I saw it on the call for French uses thread. Amazing work. I don't know if it is all LW or if he's using a non native renderer, but beautiful stuff.

Mostly LightWave and a bit of Kray

impressive, I especially like the interiors. Is it me or the product design section is empty? was curious to see some of these...

Hi all,
thank you very much to have an interest in my work,
Yes _ i used lightwave and LWcad of course for build my architectural scene, for render i used Kray ( this give me perfect GI and in some case i arrived to get same mood as maxwell render), ( Fprime for old render and sometimes i used Maxwell from maxwell plugin ( it see perfectly lightwave instances) for specific scene )) and rest are rendered with native engine.
Lightwave gives me a flexible tool, of course missing yet some extra tools and missing a simply or easy use of node editor for get true material behavior compared to Maxwell material editor.
Because material setup is 50% quality of render after is lighting and engine render that makes the rest.
just an info about the name of my compagny :5500k , it's the name of color temperature of natural light as 5500 kelvin degree . My work tries to approach photography and in some case it's difficult to get in because in architecture this is a lot of material with specific comportment and lightwave cannot simulated it, i hope in next Lightwave version ( LW12 ) Newtek will add some new engine and material editor.
Architectural scenes ( exterior and interior ) are everywhere , they are not only for Architect, you find it in video games, cinema ... and more.

for product design , i will put some image in few days...

Yes, you really need to be profiled by LW3DG. I think you should check on the development of the Lightwiki surface preset project http://forums.newtek.com/showthread.php?143047-LightWave-Preset-Scene-*-for-building, when it's all up and running perhaps you could contribute some of your basic surface presets. As you said, material set up is 50% quality of the final render.

Very impressive use of Lightwave. I like the exterior shots, especially the Chateau comps.
