I just noteiced this today. I am using 10.2.8 and lwsn -3 to render. Here is the problem: when I render within lightwave may shadows ( which i have set to a dark grey) render correctly but when I render in mode 3 they com out the default black. I have not tried lwsn mode 2 yet to see what happens but maybe tomarrow if I have time. I have to say that the weakest part of lightwave is it's network rendering. If anybody has seen this let me know.

If your not using The screamernet 3rd party controller. I would highly recommend it. You can download it and render on one machine to try it out. For a small free you can upgrade it to run more nodes. I can't remember how much it was but it's been well worth it.

You can start and stop individual nodes while rendering wich is really handy to keep your render going. or add and remove sceens. Or work in light wave while a render is going.

I'm not sure if this will solve your problem but it's worth a try.
