    We don't comment on future plans, but we would recommend that you please submit a feature request for the development team's consideration.

    Cheers, glad you're pleased.
    I second this praise. Your videos have improved my quality of work immensely.

    You are the hero Lightwave needs.

    Still learning

    Paul, I've been doing a little interior scene and I'm pretty happy with LW 2018 so far. Still learning the new stuff, but here's my image which took ~20 minutes to render on an older i5 4430S @ 2.70 Ghz with 12 GB RAM. And I'm not very well versed in doing interiors at all, so for a first try in LW 2018 this is ok in my book. I'll probably adjust some of my settings with the advice people have been writing in this thread, so thanks for that guys

    And even with that rendertime, I'll probably be able to bring it down a bit, since it's not fully optimized yet. I know there's a little noise in the image a few places and there's still stuff missing that I have to put in. All surfaces are Principled, no Standard materials at all. I've attached my settings and they're not that different than the standard settings, but I've adjusted the GI and Render settings some to get the quality where I wanted it.

    So I don't get the complaints since I never had my interiors looking like this in 2015 with a decent render time, and that was on a faster machine as well. Just my 2 cents...

    Hi I am trying out LW2020 and found this forum on speeding up rendering. I was following in your footsteps but noticed that I did not have Monte Carlo and was missing a few other things under Global Illumination. Can you share how to add these back into layout!

    Thank you[

    Yeah that stuff is long gone. Progress. You now have those two options shown in your screenshot. When setting up a scene using VPR I use Brute Force , but when doing a final F9 render I change it to Irradiance Cache using the default settings.

    Can you clarify whether you're rendering for animation or stills?
