LightWave™ gives artists an extremely powerful renderer and a fluid modeler that makes it a natural for visualization and design. From early sketches to finished renders, LightWave's unique workflow provides flexibility, and lets you be creative—no matter what you do.

Edging polygons and forms is easy with LightWave. The shift camera can lock off the horizontal perspective, allowing nice straight uprights. Artists also gain access to LightWave's unique radiosity caching system. Radiosity can now be rendered at reduced resolution and applied to the full-sized final render. Locally or across a render farm. Output higher quality with even faster render times. Artists can also use the animate radiosity caching option for almost limitless movements of lights, objects and surfaces. Flicker-free and networkable. Bonus.
