Didnt end up going Rik. Didnt get the time.

Im hanging for this new update as i need all the speed I can get as i have to create 4 renders for 2 bars we are designing.

Why not just get yourself FPrime. It give you antialiasing without going tru those passes and you can crank up the Gi to 6 bounce and more without turning into a skeleton first.....But seriously. Newtek should just add FPrime into lightwave 8.2 and call it a cristmas present..... coz we love and adore Newtek so much :)

I have Fprime, its not that grat for Archi work as its radiosity is very immature.

That is a strange comment. What do you mean by not very mature? Are you seeing color banding or some kind of artifact that you don't like? Not looking to start a fight or anything, but curious why you can't use Fprime, and your post didn't really hint at why.

Lets not stray off the topic please...
NT any new offerings?

Oh sorry for asking a civilized question...
I won't make that mistake again.

As to the release date. Didn't you see it on the main page when you logged in?
No, maybe you should ask on the forum. I'm sure they know the exact release date and are waiting for someone clever to ask on the forum before they release the information.

P.S. have a nice day :O)
