This looks great but where do I get support for 7.5c??? I have posted my problem in the LW forums AND email tech support. I am a registered user but regularly fail to get ANY answer from NewTek.

Just wondering where in inspiration for the hair "fog" came from... Someone having a bad hair day..?

Cant wait for 8, hey that rhymes… Maybe a new slogan.

These are fun. In addition to the new functionality, everything is looking more organized, as well.

Hey Proton,

Nothing yet from the radiosity field (ptometric lights perhaps?), or
from the Modeler.
I still believe that the interface looks more than poor...



P.S. I read somewhere that they will present LW8 in Canada, in October 4. Any news about that?

Man Proton, I don't have time to browse the forums all day while at work! But with your incessent Screen Grab posts, I'm forced to check here every two seconds. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

I gotta say, so far everything I've seen in these latest screenshots have really pumped up my interest in this update to [8]. Save pose? Load Pose? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

And why don't we have a smilie off to the side that looks like it's about to explode?

Looks like dynamic bone parameters can be edited individually....that's nice.

If keyframe animation can be attached to dynamic bones and not just the other way around, we'll be in business. We'll be able to make little machines that can handle keyframe input (like a car's steering wheel & gas pedal), but whose final motion is generated completly by dynamics!!!

Looks like they've tied all those little panels which came with pfx as well as the new dynamics ones into the main obect properties box. Is this going to happen with all plugins now? Save leaving a trail of windows all over?

Looking really nice Proton, thanks for keeping us updated with LW8's progress! We seem to be seeing alot of Layout features (which is cool) but I'm wondering, what's happening with Modeler. I'm under the impression not much in the way of new tools/ features being added/improved to Modeler? Any cool screengrabs of new modeling features to show? :-D
Either way, its good to see those Layout sceengrabs. Thankyou!

I think they want to shock us with modeler's features close to the release :)

Looking great! Like the look of the UI too, plain and simple. IS that some sort of internal non linear animation settings I see in there? Pose and Motion save / load....

Can't wait! :D

Yes i too would love to see the surface editor.........
Did we get multiple previews like 5.6?

The interface looks much cleaner, although that's mainly from lack of the brushed look. Subtle but nice...

Can we change Interface Colours inside LW or do we have to play: "guess the numerical clipped colours" still...?

And please let me use Black!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At the moment, you can't change the text colour!, So when you use black, the panel makes the text invisible.... Making black useless..... (i.e you can't read surface names)

I notice there is a Window Tab, so does that mean we can
actually move panels around? The dark shadow around the buttons is cool, it gives the impression you can drag & drop?
