hi all.

I don't know what's happen at luxology. If lux guys be working in lw8 or another 3d packet (I heard about MECCA) or don't.

I really would like see LW8 or project MECCA get this improvement . I think you guy would like too.

:: Option to use "along normal" as move and rotate points and polygons, and every possible tools to use it. (there is a plugin to move point along normal)

:: Add Edges

:: 3D paint

:: Virtual Mirror to perfect symmetry (like Mirai and Wing3d). LW symmetry have some bugs.

:: Sub-pacth with suport to >4 points

:: Improve UV to work better with Sub-Ds

:: Viper with suport to UV and weights

:: Improve particle system to work fine with liquids and smoke inside another objects.

:: Possibility to pause render like After FX and a display to show render progress (who have 1 PC only. knows what I mean)

:: More UNDOS to layout

:: ADD Edgetools, Edgebevel and Quicksaw to modeler


As more easy I make a composition in viewport as speak english.

Here is some images. I think that will fine LW or LUX project come with it.


EXECUSE MY POOR ENGLISH :(

Some things I want to add :

-Highlight selection faces ( very often i havn't selected all the faces i want )

-2 little sliders for clipping planes ( near and far )

-Switch for grid snap settings...If there's no better Autosnap ( on the Fly ) tools ( la Rhino or AutoCad)

-A little toggle for the perspective viewport for switch between differents user's points of view (because we have no cam in modeler )

-Same thing for lights--> switch between differents lighting setup.

Yes, very needed, indeed. But a marker dropdown would be better. To keep it clean.

wireframe color is just implemeted, you select some poly, go to Detail/sketch color and choose color.
than go to palette near the name of view, and under triangle choose color wireframe, than you see polygon selected changed with color choosed.
