I know it's too early but I really would like to know:

Is the development team working on a new version of Lightwave for 2019?

I really would like to find on Lightwave the tools we have in all the other softwares, except lightwave.

Wishlist:

MUSCLE and SKIN deformers
Native animation sculpt
Weightmaps paint in layout
Native cage deformer
Animation Layers
Better cloth and soft dynamics ( NVidia/Newton/Physbam/n-cloth level )
Better particle and fluids dynamics
Hard dynamics without pre-break
Scene reference ( scene inside a scene you can isolate and edit)
GPU rendering


This would bring Lightwave back as a character animation software choice again.

A poll was already taken by Newtek on what they should include in a new version, within reason, I would expect they will be following that.

yes they are working hard on a new version, no there is no info available when and what it will be called.

I would like have in LW3d 2019:
- Icons
- David Vrba would redo Napalm (particle system)
- Better snap tools in Layout
- Better "undo - redo"
- Fire and smoke generator (but is not necessary, leave something for third party like JAWSET)

. . . ?? And how do you manage that? I used to have my page set to dark background using an Extension for Chrome, but Chrome 'coughed up' a hairball for "Styles" app that I was using, and now I am stuck with 'way too bright, white,' weird brown, REally?? VBulletin, where are the choices to go 'back to dark?'

I think that means the drop-down selection in the lower left-hand corner of this forum. I like BP-Brown.

. . . . "weird brown, REally?? VBulletin, where are the choices to go 'back to dark?'" . . . . {Quoting my prior post}
I find the BP-Brown dark enough, but I was used to slightly cool dark gray, using the Style Extension. VBulletin should offer that choices, or allow Users to easily to find this choice???

NewTek did a great job on LW2018 though, also check out OD Tools for LW2018.
Modeler needs an update / rewrite, and that might be next.

it seems things are heading in the right direction, we'll see in 2 years or so.

I think development is going to slow to much to see a lightwave 2019. The effort to port all of NewTeks programs to the Iphone and Android is going to take up all their time the next few years....

May be we will see port for the Radeon Pro Render in the next LW version?

You mean you don't want a symbol of a fish with 3 dots above it's head inside a triangle which represents Bandsaw?

I hope to be able to use the new RTX graphic cards with the real time raytracing directly in Lightwave viewports ;)

3rd Powers, Metamorphic, LWCAD - put the baby in my belly. For added modeler heft I would really like to see these alive and active being updated pushed. LWCAD - does do the best job of being alive and active. Here is hopping for signs of life from the others soon.

the best RTX graphic card is impressive,

the Gi animation does flicker though, just like with Octane 4 with Ai Denoising.

impressive, but certainly a bit hyped looking closer.

Eevee code is perhaps even a bit better when it comes to less jitter / flicker.

don't get me wrong, the top model $10.000 RTX is still great, no doubt.

Well i will go for the cheapest GeForce i think ;)

RTX 2070 will start at $499, the RTX 2080 at $699 and the RTX 2080 Ti at $999

I don't use graphics cards at the moment except in TriCaster... :0
