LightWave beta released

NewTek today released an open beta of LightWave, its 3D modeling, animation, and rendering package. The latest release adds native support for Intel-based Macs, and includes support for AppleScript. The software offers modeling, animation, dynamics, volumetric rendering, particle effects and a motion picture quality rendering engine with unlimited render nodes. The open beta download is available to all registered owners of LightWave 9, and is accessible through the NewTek online registration system. LightWave 9 is priced at $800, or $400 to upgrade from previous versions. The company also says it will release the final Universal Binary version for free to registered LightWave customers, once the update is completed.
