NewTek ships LightWave 3D 2018

NewTek LightWave 2018 screenshot NewTek, Inc., announced availability of LightWave 2018, the new iteration of their comprehensive 3D animation system. The software for Windows and Mac operating systems is available from January 1, 2018, and introduces new features for physically-based rendering, VR rendering, and more. It also extends the functionality of popular features like the buffer system, FiberFX, cel-shading, object deformations, and others. The new version offers a completely rewritten rendering, shading and lighting architecture for greater realism, accuracy and ease-of-use as well as expanded workflow for render and light buffers that simplifies compositing and offers more flexibility, including real-time preview of new buffers in any viewport using Viewport Preview Renderer (VPR). Using the new volumetric render primitives, artists can specify physical properties, Scattering, Absorption and Emission parameters, along with powerful node networks. New lighting architecture brings physical lights that can be optionally visible to the camera, and improved loading of IES web files to better match the intensity of real manufactured lights. The Surface Editor has also been overhauled for the new shading system with powerful node-based materials. The Layout View viewport in the Modeler shows the current camera view from Layout, and features fully interactive tools including Lattice, Smoothing, Array and Spline Bridge. Additionally, LightWave 2018 includes new enhancements to the VPR and introduces many additional new features and improvements such UDIM texture support, more supported presets, FiberFX, Unity 5 support, and more. LightWave 2018 for Windows and Mac OS is out now for 995 USD. Registered owners of any previous version of LightWave 3D can upgrade to LightWave 2018 for 295 USD through March 31, 2018.
