It seems MIRAI is no more available, but it's winged edge technology is really amazing!

WINGS 3D itself also still have better edge tools than lightwave 9.6.

I wonder if we could do this with lightwave core.

just look!

What's so amazing? It's just a clever data structure which to my knowledge disallows the creation of open and non-manifold meshes. It is optimized towards box-modeling and prohibits the use of other techniques.

What is cool is how highly optimized the modeling toolsets are within these apps ( Mirai, Nendo, Wings3d) and Bay and Martins skills using them. But did you see any modeling function that you haven't seen in any other software? I didn't. The winged edge data structure is not a necessity for any of them, although it might make implementing them easier. To the user there is no difference what data structure is used (except maybe performance-wise).

But agree that NT should observe the ease by which Bay and Martin are able to switch from one task to another.

Btw, you posted in the wrong section. (should have gone in feature request section)

Is there anything that DOESN'T have better edge tools than Modeler?

Not that *I* can think of. :p

There are still a lot of great features in Wings3D that I love - like the advanced menu functions, being able to hit a key and type in a quick and accurate entry for a transform, being able to create a virtual mirror off any poly, just to name a few.

I started my subd work in W3D and I'm still waiting for a current app to have all of the features of this free app that is years old now.

This may sound silly as something inside me says "NO" as an answer to this question but...

With Core coming, what happens to our long term ongoing projects ?
If I switch to core, will Core reckognise my old LW scenes and models and continue on flawlessly ?
Or is it gonna be like switching from LW to maya or something ?
Anyone have an answer to this please ?

it's not only the user hability.

There's a lot of skilled artists working on lightwave.

If you think lightwave can do the same, just do it and record a vídeo to show us :).

Wings, Mirai and others have better optimized tools.
