SIGGRAPH 2014: LightWave debuts 'Ultimate 3D Bundle'
BURBANK, CA — The LightWave 3D Group, a division of NewTek (, has introduced the Ultimate 3D Bundle, a special promotion that pairs a new license of LightWave 11.6 with OTOY’s OctaneRender 2.0 software. With a price of $1,595, the package represents a combined savings of $500. Registered users of LightWave 10 or earlier can save up to $300 when upgrading to the bundle, which is priced at $995. The Ultimate Creativity Bundle is set to end September 30th.

LightWave 11.6 provides tools for 3D modeling, rendering and animation. OTOY’s OctaneRender 2.0 is a fast GPU-based renderer. Together they give artists a powerful solution for creating, animating and delivering projects with a high level of photorealistic detail. 

The combination results in 50x faster rendering speeds compared with traditional CPU-only rendering. In addition OctaneRender 2.0’s workflow integrates seamlessly with LightWave. OctaneRender 2.0 is included as both a plug-in for LightWave and a standalone program.
