DreamLight’s New SNUB-Launcher Makes LightWave 3D ScreamerNet UB Mac Friendly

WOBURN, MA – December 31, 2007 — DreamLight® today announced the release of DLI_SNUB-Launcher™, DreamLight Interactive’s ScreamerNet UB Launcher, an Aqua GUI front end that interactively builds the necessary command lines to launch LightWave 3D’s ScreamerNet UB standalone, batch and network rendering command line component. DLI_SNUB-Launcher’s interactive interface makes configuring and launching LightWave 3D’s ScreamerNet UB much more Mac like, user friendly and far less error prone than doing so manually.

DLI_SNUB-Launcher is available for immediate download from the following URL:

“I created DLI_SNUB-Launcher while updating my Mastering LightWave ScreamerNet for Mac OS X (DreamLight.com/insights/10) white paper and tutorials for ScreamerNet UB. After writing up the explanations for how to configure and launch ScreamerNet UB manually in Terminal, I felt the process could be made more Mac friendly. So I set about writing an Aqua GUI interface in XCode to interactively build the command lines and launch multiple ScreamerNet UB render nodes for standalone, batch and network rendering, making the entire process painless.” said Michael Scaramozzino, DreamLight’s founder.
