View Full Version : Lightwave Camera

02 February 2005, 06:42 AM
Hi im new to lightwave (Have been using max for a while now) and I'd like to know if it is possible to render the perspective view (like u can doo with max and maya) without having to set up camera angles. Or is it possible to set the camera to perspective for example when u press Ctrl + C in 3dsmax, the perspective view becomes a camera, can I do this in lightwave?

Please help

I remember that someone made a plugin that would do just that, its available from FLAY.COM. I very much recommend that you go to, it is the website of record for plugins and news about Lightwave. (Its my homepage.)

Go there and look for the plugin...

Take a look here:
and download PViewMC (v2.3) and PViewGN (v.2.0).

Those tools ROCK! Rarely a LW session without pvgn.

pvgn does not work in 8.2 though...can anyone else confirm? * sorry I meant PViewMC

My statement is based on 8.2 so I'd have to say that's incorrect.
Works daily in 8.2 for me, no problems.

Please see my edit above. Is it just my installation?

Try PViewGN (v.2.0)... it really works perfectly with LW 8.2.

Yeah, sorry, I mistyped. PViewGN works great. It is PVViewMC giving me trouble. Does PViewMC work with your 8.2 too? It just crashes Layout when I try to use it on my system.

What is it?

Fez.. yup... PVViewMC crashes my 8.2 ... hopefully a fix on the way?:):thumbsup:
