Since I don't have Open Beta forums access yet I posted this here.

Does anyone know if anyone is developing or re-coding plugins for Mac 64 bit Lightwave?

I don't think I can live without DP Kit etc.

Cheers

LWcad 3.5 is 32/64bit UB.
None of Worley's plugins are 64bit yet.....!

Lightwolf had plans to port his dbw-Tools, exrTrader and probably also infiniMap and Shadermeister to 64x Mac, but it seems to be quite complex to support Tiger, Leopard and SnowLeopard and unfortunately there were only a few people responding to his poll about the used LW and OS versions ( http://forums.infinimap.com/index.php/topic,423.0.html and http://forums.db-w.com/index.php/topic,424.0.html).
That said, he is also the one to port all DPont stuff!
In fact, he's nearly our (the Mac-Guys) only hope to get all these tools.
I don't even dare to ask him for a port of Sebastian Goetschs Color tools.
I'm considering to switch software or even platform ( :eek: ) when NT fails in adding such capabilities for Core-Mac. :bangwall:

Hi 3dworks,
have you ever got the 64-bit mac version of kray working? I have not at all. I belive this is due to an licensing issue.

the developer is working on it, just a small glitch.

Well that's good to know 64 bit plugins are on the way as it is a deal breaker not to have dpont's plugins.

To run the 64 bit LWs in 32 bit mode for plugin compatibility kinda defeats the object!!!

here a little update about 64 bit mac plugins:

kray 2.1, released a few days ago is running (fast!) under LW 9.6.1 and HC UB 64 bit.

the lastest maxwell plugin is 64 bit capable as well.

jovian color picker is also updated and 64 bit capable for already some time now.

exrtrader and shadermeister from http://www.db-w.com/ are being ported in these days - stay tuned.

please make sure this list is kept updated.
