LightRay3D Is Back

At hdmachina.com

Update Your Bookmarks

And Spread The Word


This product is under development.

We would like to announce to all registered users that LightRay3D has a new home here at hdmachina.com.
A newer, re-coded from the ground up, version of the software will be soon available.
Not much to disclose at the moment but we will keep you informed as the development phase progresses.

LightRay3D v1.4 is now available for FREE!

Although an older product, it is still used by many registered users for game modding, file conversion and other purposes. Some sites distribute binaries from unknown and suspicious sources containing all sort of malicious software while others distribute the trial version which is actually useless. So, we decided to make the original older version available to all for free. This distribution contains the update (v1.4 update 1) and all the extra plugins (game file importers/exporters etc.). The SDK and RAYscript can also be found at the bottom of this page under Resources.
Known issues:
LightRay3D was coded for older systems and graphics cards (although it will still install and run just fine on newer OS such as Windows 8,8.1,10). You may experience selection rubber band and viewport refresh issues with modern graphics cards and drivers.
This and all older versions are UNSUPPORTED.
Don't forget to register after installation else many features, such as exporting, will be unavailable.
You can find the registration codes at the product description below.
