The faster AA is excellent (this wills ave heaps of time), what else was done as the description states enhancments to the render engine. Will there be more options for G.I? Maybe faster Radiosity or photon mapping features? Maybe save calculations options? FPrime intergration?.....Exciting stuff. :D

I hate to be the downer but I haven't heard any mention of other rendering enhancements slated for 8.2. Peter did mention that they're planning on having more than a few of these updates so it doesn't mean you won't see other enhancements in 8.3 or whatever. I'm sure we will in fact...

Hrgiger: If you read in the Lightwave 8.2 thread you will find Peter J mention this
Significant Changes to Render Engine!
It sounds like alot more then just an AA enhancement to me. :D
