Hi
At present I have Lightwave 11.6 and I am happy with the specification of my computer. If I upgrade to 2019 will I need an upgrade to my computer to run it i.e. is 2019 more power hungry than 11.6 because what I canít afford at present is to purchase the upgrade and then find out I need to upgrade my computer?
Kind regards
Munty

What is your computer spec?
What sort of 3d do you want to do?

You could also download the trial and see how it runs.....:)

Check the system requirements at the bottom of the page here:

Note that the minimum recommended video cards were released over 10 years ago.

The VDB features may tax a weak computer but whatever level of work you were doing in 11.6 should probably not be any different in 2019.

Download and install the LW2019 trial, and see for yourself whether it functions as needed on your hardware.
