Wondering what do you think about Procedural Modelling capabilities in LW NEXT?

Zero.
Even without any blog updates I'm not expecting procedural modelling in lightwave for the next 3 versions.

I thought we're getting some procedural operators / stack??

Houdini aside, which software for procedural modelling might be the one to emulate ?

Houdini aside, which software for procedural modelling would be the one to copy, cough, I mean innovate.

3Dsmax has few cool features about it's modifier stack that would be good to have, apart from that Modo has it's tools now as procedural operators and it's pretty useful sometimes.

Its pretty vague what they showed.
They didn't look like modelling operators like in modo, max, blender.

But we did get a promise of something amazing that will give LW user an edge in the market, so who knows.

Not expecting anything in this next version but can't see how it can survive in the future without it, certainly won't attract new users. Still feeling optimistic, though.

we're getting a deformer stack, not a modeling one.

Im expecting between 0 and none on procedural modeling tools for LW vnext.

This is all we've been told regarding Modeler: https://blog.lightwave3d.com/2015/11/iterative-design-and-modeling-workflow-improvements/
This is just a way to see your modeling adjustments in "real-time."
