Hi Everyone-

I just made the leap from Lightwave v5 to Lightwave v9. Holy Cow the interface has changed a lot, but I'm getting used to it now. Looking forward to using all the new features. The node editor is pretty cool but its a little frustrating to figure out how to do some of the things I did with ease with the earlier version. For instance, I'm just trying to get some raytraced shadows and reflections in my scene and can't seem to figure it out yet. If anyone can give me suggestions, please do.
Thanks!

Hi, echomedia, and welcome. Find Render tab at the top of GUI and select Render Globals. Check the options you want there. Have fun.

Hi Echomedia! Welcome to the forum. I got my start with LW 5.0, and I thought the change from 5.0 to 6.0 was big. I can only imagine how you feel going from 5.0 to 9.x!! Good luck getting up to speed. :D

5 to 9. That's a big jump! I got into LW at 7.5 and alot has changed since then.

Hello, echomedia, and welcome, I'll be making the jump from 5.6 (mac os 9) soon's I get a job.

I'd be interested in you letting me know your impressions as I'll be probably going through the same thing.

Hey there echomedia! Hey there echomedia!

I'm sorry. I couldn't resist.

Anyway, welcome aboard the :lwicon: train. I'm still at v8.5. Someday, when I'm rich and famous, I'll upgrade.

Happy modeling and beyond! :D

And, Betty, when you call me
You can call me Al!"

Sorry. Couldn't resist.

Welcome, Echomedia.

I was wondering when somebody was going to catch this. :thumbsup:
But, AL really is my name. It's short for Alan, and all my friends call me AL. I'm not Paul Simon, HaHa, but I do like much of his music.
