Now that Vue 6 is out (and looks pretty promising!), will there be a special upgrade deal for all LW users which got it bundeled when upgrading to release 9?

Looks good doesn't it! :)

I would like to upgrade to Vue 6 Infinite+Xstream, but that doesn't seem to be on offer together :(

I wonder if they have fixed the scaling issues that were a complete PITA to deal with when syncing...?

Have you seen the new V6 demo reel?!? Mind blowing. Absolutely stunning...

Though I wonder how loing it took to model/animate/render?

Yeah, if they were selling demo reels they'd be the most impressive company out there. Vue is basicly a toy, as far as I'm concerned- I dare not use it for any real world work- it's just too flakey. Good for skys and exporting trees though.

Then ILM uses toys, and I make money with toys
Maybe tomorrow I will buy a Barbie or a GI JOE and become a multimillionare :grumpy: :devil:

Sadly most people don't have the resources of ILM to hand. I think the demo reels EON put out look great too- but Vue is simply not practical to use for a single person - I'm talking animations here, not stills- the render times to get decent results are absurd. The Vue synch plugin is crap and the import capabilites are also crap. Apart from that it works really well.

I agree for the most part of it.
Sorry ... I just never miss the oppurtunity to be mean. My stoic english blood preceeds me :)

I wonder if this applies to us bundlers:

If you buy any of the Vue 5 Products now*, you will receive your free upgrade to the corresponding Vue 6 product when it is released (download version, node-locked). Click here for more info on Vue 5 Infinite and Vue 5 xStream Bundle.

* Applicable to all products purchased after July 1, 2006.
Products purchased after June 1, 2006 will receive a "Late Buyer" upgrade fee.

is the vue deal for upgrading to LW9 still valid? i guess not...
what i asked for was if maybe newtek can offer us a special upgrade price to vue 6 like they did for lwcad 2.0.
