3D Arsenal 2.0 is a completely new version of 3D Arsenal and is currently in development. It will be based on the new LightWave 3D 9.5 code base but many of the high-end features such as character animation tools and node editors, not used by 3D Arsenal users have been removed. While this is not a full LightWave 3D package as in previous versions, it now boasts a new streamlined, easy to use 3D Arsenal interface and toolset. This will afford some great new benefits, including:

New installer
Better render quality
New base content
New motion blur
A Render Q for render multiple scenes at once
No need to scan plug-ins as they are auto-scanned
No need to load fonts for use in Easy Text as they all show up as the default
Pre and Post behaviors for videos and sequences
All files formats show up in all requesters

NewTek will be offering an attractive upgrade path for all current users to get everyone onto the new platform.

Will it also be available as a set of plugins for 9.5 for people who do want the nodes, character animation and all that?

Yes
There will still be a content only version for LW owners.
As we move forward with this we may require LW9 or above but the Sports ammo pack will be compatible with all current 3DA users 7.5 and higher.
