love rumors ?

There are two rumors that I picked up.
Can anybody validate these ?

Apple bought Lightwave,
keeping it a secret until siggraph.
The next Version will be Mac only,
and it will be the first application to support new enhancements in 64-bit soft- and hardware developement.
New 64-bit workstations will be introduced by apple at the same time.
Lightwave will then also
build a link between the applications Shake and Logic.
The version jump will be to 10 instead of 8.

2. Luxiah / Messology:
Luxologie joint forces with project messiah, they are building a full new 3D application around the basis of messiah.

According to my informations, both rumors are NOT correct.
Cant give you more detail unfortunately...

Neither of those even sound plausible. I don't think they even qualify for rumor status.

I thought Apple was going to buy MAYA?
Now it's lightwave.

Maybe Apple will buy Luxology?

Love rumors... that's very funny. I like that one.

Lightwave + Apple / Luxology + Messiah

Hey, that's a double date!

They'd be stupid to put out a Mac only version. They'd lost most of the current Lightwave owners.

Sounds pretty ridiculous to me.

The Apple one is far out there, but I think it would be sweet if it did happen. That said, if Apple buys any 3D app, I'd be very tempted by it.

I know for sure Jobs will release 7.5B at Siggraph......:D :D :D

Yo guys...be careful not to jump to a conclusion too soon. I heard those rumors too and they sure seem plausible to me. I also heard that Apple bought Microsoft and the next version of Windows will be Mac only. Mark my words. ;) :p

Well, I heard that Microsoft actually bought apple and it looks like they're finally going to get a second mouse button. You also won't have to wait 6 months or more for the software that's been on windows the whole time.

William Windows founded Macrohard, and releases it`s OS called Gates. Alas there are too many backdoors in the OS, so the first SP and the SP of the SP is released as well...

Ok, I'm gonna start another rumour-

Talking about Luxology too much will make you impotent.

Damn, Chuck started a new Rumor.....


modeler-layout-aura-maya integration...MAC-only

:D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D :D

I thought NEWTEK bought MAYA as a freebie animation plugin for Lightwave users?
