Download of OGO_Hikari

General precautions
1. Because this plug-in is ray tracing plug-in, be sure to enable the reflection and refraction ray tracing options.
(Its also a good idea to enable raytraced shadows too)

2. When using solid color and SSS, the overall look of the material changes by its "real" size so be sure to adjust the preview size prior to making adjustments to the settings.
In addition there is also the need to adjust the "Standrd distance" with an envelope to take into account any animated scaling or sizing of the surfaced object. This is also true if using SSS and "Inside depth".

3. There are some limitations when both sides of an object are surfaced with SSS (increased render times or use of texture).
Please try to limit the use of this plugin to objects using the traditional glass trick of an inside and outside surface with the normals facing in oposite directions.

Demo version limitations
The plugin is fully functional until the fixed date shown in the "Key code" window.
When this date has past, editing of parameters becomes impossible.
In order to edit surfaces made with an expired demo version one must obtain a key code.
So for the current demo version editing is possible until December 31, 2001.

In the case of a subsequent demo version (say until January 31, 2002) one will be able to render but not edit surfaces made with a previous version.

About Ver.1.22
Improvement of algorithm of OGO_NoiseReduction.
Made the handling of an ambient light in radiosity processing the same as the LW main body.
Add three kinds of lighting methods of OGO_Hikari exclusive use newly.(OGO_Kougen of a custom object)

About Ver.1.22B
There was not the problem that occurred when used Caustics of OGO_Hikari for a point light(or, spotlight) in shut air space.
When used Caustics of OGO_Hikari for simple soft shadow, there was not the problem that occurred when there was the surface which did not assign a course of a ray OGO_Hikari.

Fixed a bug of volumetrc coordinate processing.
Added new parameter and new algorithm "Lights tracking" to SSS.

About Ver.1.28
I improved it to operate on LW8.
I added inside plugin to cooperate with OGO_Taiki.

About Ver.1.28b
Improvement of calculation precision.

About Ver.1.29
Fixed a bug of multithread.

About Ver.1.29b
Speed up.

Supported LW9, but be incomplete.

About Ver.1.30b
Corrected the problem that occurred with version 1.30.

The problems that are known at present

LW crashes when uses a procedure to have an item of "Noise Type" or OGO_Waves for volumetric texture in LW6.5B when executed a save of an object or a copy of shader.
There is a cause of this problem in LW6.5B side.
(this problem does not occur in LW7.x and LW8.x.)
User of LW6.5B please warn it.
