View Full Version : U/B Or CFM

I have been running Lightwave 9.2 on my dual 2.7 gig G5 for sometime now with no problems to speak of. Is there any advantage to running the U/B version 9.3 versus the CFM 9.3 on my G5?

Rendering is quicker with the UB. And I'm finding, that pulling points around on models. Is also more responsive. But most of my favorite plugs are still not UB.

So. I'm using both versions. On my Dual 2.5 G5. Rendering and texturing with the UB version.

At least on the G5, you have that option.

More easily able to run multiple instances of UB, and also UB is more tied into the OS. So you've got applescriptability in UB lightwave now, as well as the ability from LW to launch applesripts, other applications, or do terminal commands.
