    LightWave 3D 7.5b is available for Download Now!

    NewTek is pleased to announce the release of LightWave 3D® [7.5b], a free update to registered owners of LightWave 3D [7.5]. In this update you'll find major enhancements to LightWave®'s already robust script language, powerful new surface blending tools, support for DV devices as a preview display, and a network renderer for Linux. You may download the update from NewTek's web site at http://www.newtek.com.


    LScript is enhanced with dozens of new commands, classes, and functions, and now allows C programmers access to LScript's Universal Requester tools. "LScript 2.6 is a massive update, with lots of goodies," said Steve Hurley, of Worley Laboratories. "It wouldn't be unreasonable to have called it 3.0, considering the major increase in power it offers to users to customize LightWave to their production needs."

    The maintenance update includes Splinamate, a spline-control animation feature useful for animating objects such as hoses, tentacles, and more. The user can select how many control points the spline will have and whether the object will be "stretchy." SurfMixer is a new surface blending shader available from the Surface Editor, which allows blending the surface characteristics of two or more existing objects to create the surface characteristics for another object in the scene.

    "SurfMixer is fantastic, a very valuable surfacing tool," said Jonny Gordon, of Zero Gravity Entertainment. "I used to have to morph objects to mix surfaces, and even then there was nowhere near the level of control as SurfMixer. And surface thickness gradients, how much do they rock? Saves SO much time stuffing around with weight maps, especially useful for translucency."

    Hm, try Layout. In the readme file no changes in modeler are mentioned.

    The improvements are in Layout only.

    Yeeeeaaah!!!! Come to papa, oh yes I can feel the love. Uuuugggh but I have to work now, no time to play :-)

    Just one question? I've customised my menu configuration in 7.5. Can I still keep that and get access to the extra stuff in 7.5b?

    just install over present installation
    scan for plugins again to add the new toys
    and adjust menus to add the toys to the interface

    can anyone confirm the build numbers after patch please

    I feel like I must have done something good in a past life... can't imagine what it must have been!

    Sweet hit Newtek!
