    One more thing, if you really want to integrate an external renderer, try Embree.
    It's on my todo list, but if you do it, I don't have to ;-)

    This is the most crude approach there is, but it works and if you know C and C++ this should be the fastest way too.

    Cool I will try this tonight. What do you think for Lightwrap++ ? Good idea to make it too?

    Yeah, don't worry it will not take several years to make it but several months will suffice to bright a plugin and depend in my free time too. So we let to wait and see for new Lightwave.

    Well maybe you must use for interior as portal to speed up and you will be impressed !

    Lightwrap is nice, but it's not complete and not really maintained as far as I know.
    Michael Wolf is on the forum, he can tell you what's working and what not.

    I would go the crude way ;-) It's closer to the metal and you'll learn more about the inner workings of LW.

    This tutorial shows how you can speed up interior renders dramatically, using Portal Lights.

    Thanx for the tutorial, I have used portal lights in lightwave, I never thought of trying them in cycles for some reason.

    That is because it is a brand new feature. Or well relatively new. I am not sure exactly but it was fairly recent.

    If ever you'll have free time, Redshift developer are always looking for developers to create plugins.
    Redshift for LW would be really useful as its a gpu biased render engine. Juanjo might be too busy with houdini plugin.

    http://community.thefoundry.co.uk/di...=118437&page=1

    "Hello,

    In all honestly, Redshift had been flying under the radar for long enough where no user group can really be “blamed” for not asking for a plugin.

    To give you a better idea of “why Houdini and C4D”: The main reason for Houdini support was the tons of XSI users that went to it. And that some very high-profile companies have been asking for it. And the reason for C4D is that since Redshift’s day 1 there have been tons of C4D users asking for it. Some through the forums, others through email. That is a clear indication that there’s a market for it.

    And, now we have this lovely MODO thread! smile In the next several weeks, we’ll do a bit of planning for the year and will probably start asking around for MODO developers. If you know of any good ones, please ask them to contact us directly.

    Thanks

    -Panos"

    The best thing that you can do is post in the developer section of the Forum if you get stuck.
    Other people that know LW / SDK can help too.

    @samurai_x : sorry, I don't have time for redshift, I dedicate myself to Lightwave first (and then maybe to port with Appleseed too) and then later in modo if all go well, I have my projects so i do in priority.

    @creacon : Ok as always, it is necessary as usual to manage myself, it will be long I will tell you if it works.

    They just released cycles 4d. The licensing seems affordable.
