Geometry Instancing really would be important feature for ligthwave. My work in lightwave is limited by the lack of this.

Are there any plans do include instancing in the future?

thanks

Have you tried HDInstance from www.happy-digital.com?

I think it's amazing.

It is, but doesn't solve the problem of e.g. technical modelers needing real geometry based instancing for interactive feedback. Simply placing points and then letting HD Instance do the rest often doesn't cut it. I'm not saying it's essential (I don't have a problem with heavy meshes containg every tiny screw and nut as real geometry) but it surely wouzld make things easier sometimes.
