    The shadow catcher shader does work great... but make sure you uncheck glossy reflections and zero out specular or it will act like a...

    Lightwave's native renderer produces excellent renders. I don't think anyone can really argue with that.

    Yes indeed, did that first thing after installation. Spoke to support and they are pretty certain it is a third-party firewall issue; my work has some redundant firewalls that might be blocking it.

    The new version looks outstanding! The interplay of lighting and the additional shadows / shading really add to the composition!

    Beautiful work!

    It's a very strong piece and the particle effects are very good... they just need that little extra work to composite better with the vehicle.

    Thanks for sharing your work... I am anxious to see...
