    Tricky to know. Lightwave v11.6.3 was before they unified the renderer so VPR wasn't always the same as F9.
    You could try world co-ordinates and see if that fixes it?

    I don't think you're necessarily preaching to the choir of all LW users, but maybe in these forums you are? :) Mostly annoyed and irritated customers post here, which is why I don't visit so often.

    What I mean is... we have a clone hierarchy function, so it should work with all hierarchies really. Whether they are bullet, or characters or anything. It should work really.

    In my opinion, it should work... cloning a hierarchy should re-make connections, rather than break them. Worth reporting nonetheless I reckon.

    Did you try deleting (or backing up your configs?) and then trying with fresh configs?

    Report it, with content and steps to reproduce it, then they should be able to fix it. Might have been an oversight?

    Thanks Mike... what a good year it's been too. Love the open development and interaction with your users.

    Some more brilliant tools to play with... Merry Christmas! :)

    I'm currently using LightWave 2019 with Unreal Engine 4 and the Unreal Bridge that was put into LightWave is BRILLIANT!

    It sounds crazy, but there are so many reasons I love the LW renderer. Unlimited render nodes is brilliant. We've just moved to Arnold, thanks to Autodesk pulling their usual tricks, it costs us a...

    In the Surface Editor, if you RMB a surface there's a "Convert to Layered Nodes" button.

    It doesn't convert your textures into full PBR materials (as that's nearly impossible).

    When the OLD and legacy way of texturing, with ancient shader models cannot convert to PBR, or anywhere near close... then how would you automate it?

    Or set your VPR to overlay mode, and then you can see your handles in VPR as well as Opengl.

    But, yeah... Ctrl F9 is your best friend to toggle VPR on or off.

    The coder is still there. It was Mark Granger who "left".
    He coded the Interpolated GI and the edge rendering. Antti did the rest I think.

    Yep, exactly my experience too. It's a shame people have been worried, or scared by the thought of upgrading... but I find the new render engine, which is SO SO similar to Arnold in many ways, really...

    Hahaha, really?? Even just one of those, GPU rendering, took Arnold years to get right, and still it's not perfect.

    Just trying to be realistic I guess... I wouldn't hold your breath for a GPU...

    I don't think they need to change anything, aside from the image as Tim suggests. But anyway... At least you now know :)

    Yeah, this... the cast shadows option causes the actual light to be a complete light 'blocker'. So, another light behind it will cause shadows to be cast by the light geo. Never used it, but I'm sure...
