Looking forward to 9 Ė the render speed is what I most long for as shorter render times canít come to quickly! 

What the **** are they talking about 'capture' the 3d model?

Am I missing some concept here? Why not just create a file type everyone can save to?

That will be the homerun that I need, send a pdf file to my customers with a 3D image that can be rotated, create exploded views, edit lighting, add materials, etc.
Since I use Solidworks 2006 and Lightwave 8 this tool comes handy, I hope LW9 can be part of the supported formats.

Would like to know what formats they intend to support in Acrobat 3D, Shockwave, Quicktime, etc.

Will be interesting to see now they have macromedia's portfolio

Quicktime used to do that kinda thing with QuickDraw 3D...but that was long ago and only one file format was supported.

It looks as though it captures the model through the OPENGL window ! which means that it should be able to capture from just about any package !!!

Just looked at manual, no mention of Lightwave :grumpy:

It's an implementation of Right Hemisphere's Deep Explorer. Find more information on that and it may answer any questions about LightWave compatibility.

edit:

No guarantee, but it claims to support LightWave


And here is a "how to"

It sounds like it's cheaper to buy Acrobat Professional and Deep Exploration, rather than Acrobat 3D

Why not use the FBX plug-in for QuickTime? This allows your clients to view whole scenes, animations and models inside their QuickTime application, and also allows them to zoom, rotate and otherwise manipulate your scene with no other software necessary.
Oh, I nearly forgot: it's completely free!

Universal 3D or .u3d any other programes allow you to export out to this formate other than Deep EX.. being universal and all one might think it would be fairly common. :hey:

Poetry in Motion will (if they ever release it) solve all the problems of mankind. :bowdown:

Acrobat Professional and Deep Exploration bought separately are a cheaper solution.

Lightwave and Quicktime plugins are not there. I found an old LW one and exported a file, but for the life of me can't find the quicktime plugin.

Help?

There are ways to do this already very easily with nothing more than a Java capable browser, i.e IE or Firefox etc....

A number of Java3D .lwo and .lws exist, you can also make selfcompressed
.lwo's in .exe's that spawn a OGL preview that can do the same thing.
Here's an example of a Java3D .lwo loaded into a HTML page.
(I've been doing similar for many years)

I've played with it and it's as simple as pressing print screen on lightwave and paste in acrobat...it's ok, but I've been using shockwave for some time now and I'll keep using it for now.

Redbull, how do you make these Java3D .LWOs and .LWSs?
