I heard about it when PS CS3 Extended was released and again when I signed up to be a beta tester, but that was a lifetime ago.

Um. Like you can buy it?

Is it actually available to buy? All they have on that page is "sign up for beta!"

I haven't heard a thing about it since it was announced, and that page is extremely sparse!

Frankly, I think CS4 will be out before Rendition. Let's hope NT don't have to start from scratch .. ?

Please make it available, NT. I would most likely buy it (ok my boss would ;)).

This is really disappointing. What a great thing to have and so close! Oh, well. I hate to chalk it up with all the other things NT needs to throw resources at (hair, fluid, fire, etc.), but who do I have to ****** for professional quality tools and plugs? *sigh*

They came out some time ago and 'showed' how fast and well it 'worked'.

I would suspect there is a big fat bug, or they got the heads up from adobe about a CS4, and are already working on that. I hope.

I think the plugin is dead, it's been over a year and I haven't seen anything.

That is indeed an old reply.

..that is, unless they rewrote it, and mean it this time..

Go to Newtek.com. Click on Products. Rendition is one of the 6 products you'll find offered ..

Since when is an unreleased beta a product?

Maybe they finished, but just forgot to release it?

I think over a year is just an exaggeration. CS3 came out at the end of march 2007, and that was the first version to support 3d stuff. Pretty sure Rendition was announced quite a few months after that. Probably been around 6-8months, which still isn't good enough. Why announce anything if it's not brought to fruition in the near future?

My personal opinion is that it may come out the same time as the next LW Open Beta, maybe due to a massive overhaul of code in Lightwave (just a guess) it may only work with 9.x .

yeah I probably exaggerated, I guess it just seems that long to me.
I wish the beta would hurry up and be released, thats all. come on Newtek,
get 'er done.

Based on the name, spooks probably acquired it to help with their 'war on terror'. The product name just brings to mind waterboarding, and that Casino Royale scene with Bond being intimately introduced to a rope.

Must be coming out very soon, i've just found this on their ftp server! :)

ftp://ftp.newtek.com/products/RenditionPS/

Have a read on some of the tutorials... interesting stuff in there! Examples aren't amazing, but it shows what it can do better than anything newtek have given out so far!

Yeah, but now if you go to your registration page, clcik to download anything from the beta, then take the ftp link complete with the whole string of letter etc and random stuff, and remove the bit about whatever you clicked on, it'll take you to a special place on their FTP server where there is all the demo scenes for rendition! Good to see that too!

Oh no, only works if you find the ftp path from the 9.3.1 betas actually!

Sounds like NT is cleaning up their servers and moving this along ... at a snail's pace. Still, progress is progress.
