Woow, i read manual, it's really cool tool.
Distancing(3d) effects are incredible.

p.s. Our firm will plan new budget for 3d-software soon, i think to put LW to list and several plug-ins too

Didn't this program come out years ago? Then disappeared?

Great Walfridsson, keep your plugs comin.

I remember that Truespace had or has something like this built in, but even thou it´s now free I still only have Truespace lying there, mainly because of the horrible UI.

About 3d sounds, this got me thinking about a way to create sound with
particles, and how to approach that.

Would be interesting to have particles that has lets say a specific tone or multi tones mapped to every single particle and when they swirl or moves along wind forces they change their sound accordingly, and the tones
resonance,volume etc could be altered also accordingly to velocity etc.
A kind of synthezeiser with particles in 3d.

Edit...well Maybe Newtek should get the distance between particles parameter in there first:)

Great ideas Prometheus :)

Now freeware.
Thanks for the small amount of people who supported it :)

Well done. I recall reading about a similar feature built into Cinema 4D and was wishing for the same functionality in LightWave.

Any plans for a Mac OS X version?

Now freeware.
Thanks for the small amount of people who supported it :)


That is incredibly generous of you. Thank you:thumbsup:

Yes thank you very much!

As for that car rigger. Are there any plans to update it

walfridson thank you for a very good plugin.

I was hoping you could add something to the plugin. an option to play the sound file every time there is a key frame not just the first one. like a gun shooting.

Also an option so that it plays one file at key frame as soon as it ends it plays file2 looping tell key frame2 then it plays file3. like a gatling gun starting up, firing, then slowing down.

this would be a great add on to a very good plugin.
thank you for your time.
