  1. Apply natural, variable shadow blurriness.

    You can add a determined amount of blur to shadows that use a shadow map but this is a fixed amount of blur across the entire shadow. How would you simulate a gradual blurring as the distance from...

    Thank you dpont and gar26lw. I always follow-up when I get help. Here's the setup that gave me something that is the closest to what I wanted -- showing the actual rendering of a test object. The...
  3. Occlusion in conflict with Diffusion Image Map

    When I try to use occlusion on a surface that also has a diffuse image map applied, these two elements affect each other adversely. Perhaps they were not meant to work together but I won't know...

    OK. I managed to get the results I wanted by making eight or ten slices (see picture). Very tedious to figure out exactly where to make the cuts so that they could be adjusted to within the...

    Subpatch Image Distortion

    Is there a way to make an image not change it's shape and size when an object is converted to subpatch? See attached picture. This is the lower part of a stapler. The metal plates (in gray) is an...

    Ureka! Thank you again "MonroePoteet," (this set-up works for me). One last question: Surfacing with nodes in Modeler does not display. I can only see the texturing I've created in a Layout...

    Thank you, MonroePoteet. With your help I've made some progress. I was still perplexed by the blank node thumbnails. I clicked around until I hit the "Options" button and then hit "Preview...

    I tested the TGA image format in an image node and I got the same results as when I used BMP. I loaded a marble image into the node, and it properly appears in the parameters box on the left. The...

    I've gotten more suggestions than I was counting on but it takes time for me to fully understand each technique. I experimented with the Mixer node and the attached diagram shows my first result. As...

    Thanks. It's interesting, however, it's still not as flexible as using a slider or numerical input to change the position of one image over another. That's because if (in my example) I wanted to...
  11. Clipping Images Instead Of Clipping Geometry.

    I'm not understanding how to clip away parts of a projected image without clipping away parts of an object it's projected onto. The diagram attached illustrates this. If you take a polygon (A) and...

    OK. Thanks for the input. I went back to experiment and this is what I found. I've attached a diagram to illustrate it. The first pair of circles represent 7 points along a disk. The idea is to...

    "Neither of which are in LW 9.2, I think..."
    It looks like you're right -- I don't see "Axis Scale" -- only Center Stretch and Center Scale. I tried them, even saw a tutorial on them before...

    "Oriented Scaling"

    I'm trying to find a tool in Lightwave 9.2 that I know exists because I saw it demonstrated in a YouTube video but I didn't make note of it at the time and now I need it but can't find it. It's a...

    Thanks for the reply. Instead of buying a later LW version I was wondering if I could go cheap by purchasing just a plug-in that would be as good as the native Lightwave Chamfer (if such a plug-in...

    Can't find the "Chamfer" smoothing tool

    I'm looking for the "Chamfer" smoothing tool. It doesn't seem to be in my LW version (9.2). I already know that v9.2 is ancient to most of you but I go all the way back to v4.0 -- and back even...

    Thank you, BeeVee.

    Yes, the option is where you said it would be, however, when I select the option it doesn't work -- the cages stay visible. I won't worry about it. By the way, I learned of...
