    This is why I drink.

  5. LW2018 and point light lens flares: secret sauce?

    I was using lens flares on point lights in 2015.3, with a rotating star filter for that "photon torpedo" look as the lights danced about. I can't seem to get the flares to appear at all in 2018.0.4....

    Yes. I'm encountering some speed issues, to be sure. To my thinking I'll mitigate those as I evolve into a relationship with the new version. As is, the quality upgrade without needing tweaks from...

  13. LW 2018: first impressions from my personal production pipeline

    Okay, so. I fully understand lots of folks have lots of opinions. That's more than cool, and from where you sit your opinions are always 100% right; that's how opinion works.

    I hear ya. As I see it, nothing is perfect so I'm good with "good enough to get the job done." Right now that's all I need out of TFD, I get some quality time learning more about 2018, and the client...

    Man, I feel ya.

    Last video I just wrapped up, near the end of the run the client notes they'd like to add an object to the main scene. "It's just a quick add, right?"

    Ah! Thanks for that tidbit!

    Started a new gig recently and decided to give 2018 a go since there's some ramping up time built into the mix. They want me to blow up a building as part of the job...
  19. Opening .lwo/.lws files by double-click, not working for me in LW2018

    I'm figuring this is a MacOs/LW2018 specific issue since High Sierra didn't break similar functionality in any of my other apps (that I know of).

    Just wrapped a gig and starting a new one,...
