"Over the next few weeks and months we will continue to elaborate on LightWave development ..."


Hopefully 2016 it is not sometimes in a far far far future.

Put a Bookmark in my browser to check regularly too. Now we just need it to have regular updates.

Architectural changes are the most stressful, but at least they have a comic book.

So...who are these users or will we ever know?

"Another thing that I considered very important was to add several experienced LightWave users to the team who came from various different backgrounds and to integrate them directly into the software development process." - Rob Powers (via this new wonderful blog)

Matt Gorner and Lino Grandi being the most visible ones.

hrgiger, okay. I was thinking there might be some top secret people lurking in the shadows who might remain nameless. Or not. :)

"...several experienced Lightwave users..."

Just as they do a good job..I donīt need to see their faces..hehe.
I am curious though, to what extension these users need additional programming skills?...or is it just their experience and user skills that works as a testing playground? and maybe that is the way it fitīs with the collaboration with the others in the team?

Jennifer Hachigian besides being a LightWave artist was responsible for pipeline integration using mostly python if I remember it correctly. There's even a couple plugins by her in the Assets page at lightwave3d.com . Her expertise in TV production combined with technical and programming skills is a good thing if she has to communicate with developers. She understands what coding is and knows what's expected from that code.

By the way, I hope I'm remembering well all the above since I didn't double check it. There's videos from SIGGRAPH and the LALUG to prove me wrong.

Anyway, she's a good example and I for one am so glad she's there helping to taylor LightWave to make it ready for the demanding scenarios like the ones she's been dealing in her career.

I think they are there to tell the coders how features should work from a user point of view and to be understandable for users without math-phys colleges.

I think _was_ is the operative word. According to her LinkedIn profile she left in December. Pity.
Another example of LW users turned LW dev is James Willmott
