I was wondering if anyone has heard anything about new features or glimpses of new tools at siggraph? Newtek has been fairly quiet lately with Lw and I was curious if anything has been mentioned about some surprises at Siggraph?

I think we would have heard something here if anything was announced, but it would be nice to hear something new.

I hear Silence is Golden sung by the Tremeloes is on auto repeat at Newtek HQ.

Man - must be easy working in Newtek PR.

nothing much only the new rigging tools, new ik, totally intergrated lightwave with modeler now 100% within layout...the new modifier stack to change stuff and animate modeling, complete re-write of the U.I with tear off panes, ies lighting and the sllightly boring introduction of all new bucket renderer.

other than than not one bit of what's coming out....

btw ''they'' really liked your U.I.
of course i changed my colour scheme to be 'cat fur'...much more pleasent on the eyes and the 'purr' plugin is very cool for quadroped rigs....

...Hmmm....seem to have run out of port....off to get another bottle opened and some cheese crackers!

ohh forgot the walk-o-matic procedual biped/quadroped stuff in 9.9 is okay but hardly worth a mention really.

Poor Ivan D.

Simple questions, oftentimes, elicit the madness within, my friend. When knowledge lacks the squeezability of concrete reality the mind tends to engage in languid, flickering dances of mirthful dearth seasoned with muttered propheteerings (yes, I did mean propheteering- this word doesn't exist, but should...well, at least I think it should).

other than than not one bit of what's coming out....There was a little bit about redoing the interface to be more Max like. You know, everything useful being at least two clicks and a drag away from everything else...

would be better than 3 tabs away and buried within a drop down or additional list!

lw's u.i. is messy, lacks organisation.
the tabs as discussed at length on the forums have never been ideal...
thank goodness you can create custom tabs that make sense.

That's true. I'd forgotten how much I'd rearranged my interface.

why do you people torture yourself so? if you are on the open beta, you know EXACTLY what newtek is making. They have no reason to keep any "secrets" and at the pace they are going, expect any new feature promises made during previous siggraph to be delivered for next siggraph. Based on current track record.
