I started writing LightWave plug-ins in late 1994, several months before version 4.0, the first release to support plug-ins and the first to run on the PC. This page, in one form or another, has been on my site since 1996, and you'll still find several plug-ins here that work with every version of LightWave back to that first one on the PC. I also included some of these as programming samples for the plug-in SDK.
Some of these are just curiosities at this point. They were originally written for versions of LightWave that are well over a decade old now, and they were compiled for platforms that are long gone. But when I refreshed this area of my site in 2015, I recompiled all of them for 64-bit Windows (using the LightWave 7.0 SDK) and tried them out in LightWave 11.6. The source code links point to the slightly modified source that I used.
I've gotten a lot of help and support over the years. My thanks to
and Kenneth Woodruff
for their advice and compiling assistance.
