Re: Running Lightwave on WinUAE

Hi @muadib. So yeah, have an FPU. Imagine FPU load fine. I have 32MB of ram. Will give that test a go. I might take a while to give feedback, got to recap this 1200, I really have left it for too long and don't want to suffer damage.

Re: Returning user

Re: Running Lightwave on WinUAE

Hi muadib, I downloaded the preserved copy in the link you gave. Seems it is a folder with no need for installation. When trying to run the Modeler or Layout a windows flashes for an instant and then nothing. Any ideas as to why that is happening?

Re: 3D enthusiast from Devon UK

Hello Ross. Welcome. You are in for a treat. The Amiga is responsible for the explosion in desktop video and 3D graphics in the 90's. So you not only have Lightwave, but Imagine, Cinema 4D, Sculpt 3D, Truespace, Real3D, Alladin 4D and even the origins of Blender in Traces. Enjoy exploring.

Re: Magazines' tutorials

I see they are still around and just released a new version. Not sure it will be in the same league as the big guys, but nice to see they are still going.

OMG, I remember Real 3D. That was promising to be the killer high end application for Amiga. Goodness. Anyone use it?

Re: Amiga models objects

There might be some modern models that could be saved to an old lightwave format. Not sure how it has changed over the years. Obj might be an option to.
