                      REQUEST FOR DISCUSSION (RFD)

                  comp.graphics.rendering.lightwave-3d

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Group Name:     comp.graphics.rendering.lightwave-3d
Status:         Unmoderated
Summary:        Discussion of all aspects of Lightwave 3D, a 3D modeling
                and rendering package from NewTek Inc.
Distribution:   World
Proposed by:    Daniel J. McCoy (djmccoy@netcom.com)


This is a formal request for discussion on the creation of a new
newsgroup that caters to NewTek's Lightwave 3D, a 3D modeling, 
rendering and animation package.  The discussion period will last 21 days 
provided no outstanding issues result that prevent the move for a CFV.


CHARTER
-------

This unmoderated newsgroup proposed as
comp.graphics.rendering.lightwave-3d will be used for the discussion of
NewTek Inc's Lightwave 3D, a 3D modeling and rendering package.  Topics
appropriate to this newsgroup will include but are not limited to:

	* General questions and answers on using Lightwave 3D.
	* Product announcements relating to Lightwave 3D and third party
          products that benefit Lightwave 3D.
	* ARexx macros to enhance Layout and Modeler usage.
	* Optimizing options to get the most out of Lightwave 3D.
	 
As Lightwave 3D is scheduled to be released for Windows, WindowsNT and
SGI platforms by the end of the year, discussion of primarily Amiga based
topics should NOT be posted to this newsgroup but directed to an
appropriate Amiga newsgroup.  The same should apply to Windows, WindowsNT
and SGI related topics.


BACKGROUND
----------

In the past, Lightwave 3D was only distributed with the Video Toaster
which limited it's use to those living in countries where NTSC was the
video standard.  However, Lightwave 3D is now also available as a
standalone package for ALL Amiga owners.  In addition, NewTek Inc. 
announced at Siggraph '94 that Lightwave 3D will be ported to Windows,
WindowsNT, and SGI platforms by the end of 1994.  Lightwave 3D is used by
a great number of professionals and hobbyists for a wide variety of uses
and projects.  TV shows such as Babylon 5, seaQuest and RoboCop are
examples of where Lightwave 3D is used.


RATIONALE
---------

Currently, there is a mailing list dedicated to Lightwave 3D with a
subscriber base of approximately 500 users with an average of 25-30
messages a day.  Since the release of the standalone version and the
announcement at Siggraph, interest has grown and so has the mailing list.
Due to subscriber responses, it may be appropriate for a new newsgroup to
be created to take the place of this mailing list in an effort to expand
the user base and information sharing on Lightwave 3D.

It has also been expressed by several subscribers that don't have Usenet
newsgroup access that perhaps a mail gateway can be created for access to
this newsgroup.  I am unable to provide such a service, however I would
like to hear from anyone who can personally.

A new newsgroup of comp.graphics.rendering.lightwave-3d is more fitting
to what Lightwave really is (or at least part of what Lightwave can do).
Although Lightwave does allow for raytracing and could fall under
comp.graphics.raytracing, comp.graphics.rendering.lightwave-3d was
suggested by a member of group-advice@uunet.uu.net.  It is hopeful that
this new rendering hierarchy will pave the way for future new newsgroups
catering to the other rendering packages.


CROSS POSTINGS
--------------

This RFD is being posted to the following newsgroups:

news.announce.newgroups
news.groups
comp.sys.amiga.graphics
comp.sys.sgi.graphics
comp.os.ms-windows.apps
comp.graphics.raytracing

and the mailing list,
lightwave-l@netcom.com.  

Discussion will take place in the group "news.groups" for a period of 21
days.  If there are no outstanding issues, a Call For Votes (CFV) will be
posted, after which an independent third party will conduct the vote.

This is a second draft of the RFD now with a new proposed newsgroup name
that appears to be accepted by quite a few discussion participants.  If
all goes well, we can proceed with the CFV.  This time around, this post 
should also be posted to comp.graphics, which was missed the first time
around.
