It was mentioned that there were some features in 3D Arsenal that were not in Lightwave (not just the content).

What are those features? Is it possible to add them to Lightwave? Do we need to?

AFAIK 3D Arsenal is a set of plugins for LW that makes it easy to create logo animations for the video people or newbies.

seems to me that some or all of those plugins should find their way into LW9 :)

I know some of that text manipulation stuff looked really convenient.

Are they plugins? arent they just scenes that are already setup so one can insert/place video on them?

There are scenes, but there is plugins exclusive to 3D aresonal. The text stuff for example. They wont be included in LW9, thats why Lightwave users can get 3D aresonal cheaper because we don't need Lightwave, just the plugins, and scenes.
