    When a software like Daz studio has a more advanced renderer than Lightwave you start to realize which state Lw is in, it's a sinking ship(or more like a sinking small boat).
    Thatīs the trick
    Thanks for explaining it well.

    The logic is that Autodesk didn't spend their time on a new renderer (they bought one). Newtek spent their developing time on a new renderer instead of just license one or use a open source renderer. The time could have been spent on all other missing aspects of Lightwave. Lightwave is just light years behind and with this developing speed they will never catch up. If you love convoluted workflows with no undo and no unificated work environment then LW is perfect.

    Luxcore for blender can also do this if you want to test.

    Thanks..cool, though a bit messy with the installation..I happened to choose the standalone and download, did not carefully read the the whole section in the page, just went for win 64 opencl.
    so it didnīt show up in the addons, once that was tracked, I managed to find it in addons..though I got an error...could be that I do not have the right redistributin packs.

    So a bit messy ..may try tomorrow again.
    The page to download the right version is a bit messy, I honestly do not know how to seperate the addons properly from standalone builds, etc...whatīs so hard about dividing it properly.

    But not sure you understand my point.

    You said that LW doesn't have as advanced a renderer as DAZ Studio, purely because it can't do spectral rendering. You seem to have brought up a load of other unrelated issues that aren't rendering related to smear the discussion.

    All I said was, Arnold (which is one of the best renderers out there) also doesn't do spectral rendering, and it's been in development for years and years.

    LightWave's new renderer is more than capable and I'm really enjoying using it.
