I haven't used lightwave for more than 2 years, and last time I have used it on my G4 Laptop, and a G5 (which are now gone) The issue I have right now is that I learned how to use the Hair/Fur plug-in called SasLite (Sasquash) from my recent time in college . But this time I own a PC instead, ever since my G4 Laptop killed by my cousin, and my G5 due to a huge power surge. (board, ram, HD, Video----ALL GONE) I am now currently using Windows XP Pro 32/64 bit (devided partitions) on a PC rig I built myself a year ago and just opened lightwave and decided to use saslite, but this time rendering a video, I tried AVI, MOV, BMP Sequence, ETC----All formats crash layout when rendering in Lightwave with SasLite. If I went Mac (Agian) would I still have the same problems???? Or I should put it this way- Is it Windows? or is it the program? Im planning on going G5 Quad- is it worth investing in that type of system, or should I go G4 portable so I could show my clients?
