db&w Tools

The db&w Tools are a free collection of small plugins for LightWave 3D.

They've been written out of personal need, due to user suggestions, as a playground or to complement our commercial plugins.

We hope that you will enjoy using them ;)

Nodes

Notes

As a general note, the nodal editors in LightWave 3D treat both vectors and colours the same way. Both are three floating point values and may be used interchangeably.

Additional

  • Sequencer - turns sequences of numbers into a pseudo-random distribution
  • Time Info - returns the current time and frame

Colour

Experimental

  • Sticky Front UV - stick a front projection to moving items and, optionally, render the UVs for a compositing tool

Materials

Math

  • Ratio - split a value into two values using a ratio
  • Remap - remap values from one range to another
  • Schlick's Approximation - a quick fresnel like node with sugar on top

Scalar

Spot
