LightWave v9.2 Open Beta Launch Information

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NewTek is pleased to announce that the LightWave v9.2 Open Beta program for the 32-bit PC, 32-bit Mac (PowerPC) and 64-bit PC platforms will begin at approximately 2pm CST on Monday November 06, 2006.

The LightWave v9.2 Open Beta program will be open to all registered owners of LightWave v9.0 educational or commercial licenses. When the program begins, all qualified applicants will need to log-in to their NewTek product registration account at http://register.newtek.com. If you are qualified, you will see a LightWave v9.2 Open Beta banner at the top of the page. Click this banner to read and agree to the NDA and provide your NewTek Discussion Forums log-in ID. Once you have done this, please download the software appropriate for your platform from your My Downloads page.

If you have not already signed up for a NewTek Discussion Forums account (http://www.newtek.com/forums) log-in ID (forums name/alias), please register for one (http://www.newtek.com/forums/register.php) before applying for the LightWave v9.2 Open Beta program. You will need this in order to access the private LightWave Open Beta Forums, which is the only place you may discuss the Open Beta program software until the end of the LightWave v9.2 Open Beta cycle. Access to the private Open Beta forums may take up to two business days after you agree to the NDA and provide your log-in ID.

Everyone interested in participating in the LightWave v9.2 open beta program will need to complete the process outlined above.

If you do not currently qualify for the Open Beta program, but would like to participate, you may still do so by purchasing a full version of LightWave v9 or upgrading an existing license of LightWave 3D to LightWave v9. You can purchase LightWave directly from NewTek online at http://shop.newtek.com or by phone at 1-800-368-5441. You may also purchase from your local authorized NewTek reseller.

LightWave v9.2更新與升級的訊息....
-------------------------------------------------------
October 31, 2006

Are You Ready?
We’re nearing the final stages of preparation for LightWave v9.2 Open Beta. Advancements made are complex and far reaching, so it’s taken a bit more time than expected... we are excited about these new changes and feel they are worth the time and effort. Improvements have been made across the board in key areas such as new advanced cameras, improved precision and performance in the IK solvers, new nodes, rendering, texturing, Modeler performance and workflow improvements.

Modeling
We’re excited to report that the changes in Modeler bring the OpenGL capabilities on par with the power that was delivered in Layout for v9.0. In addition, the speed of geometry selection and modification has been greatly enhanced due the development of a new system based on technology invented by NewTek's 3D development team. Taken together, these changes make Modeler much faster and more responsive, which sets the stage for a wide range of capabilities to come. All that... and a new set of Modeler selection tools await our Open Beta participants.

Rendering
Of course, we will always continue to push the envelope of development for LightWave’s outstanding render system. New improvements in this arena include: a new photo-realistic motion blur, accompanied by new anti-aliasing and adaptive sampling methods, advancing LightWave’s render engine to a new level of realism and quality when using the new cameras. In addition, radiosity has received the first in a series of scheduled enhancements; for this round, the Backdrop, Monte Carlo and Interpolated modes have been joined by a new "Filtered" mode providing faster results in some situations. Further, new control options are now available to fine-tune the look of the render. The latter includes a Phong setting which can provide darker edges and more contrast in the final image.

Animation
As you know, one of the key components in the LightWave v9 cycle is a re-write of the core LightWave animation system. One of the major aspects of this revision involves the ObjectID system. An overhaul of this area of the code has been long overdue and we’re proud to inform you that we have tamed this beast over the last several months. The ObjectID system manages how Layout tracks items within a scene, including how animation, deformation, expressions and other modifiers are linked. Simply put, a wide range of long standing issues have been addressed with this one core re-write, clearing the path for the advanced development of LightWave’s character and animation tools that we all hunger for.

Open Beta
We’re very excited about the improvements in this latest release of the LightWave v9 series and are anxious to get it in your hands. Keep an eye out for the official re-opening of LightWave Open Beta. For those of you who haven’t participated in Open Beta before the process is simple, as a LightWave v9 owner you automatically qualify for Open Beta. All you have to do is login at register.newtek.com, click on the Open Beta banner and agree to the NDA and download the software. At that point, you’ll receive an unlock key for the update and you’ll be added to the Open Beta forums.

Let the fun begin!

耶,準備好了嗎?
咱們經己接近為Lightwave 9.2發報公測的最後階段,新升級涉及到很複雜及漫長開發,它需要的完善時間較咱們預期的較長....不過咱們為新改變感到興奮,也認為它們是值得這麼多的時間及付出.所有改善橫跨到很多重點的地區,例如進階的鏡頭,功能及表現改良後的IK solvers,新節點,算圖材質,modeler的表現以及流程方面的改良等等.

Modeling
咱們興奮地告訴大家:新的改變會為Modeler帶來跟v9 改良後的Layout看齊的OpenGL能力.
另外,基於Newtek 3D內部開發的專利技術,在物件選擇方式及修改時的速度會得到很大幅度的增進.
同時,以上改變會使到Modeler更有效率及更優良反應,這些都間接使它能兼容的領域更廣.還有.....另一堆新的Modeler選擇工具待投入公測.

Rendering
無疑問,我們會馬不停蹄持續地推動Lightwave咱身的算圖引擎改良進程.在此階段的新改良包括:全新擬真相片級的motion blur,連帶有新的反鋸齒及取樣模式.新鏡頭的配合下把Lightwave的算圖引擎推上另一個更擬真及更高質量的境界.
另外,radiosity經己處在下回第一階段的開發進程時間表內,在該階段時,底圖,monte Carlo及Interpolated模式會加進新的"濾鏡"形式以提供更快的效果(在部份情況下).還有的是新的操控項數會開放作最終圖樣的微調,還包括一個Phong設定,它則能為最終圖樣提供更暗的邊位及更高的對比度(層次!?).

Animation
如你所料,V9循環中其中一項重點使命,將會是重寫整個Lightwave的動畫系統內碼.當中最重要的使命會是包含在這次升級版的"ObjectID"系統.唯此功能的內碼花去了頗長的時段,現在咱們很驕傲地告訴用戶們,咱們在過去數月經己馴服了這頭"怪獸".這個"ObjectID"系統將會負責管理Layout場景中如何去追踪物件,包括動畫,形變,expression,及其他的修改器都統統連結上了.表面簡單但要清楚,整個大範圍及遠期的開發都會因為這個內碼的簡單統一化,淨化了接著的角色動畫模組的更進階開發路線.

公測
我們興奮地獻上這個升級版的V9系統到你手上,故務請繼續注視著咱們官方重開的Lightwave公測區.給未試過參加公測的用戶:程序很簡單,只要你是Lightwave v9的擁有者,你便有資格成為公測一員.你只需要做的便是登入Newtek.com的註冊區.點擊上面的"公測banner,確認該份NDZ及下載軟件.此時段,你將會收到一個解鎖的key用於進入公測討論區發表.

讓快樂開展吧!
LW開發組.
