LightWave 3D 9.6

LightWave 3D® is a complete modeling, animation and rendering solution. Its native renderer is unparalleled and serves as the centerpiece in the production pipeline of many facilities both large and small. Render nodes are free and set up is quite straightforward. LightWave Modeler excels both as a subdivision surface and a polygonal modeler, fast, efficient and again, straightforward in functionality. In addition, an industry leading node-based texturing and shading system allows you to create any look you desire - quickly and easily. You'll find LightWave is the most complete and robust 3D system right out of the box anywhere at any price. It is a thriving, dynamic system, ever evolving to meet the needs of our users. We work closely on a day-to-day basis with LightWave artists so that we know exactly what you are trying to accomplish. The LightWave renderer is first class and infinitely easier to set up and use than any other, not to mention the fact that unlimited render nodes are free.

We take great pride in the fact that LightWave artists have won more Emmy Awards than those using any other package. We are proud of the fact that our user community is the most passionate, most active and most helpful in the industry. LightWave is more than a 3D program, it is a business, it is an art form, it is a film, it is a game, it is realistic, it is cartoonish, it is moving, it is still... it is whatever you make of it. LightWave is in the midst of a major renaissance driven by the needs of 3D artists worldwide. Vast improvements have been made to the system in the LightWave v9 development cycle. LightWave v9.6 boasts new capabilities, such as improvements to animation, rendering, and workflow, with FiberFX cloning, Layout snapping, and automatic drag-and-drop file loading. More than 625 feature requests and reported issues have been implemented and resolved between 9.6 and previous version 9.5. LightWave v9.6 is the fifth free update in the LightWave v9 series.


• FiberFX: Complete hair and fur solution for all platforms.
• Collada, FBX and OBJ I/O support: Improved compatibility with other applications.
• Enhanced IK and Animation Systems: Provides improved character animation controls
• IES Lighting: Accurately duplicate physical lights from manufacturers’ datasheets.
• Radiosity Cache: Unique animated and static caching with size multipliers.
• Photoreal Motion Blur: Artifact-free live action blur as if photographed with film
• New anti-aliasing methods: Greater control for balancing quality with render speed.
• New global illumination and radiosity: Easily create photorealistic scenes, sharacters and products while simulating the effect of real-world lighting in photography.
• Progressive previews for global illumination: Provide immediate feedback
• Implementation of state-of-the-art BSP/KD Tree Algorithm: Provides much faster and more efficient raytracing; bigger scenes render a lot faster.
• Improved multi-threading with dynamic segmentation: Insures maximum use of available CPUs, optimizing render times
• Speed increases many times over previous versions of LightWave: More efficient render times for today's increasingly ambitious high polygon-count scenes for production.
• Adaptive subdivision of a mesh based upon distance from the camera and visibility: Allows for effective use of system resources for workflow viewing versus rendering.
• APS Choice: Per Object, Per Polygon and Per Pixel: Provides the widest range of flexibility.
• RealLens Camera: Physically correct cameras allow recreation of any real-world camera lens for matching footage rendered in LightWave to real-world photography. (a must for compositing CGI and real footage together)
• New rendering technology produces scenes using arbitrary camera lenses and warps
• Improved editing performance: Create and edit your models and meshes faster than ever before.
• New screen drawing system in OpenGL: See the results of your changes faster than ever before.
• Catmull-Clark subdivision surfaces
• Native 64-bit support
• Provides complete operating system flexibility from work to home
• Allow you to tap into the full power of the latest advancements in hardware technology
