'My' LightWave has grown up and is playing with the big boys!

Don't you forget your best mates though...

Not to be too much of an arse about this, but the images on the web site don't seem to do a great job of showing off the feature-film quality rendering. The buddha statue looks....strange to me. Something about the surfacing looks wrong. I'm also concerned by the small print that the screens are simulated. *How* simulated is simulated?

Not the best sell, imho.

agree too.
Product looks very interesting, but imho it's better to show something awesome, this is an important debut.
