Fprime also shows reflections and refraction....Fprime is worth every penny ...

why doesnt lightwave do this nativley.. ????????????????

i shouldnt have to pay a few hundred dollors to get another plugin to do something that
LW should do anyway...

It is weird, but most other programs don't even have a "viper". Limited region/render selected should suit most texturing needs aside from initial setup anyway :)

yes it is rubbish & should really be worked out. FPrime is worth every penny but it's not part of Lightwave & shouldn't always be offered as a solution to Lightwave's problems.
