I’m no genius, and I haven’t been following this as much as I should, but I have made a few observations from the Luxology website:
They do have a renderer, because there is a shaded object in one of their images; and it is apparently a radiosity render.
Their renderer FINALLY supports subpatch wireframe-shaded renders, as you can see in the small image. I actually wrote the turntabler.ls Lscript/Plugin to allow us modelers to export wireframe-shaded turntables; it looks like that will be a thing of tha past.
Apparently you can select edgeloops, as shown in one of the other UI images.
I see that the nomenclature of ‘band’ has been replaced with ‘loop’, I just hope it can do these things:
- Artisan-like sculpting
- Evaluate a LW subd mesh, and convert (tweak its points to align the surfaces) it to a standard catmull-clark subd; because I hate ‘re-tweaking’ LW subd cages just because they can no longer open up and edit the core to adhere to industry standards.
