I knew I shouldn't be leaving briefcases of used fivers lying around... People will get the wrong idea :-)

For those who may be interested, though, here's a quick example. This is a LightWave render. The left cuboid has just got a colour map, the middle is colour plus a specularity map, the right hand cuboid is colour plus a 100% luminosity map.

One swift click of the plugin and over to EID to bring the XAML file in:

So that works quite nicely, as you can see. We're a bit constrained by what XAML can do (it's a bit unsubtle on the luminosity, as you can see, unlike LightWave's tasty scalar luma), but we're expecting advances as time goes on.

Enjoy :)
