Hello
Ephere Lucid is very useful plugin
i posted a request in ephere forum for a lightwave plugin and the developer replied :
"Thank you for the request. If there is enough interest we will look into it."
if you are interested please post requests here and in the forum : http://www.ephere.com/plugins/autodesk/max/lucid/forums.html

I wouldn't get your hopes up. I don't mean to be negative but there's such a small percentage of LW users to 3DS max users it probably wouldn't be worth their time. If you need fluids, there's realflow already and it works great with LightWave.

lucid is not only for fluid if you see the video
and you know that realflow is standalone software and did't have cloth and can't create sand simulation .
how you can create simulation with collision between cloth and fluid in realflow ? and you forget the price ?
it's easy to use and i don't think that all users need to create complex water animations ; realflow is good choice for big studios ; there is also Phoenix FD from Chaos Group but lucid have more features

Ditto

$00.00 ??
to
$000000000.00 ??

looks good.. Gpu or Cpu that's the question?

Maybe, if a 'BUNDLE' could be put together through the LW3DG dispensation

But ? Then again..................

the plugin based on nvidia flex : https://developer.nvidia.com/flex which use on gpu but the plugin i don't know

Creacon is working (in house) on this nvidia flex system.

its in the archive 2014/2015, ask him he a good waver.

and you know that realflow is standalone software and did't have cloth and can't create sand simulation

RealFlow absolutely does include soft-body dynamics solving (iow, cloth), and while the new Dyverso solver doesn't (yet) do sand-type particle sims (perhaps in 2016), the RF package includes other solvers that can do sand-type particle sims (f.e. Hybrido). The RealFlow package has many solvers available, for HBD, SBD, SPH, grid-based NS, etc. with most even capable of being wired up in ways that allow multiple solvers to interact simultaneously. The extent of RealFlow's solver coverage is actually broader and deeper than most of its competitors, esp. when it comes to specialized solvers, daemons, and external third-party plugin support.

But $199!! I know the Max community is larger, but I wonder how much extra work it would be to compile it for LW? Because that's a seriously good price, based on the limited view of the showreel.

Yes, I would get it for that price!

Don't forget that TurbulenceFD came to lightwave after lots of request from users. I'm glad they went for it. So hope this team does the same.

the plugins for realflow are very expensive
and the softbody didn't support surface with single face like plane ; all objects must have thikness and it can't simulate cloth ; cloth in lightwave is better
if we compare the features and the prices and what we need for lightwave ; lucid is very good choice
many users liked advanced placement but realflow is better on physics

I would certainly buy it at that price, just for the liquid stuff alone.

Price looks great for what it can do. Definitely picking this up.
