NewTek LightWave 3D combines a photorealistic renderer with modeling and animation tools. LightWave also integrates with other popular production tools for 3D and for compositing, with support for a wide range of formats. Additional tools in the product package include unlimited render nodes,
hard- and soft-body dynamics, and hair, fur, and cloth simulation.
