Here, I demonstrate just one of countless ways in which the cage deformer takes the new updates of LW 2015 and augments them substantially for the animator.

This looks amazing, Ryan. You are really opening doors for LW CA users. The 3rd Powers plugins have added a new dimension to Layout and it's great to see you pushing the boundaries so creatively.

Here's something I discovered recently after installing the LW 2015 trial:

If you navigate to the download page of the 3rd powers plugins (given to you when purchasing the plugins), and have another user install the tools, while they can't activate the plugins, the deformers will still operate for the purposes of scene compatibility. This means you can indeed collaborate with artists who don't have the plugin as well as network-render with the tools on systems that don't have the license. All the license does is allow you to edit the cages/lattices, it doesn't prevent you from using them.
