LightNet: Cloud – Onsite/Offsite Render Controller

LightNet: Cloud

Joe Justice has announced his new render controller is available for public beta.

LightNet: Cloud takes a totally different approach to rendering. It uses a FTP server to store scene data and output frames. Render nodes can be on the onsite network or offsite connecting via the internet. The settings are simple and there is a diagnostics tool to help setup. Scenes are sent to the sever via a Watch Folder. All you have to do is drop a scene in the folder and everything happens automagically.

TreesDesigner gets an update.

Plugin developer Pawel Olas has recently updated a few of his excellent tools for LightWave 9.6 and 64 bit LightWave.  In particular, his revolutionary TreeDesigner tool has had an update, having the separate LeavesGenerator tool now integrated and added as part of the tool itself. Also updated are Smartmorph, a powerful morph animation toolset that adds grouping, non-linear morphing, driven-key and texture control to the way that morphs are animated in Layout.  RandomCloner is also now updated in 64-bit.
