G2 Edge Tools
In the real world, surface reflection and transparency changes as you view from different angles. LightWave includes its own plugin to help create this Fresnel effect.
G2 includes and expands upon this idea, allowing more versatility with better control and on more attributes than LightWave. Even bump mapping can be boosted or suppressed on object edges! And of course, G2's effects accurately preview in realtime.
G2 also adds view dependent color changes for surfaces like metallic paint, iridescent tropical fish, pearlescent jewelry, and anti-glare sunglasses.
