Newtek shipping new LightWave 11

NewTek’s new LightWave 11 is now shipping


NewTek is now shipping LightWave 11, the latest version of its Emmy award-winning, professional 3D modeling, animation, and rendering software. LightWave is one of the top-tier professional 3D suites and LightWave 11 incorporates many new features, such as instancing, flocking and fracturing tools, plus Bullet Dynamics, Pixologic Zbrush support and much more.

LightWave 11 is ideal for all 3D markets: film and broadcast visual effects production, game design, illustration and architectural visualization. Mikael Burman, technical supervisor at Massive, a Ubisoft Studio based in Sweden, says, “Our cinematics team works in a mixed 3D pipeline most of the time. And the updated I/O tools in LightWave 11 (FBX and MDD/GeoCache)–combined with the new Unified sampling, colorspace-aware Adaptive sampling, and updated shaders, such as the reflection blur–allows me and my team to deliver fast, artistic, and adaptable content.”

01 - LightWave 11. Has powerful new features including Instancing and improved IO support.

The new LightWave 11 retails for a suggested 1,495.USD, and is available for Mac and Windows. You can learn more here.
