View Full Version : electricity dynamics, texture shaders

03 March 2002, 05:49 AM
does Lightwave 7 support maya-esque texture shaders? where can i find some outdoor environment shaders if it does?

second question, does Lightwave support lightning like Maya dynamics? i'm doing pre-production research and planning for a cg project, and i need to do an effect similar to the power coupling in star wars (the electricity between the two engines in the star wars pod racers). can i easily do this in lightwave? in maya, it is very easy - just click two points and create lightning. is it that easy in lightwave?

okay, i've played around with lightwave and figured the shaders out.... its a yes.

any word on the lightning?

There are plenty of plugins out there that can easily do this. Just do a search for them at
