Or they are going back to the drawing board after seeing what Modo 10 will offer.

That makes no sense whatsoever. Maybe Modo should go back to the drawing board and fix their crappy geometry engine after hearing LW next will have a new one. Now that would actually make sense.

Those are coming. Not in 10.0 but later.

10.0 is focused on games and vr tools.

When do you guys think LW NEXT will be released? I figured it'd be released this month or April because of the way LW3DG was trying to get people to upgrade to LW2015.
Just curious what people's guesstimates are.

I think most people are figuring on them promoting LW Next at or around Siggraph which is at the end of July. With probably a release later in the year. But there's no way to know for sure right now.

This makes the most sense. Which may also mean they are in crunch-time and really don't have time to communicate.
Bummer but what'cha gonna do.

they wouldn't just cut out the blog for two months without having it close to ready.

> they'll release it within a month

I have a feeling that they hoped to have it out by now but I assume that they want it to be as stable as they can make it before release considering it will have a new render engine so likely a few bugs are holding it back a bit. I get the feeling it will be out soon though.

Stable is good. :+)

Plus a few much-needed fixes, such as fracture and 64-bit dynacache ...

Thats all fine with me, more chances for us to participate and perhaps influence the development too, to some degree I reckon, based on what is revealed in the development blog.

The results are very promising. Very pleased with the presence of the possibility to adjust the weight and morph maps directly in the layout:

A little confused some difference between the configuration on which the tests were conducted:

But I trust Lino :thumbsup:

I think that shows that the new geometry engine is more efficient - same object, less memory.

You know, those buttons are in LW now (and have been for a while) and dont let you do what you think.

Elsewhere... very nice speedups we seem to have there, should prove a great boon... though I already know how its gonna go... some of us are just gonna throw more work at it, having more lovely stuff that'll only bring the speed back down again. c'est la vie (;

Yes, really, just I never used them in the layout and therefore did not notice. ))

Looks great. LW playback and response looks much improved. Hopefully another reason to reconsider animating in Maya.

If they really are running simultaneously, I'd expect the free memory values to be similar. LW2015 avail mem is a LOT lower than LW.Next avail mem in those stats.

Was wondering that, myself. Doesn't make sense. Thought about it for a bit then bailed. :D
