages for one's pipeline ".

( Cheers, but Victorinox army knives are normally Red, & are great steel.)

oh wow I didn't get that at all how could I have missed it, oh yes maybe it was because all of the parts of the swiss army knife appeared to be in perfect working order and none were broken or badly bodged together

Wait, doesn't a Swiss army knife do many things, but none of them well? Can you use that little scissors for anything, seriously? Probably better to compare to a Decathlon champ.

Hello Sekhar,
Well it saved me in a mountaineering accident in Kriti (Crete) back in the 90's
The saw tooth set is awesome! And the scissors can actually cut finely,if used right.

P.S. No,I didn't cut any limbs off at the time
Anyway it's his analogy I liked!

And you posted that why exactly?

Sorry your upset with something I meant to reinforce Rob Powers statement,that of

" i'd like to think of LightWave as the Swiss army knife of 3d packages for one's pipeline ".

But then again i don't carry a Jaded outlook, cos it's too much excess baggage.


P.S. This is my 2nd Victorinox. I lost that Kriti one!

Seriously, yes, those little scissors are GREAT, and usually super-sharp.

Now, a Leatherman®, THERE'S a piece of crap.
