NewTek Releases LightWave 7b

Latest release offers AltiVec optimizations By John Virata
NewTek has released a maintenance update for the its LightWave 3D version [7] that includes speed enhancements and AltiVec optimizations for Apple G4 processors. LightWave [7] was announced and released Aug. 13 at NewTeks user event during SIGGRAPH.

NewTek returned from SIGGRAPH 2001 to work closely with both beta testers and end users to find out what areas of the software could benefit from additional work or enhancements, and, in a few weeks, the update has been finished and made available to all LightWave [7] users free of charge. According to the company, LightWave 3D plugins are working more smoothly than ever, and the enhancements made for the AltiVec engine for the PowerMac G4 make LightWave 3D "incredibly fast" on that platform.
