LIGHTWAVE RADIOSITY TIPS

Recently, I've been dealing a lot (...again...) with radiosity, interpolation,catching and all those things. I discovered a few links very interesting about that. Some of them are very known by the LW community.

 The most popular maybe this article at EXCEPT site. Not updated to recent versions of Lightwave 3D but the best guide you can find about the LW GI 'world'





Tips and tricks in RENDERGEEK site.






 A bit old but interesting thoughts and tips about radiosity at Foundation3D forum





Short but useful video about settings and results






Commercial videotutorial about free flickering radiosity with Lightwave 3D

DIGITAL SCULPTING SOFTWARE


Nice way of modeling is sculpting and then take your work to Lightwave and finish there the job.

ZBRUSH 4R7
Powerful tools, retopology and painting textures included...and GOZ connection with LW!!


ZBRUSH CORE
Reduced version fo 4R7, not such powerful tools as mentioned above but interesting


3D COAT
Retopo and texturing tools


BLENDER
The most competitive price (FREE!) and nice tools. Not nice texturing tools, but a lot of plugins to work with mesh... sadly not available in LW some of them like great retopo tools



SCULPTRIS
Nice for discovering sculpting... and also FREE!
