The update also provides a true 3D motion blur that mimics live-action film, along with new modeling and selection tools for improved workflow.

Registered owners of LightWave V.9 can update to the new release for free.

Version 9.2 includes: improved depth of field, which offers more realistic results and realtime preview; a new photoreal, 3D motion blur, which mimics the blur captured on live-action film; Global Illumination and Radiosity improvements to provide faster and higher quality renders, including the new Final Gather mode; and new material nodes that duplicate real surfaces in a simple one-step manner. Improvements have also been added for creating accurate glass, liquids, metals and skin.

New anti-aliasing technology is featured in V.9.2, including a new pass technique and sampling patterns that allow an artist to produce better results in less time.

Registered owners of LightWave 3D [8] or earlier are eligible to purchase an upgrade to LightWave V.9 for $495. On July 1st, the suggested retail price for a full license of LightWave V.9.2 will increase to $895 with PDF documentation and $995 with the printed manual set.
