1. This Full HD video is showing TrueArt's TrueLoad plugin for previewing 3D objects on disk prior loading them to LightWave.

    You can preview whole object, or layers, surfaces and parts separately.

    It's part of TrueArt's Modeling Pack:
    http://modelingpack.trueart.eu

    It's available for Windows 32/64 bit.

  2. This Full HD video is showing how to selectively reflect objects.

    It's using TrueArt's Node Library
    http://www.trueart.eu

    When ray is cast by reflective surface Extended Spot Info Source Item ID is set to item that did it. We can extract it and compare with Item ID obtained from Extended Item Info. If they are equal we can switch material to transparent one, which will result in ray passing through it without detecting geometry.

  3. This Full HD video tutorial contains installing process and basic usage of TrueArt's Global Materials plugin
    http://globalmaterials.trueart.eu

    It's advanced plugin system enhancing LightWave 3D application by special global Node Editor where you can control all object's all surfaces.

    In video you can see how to install plugin, adding necessary buttons to Layout user interface. Then how to spread special Global Material intercepting node to the all object's all surfaces.

    If surface has nothing added to Material input, Standard material is made, which is connected to Global Materials intercepting node, and output from it is plugged to Material input in surface. But if surface has some material already, it's disconnected, then it's reconnected to newly made Global Materials intercepting node, and output from it to Material input in surface.

    Then there is showed how to play with GlobalMaterials Node Editor with instant previewing in VPR.

    LightWave v11.0 is required.

  5. This Full HD video is showing how to control surface Smoothing with f.e. weight map or animate transition from flat normal vectors to smoothed normal vectors. Which is more powerful than smoothing groups.

    It's using TrueArt's Node Library
