    They need rewrite.

    I have confirmation from the maker of IFW2 that no new versions, updates are planned in the future. Product is discontinued

    Sorry if I miss understood so IFW2 Nodes are incompatible with Lighwave 9 - 2015.3

    I use IFW2 Nodal textures in 2015.3.

    LW 2018, has new node system, which is incompatible with LW 2015.3 and earlier.
    Node compiled to LW 2015.3 and earlier can't be just like that recompiled to work in LW 2018.
    It requires time consuming changes.
    Node compiled to LW 2018 won't work with older LW.

    "New nodes", node engine in LW 2018 probably isn't backward compatible.

    Okay thanks, I thought that's what you mean but wanted to confirm.

    So that really sucks, Wonder what we are gong to do for procedural textures now that IWF2 are discontinued The native standard procedural textures in the node editor aren't enough and are very basic.

    Without Dennis plugins, especially SunSky all of the new LW features are not worth to go for me at the moment. Without IFW2 and vRoom ( Sensei replacement probably is in beta stage ) I must rebuild my workshop from the ground...

    So has Dennis's plugins been confirmed not to work in 2018 either. Oh man if that's so that's really going to suck! That is a huge loss in my opinion.

    Yeah the only thing you could do is get Octane for your SunSky issue.

    Procedural textures (the one that you set using T buttons and Texture Editor) are still existing in LW 2018.
    Discontinued are shaders, discontinued are old system nodes. New nodes replaced them both.
    I don't have IFW to check its procedural textures. Some might work, some other might not.

    When you load .lwo in traditional layer system, it's converted to new .lwo file standard (64 bit one, so no IFF chunk error anymore, I think).

    DP kit as well! Frankly, I see no point in upgrading then. I use one or both of those in probably over 90% of my work. I couldn't do what I do without them.

    Majority of DPKit nodes, if not all, are right now built-in LW new node system..

    But you have BSDF "shader" (as node) as default material.. for realistic rendering..

    Interesting! I suppose it would break all kinds of NDAs for you to show a screenshot of all the standard LW nodes from 2018.
