I am fairly new to Lightwave but I would like to see the scene file extended to store all instances of objects.

It seems strange to me to have to create multiple copies of an object to be able to have them in a scene with different surface settings.

It would also be nice if you clone an object to get its surface settings as a unique name (perhaps as an option)

Surfaces that override objects surfaces on a scene to scene basis would be neat indeed.
Embedded objects? No please. You would probably either loose ASCII scene files which is a major plus for LW or end up with _huge_ scene files.
Also, for larger projects, external objects are crucial, especially if you reference idnetical objects across multiple scenes.

Cheers,
Mike
