Lights, Dynamics, Animation Lightwave 3D - 3
You can think of the Backdrop of your scene as a blue-screen behind your scene. You have several options for what will appear on your blue-screen. On the Backdrop tab in the Effects dialog box, you can set a solid color, a gradient, an image or use one of the Environment features such as SkyTracer which creates some interesting cloud effects. On the Volumetrics tab, you can create Volumetric effects such as fog, fire and smoke.

Getting Help

Because LightWave has been popular for so many years, it has an extensive online community and many websites for LightWave and associated products. Besides the programs's help system, the NewTek website has searchable online documentation and free technical support. There is also a large section of the site dedicated to LightWave containing written and video tutorials, a member forum and free downloads.
