    Not true. There is no optimization for LightWave in the NVidia Studio drivers.

    I don't think there are many LScript commercial plugins, most should be C or Python.

    Yes fully agree. And yes, all other 3D software (some of them way more complex or feature rich) run fine on the same machine. LW 2020 Layout crashes already with two primitive objects (every time...

    Not interested in his products anymore, too buggy / crashy and he doesn't keep them up-to-date for new versions. As far as I know AP works only up to LW 2015. Waste of money for me.

    Yep, same here! Exactly my thoughts. I can live with the 295 (+ tax) to have the latest LW but with the thin update like 2020 it is already overpriced and really can't get any more expensive.

    As I wrote you via PM, I figured it out. Somehow the qckPck 2019 plugin was still loaded as Master Plugin and therefore wasn't removed with the Clear option in the Plugins dialog.

    Thanks! Using latest Win 10 (Enterprise). Otherwise nothing special, click on the qckPck button or the assigned Q key and it crashes Layout. I was able to load the license before that.

    Yes that's also what I found. A good render but not photo-realistic. Adding bumps or roughness maps might help. But maybe that's what is intended, to show a model how it could look like.
