Standard is still LightWave's main surface material for imported assets for reasons of compatibility with existing assets. It . New models are textured with PBSDF as the default surface. Standard is as far away from PBR as possible and its use should be deprecated. Surfaces using Standard will be less predictable and harder to manage than those using modern materials like Principled BSDF. A full explanation of the limitations and comparison of Standard in 2018 with previous versions of LightWave can be found on its page.
