You find more information about the individual plugins at:


Version 1.8a:

  • fixed an issue loading settings if multiple plugins save their settings in the lws and use the same name for a setting (such as the Simple Colour Corrector Pixel Filter and Image Filter in the same scene).

Version 1.8

  • fixed compatibility issues with the pixel filter in LW10
  • fixed an issue with the Cache node when rendering using VPR in LW10
  • Added a Scene Comment master plugin (It requires TextWrangler as well as the matching command line tools to be installed on OSX)
  • Added the (experimental) StickyFrontUV node which can create front projection UVs for compositing.
  • Those stick to the item if it is transformed. Deformations are not supported.
  • Added a Colour Space node to convert from one colour space to another (LW10 only)
  • Added a Colour Space Converter Generic plug-in to convert from one colour space to another (LW10 only)
    You can copy and paste colour values throughout LW using the following shortcuts (on the colour swatches):
    Shift-RMB : Copy
    Ctrl-RMB : Paste

Version 1.7

  • Added the DepthLimiter Pixel filter. It clamps the maximum distance stored in the depth buffer to increase the quality of depth Anti-aliasing.
