Is it me or is there very little discussion on the 'soon-to-be-released' Lightwave 9.0? Usually there is much fevered talk about when and where the upgrade is. Is it that the 8.5 release stiffled the normal pre-release chatter? Is LW 9.0 still on target for 4Q 2005? Have I missed something?

thx

Probably due to the fact that we dont' know if it's actully soon to be released or not. There has been no indication from Newtek that Lightwave will be delayed beyond 4th quarter but we also have no assurances that it won't be. I personally am trying not to get my hopes up too much on a December release. Me and disappointment aren't exactly drinking buddies.

the lack of videos and stuff demoing new features makes me think its gonna be delayed =/ hope i'm proved wrong

I just received a "special message from Jay Roth" mailing (snail mail) from Newtek. It is very similar to the message posted on the NT discussion forum found here: http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?t=41153 except that it says "The beta cycle on LightWave v9 has begun in earnest.", instead of this "Very soon, we will begin the beta cycle on LightWave 9.0 in earnest."

So, it's getting closer.

Aye,
It will be done when it's done as we know. Just of course, we all need new toys to play with over the holidays, why should the kids have all the fun? :p

I could be wrong but this may be a good sign that Newtek has learned a valuable lesson from the last major release and is quietly going about their business to get this puppy ready without igniting the masses with spring-loaded release dates.

After all- quiet forums are preferrable to noisy angry foums.

It's all good man.

Well, I'm ready for some videos (hint hint Proton).

I want to see the edge weighting and/or ngons in action. That or a side by side comparison of Layout performance of 8.5 and 9.

I can now registger the "this" but I thought originally that LW9 would be demonstrated on Jan 12. :(

So I am very happy that it is December 12 :)

We need a smiley with a MUCH bigger grin!! :D :D :D :D :) :) :) The vids may very well force me into making the upgrade purchase!

Cheers Proton, you're a star

Oh now you've done it. What was once a spark of pre-release forum activity will be a blazing inferno of demands, speculations, and "I want I want I want I wants!"

I can just see people demanding to know where the videos are at 10:00am Monday morning. "But he said this week, we want an update on his estimate!!!" :goodluck:

Hmmm, well i call getting Vue infinite for free until the 31st of december an xmas deal!?!

It may be delayed a bit but it won't be more than a month or two, easily worth the wait.

Its almost 10:00 and I am waiting calmly!

You americans are lucky... when Proton announces stuff, you'll usually get it in the morning... but here in the UK it usually pops up around 5'o clock in the evening. If i wasn't working i'd switch my body clock to Yank time :D , wake at around 5pm (UK time) and then go to bed at 8am (UK time). Although it may be slightly extreme.

I hope they improved the SDK. so that itīs more open for plugin devs than it was before. I couldnīt read anything about SDK changes in the previews but I hope...hope...hope. :)

Hmmm, it's just a tease!

He said "look for them." Didn't say anything about "finding them" or "watching them."!!!!

*hehe*

Seriously, if Proton's working on something, I'm sure it's going to blow us away!

Can't wait!

Perhaps Proton is silent because we have angered him in some way. We should saccrifice a lamb to the Proton to gain his favor!

No no no....sacrifice is an ancient Mayan practice (it was the only way you could afford the software back in the day). Newtek is nothing like that. Here is the how to guide on 3D app companies.

Sacrifice = Maya
Blackmail = Max
Bribery = Cinema4D
Flattery = Newtek
(for all others, I simply do not know)

So, your the best proton, now where are those Vids because only you can bring them to us.....

What are we doing that could possibly be construed as patient? Let us know so we can stop whatever it is.

This forum just makes my day...After a stressing day at work, a quick look here and things just starts to lighten up. i wonder if it feels like this conversing with real people outside... :D

And yeah, they should take their time with LW9 but hurry it up ok! coz Patience is a virtue ... that we don't have.

Outside ? ...You mean there really is an outside ? Are you sure you haven't just had one too many cups of coffee or an extra box of Krispy Kremes ? Now as for the suggestion that there might actually be 'real people' somewhere ........ :lol:

you're the first UK resident i've met that is aware of Krispy Kreme! I tried to spread the love while i was there, but to no avail.

so, hmm. halfway through the week...still excited...

As far as I can remember, there is an outside world. The reason as to probably why I chose to forget about and avoid the outside world is, the only time I went outside out of curiousity, I came back with a wife, a baby and no money.

Ah yes...
although "Patience is a virtue"...
Sainthood is not our goal. :devil:

I don't care how long Newtek takes, just so long as it's good when it gets here.

I've managed to make a fair enough living using every version since 5 was released...so...just do whatcha do Newtek.
