Epic Games Acquires Shave and Haircut (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oE8ESNR2KzI)
Does this mean Shave & Haircut will become incorporated into Unreal and thus compatible with LW ?

"Epic Games has acquired Shave and a Haircut, and will make the v9.6 Maya plugin and associated shaders available on GitHub in the coming weeks as both source code and compiled binaries. These will be free for everyone to use under the Unreal Engine 4 EULA."

Actually, people should contact Epic and ask that they also release the older LW plugin source to Github.

Even though it probably won't be as modern/current as the Maya plugin, for a dev, being able to see both the older LW plugin implementation, and the newer Maya plugin implementation, greatly aids/improves their ability to deal with porting issues (for modern S&H to modern LW).

I've still got the original LW dongle... is it backwards compatible? :P
Interesting news though

Does anyone understand what the UE4 EULA actually means? OK to render in LW (and other 3D apps) but NOK to render in Unity, CryEngine and other game engines?

Here is the start page which is supposed to be updated with free downloads when available. Also a support email for existing customers, if you want to send a question about the LW plugin: https://www.unrealengine.com/en-US/programs/shave-and-a-haircut/shave-and-a-haircut-v9-6-for-maya
