Worley Updates Polk LightWave CollectionMinor release fixes bugs, improves interoperability
The Polk Collection offers 23 individual plugins for LightWave 5.0 and higher. These include Acid, a shader that allows for changing the surface texture and bump map based on effectors; Poke, a displacement plugin; Blink, for motion effects; Lens, for correcting or adding lens distortions; Wheelie, for rotating wheels automatically; Dangle, which automatically animates dangling chains and ropes; and several others. (A complete list with descriptions can be found on Worley's Web site.)
The new release fixes two bugs--one that would cause some settings saved on a Mac to be lost when opened on a Windows system; and one that fixes a load from scene issue that would cause Polk to lose some item references.
The update to version 1.0-HC is available now free for current users. The full version of Polk runs $199 and supports Mac OS X and Windows. For more information or to download the update, visit http://www.worley.com.
