Would it be possible to add another visibility option to Lightwave Layout...
I'd like to see an n-th polygon visibility option, why?, well, bounding box, is fast and all, but it's hard to tell which way objects point (add a direction pointer/line to the bounding box visibility aswell when your at it), Vertices visibility often turn your seen in an incromphensible point cloud, and Front Face WireFrame is still too heavy...
Give us an option panel to go with that so you can choose this visibility mode to show, for example, every 8th polygon on a model, or every 40th(handy for heavy car models) or whatever...

Also, bring bounding box view and all the other viewing options to the modeler aswell (handy for layers...)

Also, could it be possible to be given the option that when selecting new layers, or add some layers to you layer selection (in Modeler) that it remembers what layers where selected in the background? Same for background layer selections?

Thank you

Instead of every n-th, how about a type of bounding box that would pretty much act like a wrap? And you set the sub-divisions? Like collision detection box in videogames.

That would work, a bit like how your animation setup in Character studio looks like...
