LiveSet Gen. for LighWave

NewTek today released LiveSet Generator for LightWave, a free plug-in for LightWave 9 that facilitates the authoring of computer generated virtual sets. LiveSet Generator for LightWave provides a simple solution for the creation of custom, photo-realistic virtual sets. The software is designed for use with LiveSet, the proprietary virtual set technology found in NewTek's TriCaster STUDIO, Portable Live Production System, and VT[5] Integrated Production Suite.The LiveSet Generator for LightWave is available for free, and requires LightWave 9.

The plug-in allows users to create virtual sets with multiple camera angles as well as focal lengths, generate effects with real-time video scaling for virtual on-set video monitors, and produce projects with full support for anti-aliasing, reflections, refractions, radiosity, texture filtering, bump maps, and more. Users can automatically generate as well as assign LiveSet preview icons, and can render LightWave projects directly to LiveSet format.

"Until TriCaster STUDIO live virtual sets were only available to production facilities with deep pockets" said Andrew Cross, NewTek's executive vice president of Software Engineering. "LiveSet Generator for LightWave now makes custom, photo-realistic, virtual sets available to video producers at all levels."
