Newtek is now shipping the latest version of its popular 3D modeling, animation and rendering tool, LightWave, with numerous new features available. LightWave 11, previously unveiled last year, builds on previous LightWave releases. LightWave has been used by lots of big-name companies, including Ubisoft, the BBC and NASA -- in particular, a number of big-budget films have made use of the LightWave tools, including Avatar and The Adventures of Tintin. This new version incorporates new features such as instancing, flocking and fracturing tools, while also adding new bullet dynamics that aim to create a more "natural-looking random pattern" for explosions and the like. There is added support for a variety of new controller types, including the PlayStation Move, and support for Pixologic's Zbrush tools. The new tools are available to purchase for $1,495 from the Newtek website. Previous LightWave users can upgrade to version 11 for $695.
