WINE + Lightwave


Hi there,

I'm considering running lightwave under Wine.

Does it have loss in performance, or at least a big loss?

Have anybody tried it?

Thanks

You will have a loss of hair when setting up WINE to run Lightwave. Of course all programs run in WINE will be slightly slower. If you add up a small loss of hair and a small lost of performance, I say it is big loss. I suggest using VMware 5 or higher to run Lightwave. Maya can run in Linux natively.

In this case even if I save my hair, won't they turn white first?

ah mean I haven't played a lot with vmware, but the last time I did, it used generic video card drivers and was extremely slow...

From what I have read at the WINE website, you should experience no loss of performance. They actually recreate all the windows dll's, but give them .so names, so it runs the program just like Windows does.

yes, that's what I thought too, but perhaps because its based on the free code of windows and not on all of it (really is this the reason? ) Wine has not the same performance as windows.
Here are the benchmarks..

I had lightwave 7 running in something a few years ago...i think it was either wineX or crossover. It mostly worked, although some plugins did not. I didn't notice any huge drop in performance.
