Okay it is more on Maya but Lightwave is mentioned in a small part near the beginning of the Maya 7 Review. However reading through it there sure are things would be nice but others show that not even Alias can get things working correctly.

Here is the part of the article


Tools
Poly Crease for Smooth Proxy is a new tool that allows modelers to control how much smoothing occurs between edges, similar to LightWave’s vertex weight smoothing. Creating smooth transitions between hard and soft edges is now easier and requires less geometry. This tool should be especially useful in modeling the intricate geometry of faces, but also for more industrial models, such as flowing aerodynamic vehicles.

I made a pdf and attached it to post.

Thanks Wizcracker, that was elegantly implemented and thanks for the interesting read.

Your welcome. It only took me a little while to hack it up in dreamweaver.
