View Full Version : Tutorials for LW11.5 render

04-02-2013, 11:28 AM
Hiya all,

I've just upgraded my copy of V8 to 11.5 and I've been looking around for some tut's on rendering - setting up GI for interior and exterior archviz stuff (+camera settings). Does anyone know of any decent ones around - free or commercial? Is the rendering the same for version 10? If so I can widen my search :)

Also, I've downloaded the sIBL loader plug-in and it hangs when if first scans my content folder. It gets to 100% and then I get the spinning beach ball (Mac LW & 10.8.2).

Thank you,

Rebell Hill's tutorials are the best tutorials I've seen for coming to grips with LW's render engine. If you want to advance your knowledge further, look at "Animated Radiosity: flicker free global illumination" ($19.95 USD) at cmivfx.com. They have a 50% off sale going on right now.
