So does this mean still no 64bit LW for the Mac?


From Chuck, a while back...

My guess is that there's no need to worry. The article you linked to was referring to Carbon's 64bit capabilities and here it says: (http://www.newtek.com/news/releases/01-06-04b.html) "The roadmap will migrate LightWave 3D to Apple's Xcode development environment and transition the application from Carbon to OS X native." That was in 2004 so if I understood correctly, LightWave does not depend on Carbon nowadays.

From my communication with Newtek, I am under the impression that 64bit Mac LW development is largely incumbent on Leopard, but is continueing as much as possible in the meantime.

As I am not an employee or spokesman for Newtek, there's always the possibility that I am in error. But I'm personally not worried.
