For others that want to play, here are the benchmark settings used (low res).

For me, I've never installed Lightwave before and am not entirely sure where to even start. But that's something I'd like to figure out later this year. Finally! I'm still on the hunt for an OG package of the final version of C4D - been looking for years.

I can't get the render screen to play nice to render the scene via LW but using Shell via ScreamerNet to render as per walkero over at amigans instructions:

AmigaONE X1000, PPC, OS4.1FE- 17m10s

BUT this is not comparing apple to apples though as per the steps from post 1but still cool to try.

To do so make sure your using v5, open Shell and type:

xx:xx/Lwsn.fp -3 scenes/benchmark/Raytrace.lws 0 0 (x is location of your Lightwave folder)
