-===== This has been re-worked for 2018.0 but we haven'​t updated this page yet. Working on it. =====+This node has changed drastically due to the new shading model using by LightWave 3D 2018.
  
 +It modifies the weights for the component channels used later on by shading and allows you to boost them (changing their contribution to the material) as well as changing their colours using blend modes.
  
-The material tweaker is a combination of the [[tools:​booster|Material Booster]] and the [[tools:​materialblender|]]. 
- 
-It splits up the material into the component channels and allows you to boost them (changing their contribution to the material) as well as changing their colours using blend modes.

-  * **Diffuse/​Specular/​Reflection/​Refraction/​Transparency** This defines a foreground colour/​value to be mixed into the respective channel using the blending mode and Opacity +  * **Diffuse/​Specular/​Reflection/​Translucency/​Soft ​Refraction/Refraction** This defines a foreground colour/​value to be mixed into the respective channel using the Tint and Boost. 
-  * **Blending Mode** This is the blending mode to use for mixing +  * **Tint** This defines how much the respective material channel ​is tinted by the colour.
-  * **Opacity** The strength of the mix.+
   * **Boost** This is multiplied with the channel colour/​value to boost it. Values lower than 100% will lower the contribution of the channel.   * **Boost** This is multiplied with the channel colour/​value to boost it. Values lower than 100% will lower the contribution of the channel.
   * **Material Transparency** Activate this is the material contains transparencies and you would like those be evaluated for radiosity.   * **Material Transparency** Activate this is the material contains transparencies and you would like those be evaluated for radiosity.
