Thread: ???news about lightwave 3d next???

  1. #211
    Well even though jperk wasnt around when brad, allen, and stuart (and others) left, many of us were. And without going into the whys or whats of that situation which would clearly go against steve bowies rule and not a suggestion, i can tell since that time, NT hasnt done jack squat for modeling in LightWave and the people who left did so at least i got my rewritten modeler.

    You call magic bevel jack squat!?!?!??
    Full disclosure, I don’t know when that tool appeared.

    And it is equally true in that case that the underlying facts are a matter of speculation at best, and best left un-discussed here for that reason. (In my personal experience, those with the least scruples are generally quickest to air their version of matters like this, knowing that others will not stoop to it.)

    I can't agree that there have been absolutely zero modeling advances in the last 15 years or so, but would not quibble that Modeler hasn't seen a lot of love. I don't think you can properly draw a direct line between these matters, however (e.g., I can easily imagine other reasons for the Modo crew concentrating on modeling, and for its somewhat languishing in LW).

    Nevertheless, if you feel that LW modeling has suffered since that long ago split, I've no argument with your posting that. Decisions and events have consequences, and there is be nothing inherently unfair about implying that the split undoubtedly led to some negative repercussions. I do draw the line at attempts to characterize the basis for the parting of ways.

    No. Not really. It's all nonsense.

    Take a look at a comparative CMS analysis that includes Videolan (VLC) and Adobe Acrobat Reader as CMS tools.

    This jumped out at me as I was just looking at a Gartner magic quadrant graphic the other day for CMS. It looked nothing like G2's nonsense.

    The great thing about the internet is that any idiot can find another idiot's infographic to support an idiotic concept.

    Also. It doesn’t make any sense. Satisfaction and market share. Ok. Two metrics that can be measured (sort of). But niche and contender and leader and performer? What the heck!? How does an app that has poor satisfaction and high market share equal contender? That chart looks like a neural network tried to make a power point presentation.

    jperk, I have been under the impression that you are a young, wide-eyed, budding artist who is just starting out, and have been hanging around here looking for tips, advice, etc... Now all of the sudden you're some seasoned pro who has a deep profound knowledge and understanding all things LW, and even Newtek's history?... You, more than many others here, have better things to be doing with your time... Go work on your 3D skills son.

    If it's true NewTek or LW3G ran into a showstopper of some kind preventing them from releasing Next, then I am more than ever willing to wait for it, remaining loyal to them. I'd suspect whatever the holdup is it came from nowhere and they'd want to release it, but need to deal with whatever first. Again, that's just me.

    Oh, is THAT all? :eyeroll:

    +: it's been so many revisions since the original coders left, for both sides (except LWM ) I think we can safely feel they are different apps and move on.
