    Maybe a useful tip:

    Before rendering, set your Display SubPatch level to match the Render SubPatch level. This will make LightWave skip that long 'mesh freezing' process for each frame.

    Nice! Thanks Erikals, I'm going to try that at home tonight.

    I'm guessing there may be a legal reason we don't have Blender here. The studio is (rightfully) very particular about EULAs and...

    Took another look at this in ZBrush. D'oh! Using wrong tool. I did a quick test using simpler geometry and found that Reconstruct Subdiv is the tool that does what I needed.

    Just glanced at the specs: 500mm...over 19-inches??? Is that correct? If so, that's amazing.

    Is the 10S able to maintain correct proportions at that size?
