I'm not sure if this is proper protocol - if I'm out of line, please delete the post...

There haven't been many sample renders since the beta was released. Render times are steep but man...the results are nothing short of stunning.

This is a cut and paste from the LW3D Yahoo Group

No idea :(
Still no English page up yet either.

I purchased Hikari simply because I want Taiki and it states (via the babel translation) that Taiki will be free to Hikari users because he doesn't want to manage multiple registrations.

Yeah, I found out about this when I bought OGO_hikari last week, then downloaded OGO_tiaki only to find I had full access to the plugin. Absolutely amazing.

I love how generous the users of Lightwave are. I was trying to explain this to one of my students today, who is an avid Maya user, that the community is self-progressive, and has reciprocal generosity.
