View Full Version : Question about painting by a Lighwave Beginner

03-23-2009, 03:09 PM
Hello. I've been taking a CG class for about nine weeks and I'd like to add more detail to my models. I've seen various programs out there such as Zbrush that you can use to paint directly on your model, but they're not free. Can anyone direct to some free programs for Mac where I can directly paint on my Lightwave 3D projects? Thanks.

Blender is free and has displacement painting. You can import and export LW objects.
3d-coat is very inexpensive and is quite powerful and supports LW the best.
Silo is also fairly inexpensive and has displacement painting.
All of these have Mac versions.
