Hi guys and great to be a back in the Lightwave world after a long break.

I need to create a Vector Displacement Map from Lightwave geometry so I can re-create and detail up in another app (Terragen).
Is there a work flow to do this and/or are there any plugins that can assist.

I know it can be done in ZBrush and Houdini and I believe MudBox but I would prefer if I could create the VDM's in Lightwave.

Thanks

If you are in LW2105.x or below, maybe you could use DP Vector Cast:
