    Post "Speaker" objects in Blender.... yoicks!

    Perusing the Blender manual (sadly, looking better all the time-- the manual, that is), I stumbled across a reference to 'speakers'. Since it was coupled with 'Lamps' and 'Cameras', it piqued my interest.

    --holy crap. This is MADE for VR scene construction.

    Now, it may not be perfect: it's weirdly reminiscent of LW spotlights in terms of parameters (and I'm pretty sure sound doesn't act like light in very many ways), but it exists and can be improved.

    So, since this is the Feature Request forum, I request LW implement 'speaker' objects. If they happened to be compliant with Unity, that would be great.

    Look up the old "Soundwave" plugin for LW, it offered similar functionality, IIRC. Always kind of thought LW3DG ought to purchase/license that plugin for LW inclusion (adding Mac version shouldn't be too painful).

    (edit) Hehe, just noticed same plugin was brought up in your other 3DAudio/VR thread as well.

    Just took a quick look: while it seems it would certainly work in renders, my interest is in creating environments for Unity.

    I note that one of export formats supports Unreal, so maybe it would.....
