I'd love to see lightwave support extended features for game developers like this:

Discreet Releases Game Export Toolset For max, DirectX 9 Support (http://www1.discreet.com/SITE/PressN.nsf/5245eec90119c9cc852566a6005884a4/9ccb8635b2de330e85256cdf0003a6b6?OpenDocument)

I barely use Lightwave on the Mac, but Direct X isn't for the Mac OS. It would really make the already slighted Mac users feel more so.

BTW, there are tools for Lightwave that aide in the export to X-Box, GameCube and PS2/PS1.

I just want alphas in the viewport w/out buying a damn Quadro videocard.

3DS Max you can change the Viewports to OpenGL or whatever else you want (if you have the plug-in). I think if NewTek were to try this it may help. Or at least convert one viewport to another render mode (DX9?). in 3DS Max, it's all or none.

I would be happy with a build in DX9 exporter, but preview of object and anim would really be cool - how about real time DX9 scene preview? Please say yes!
