    That’s why I asked Cageman his inputs. My first experiments with Mantra, especially with smokes and fire have been rather positive. So I am eager to have his inputs from a studio POV. I of course...
  2. This interests me. Could you tell me in your...

    This interests me. Could you tell me in your opinion in which domains LW native renderer is better than Mantra ? I have recently started to learn Houdini but don't have used Mantra much, as I am...
  3. Agreed, things have changed, and I would also say...

    Agreed, things have changed, and I would also say have gotten even worse over the last years as, besides the harware part, the OS has become more and more closed, just for forcing you to buy...

    Yet again, my point was not to compare between Mac or Windows, not even to complain about the lack of compatibility, but just to point out that for NT, if they were to go on a CUDA-only GPU route,...
  5. Here we go again, right. It's not about you...

    Here we go again, right.
    It's not about you having a hard time understanding why Mac users exist.
    It is about the fact that they do exist, and that they pay for LW, the same price you do, and thus...
  6. Indeed. But if I can accept that for noise...

    Indeed. But if I can accept that for noise reduction (allthough, yes, it means you pay the same price on Mac for a software that is not on par with Windows version), I wouldn't for GPU rendering. So...
  7. Of course we can blame Apple for this closed...

    Of course we can blame Apple for this closed approach, hence my choice to switch to Linux. But from NT point of view, choosing the CUDA road would mean loose the Mac user base. I don't know which...
  8. Yeah, so that all Mac users are left aside. Well...

    Yeah, so that all Mac users are left aside. Well I suppose NT don't really need Mac users provided the ever growing user base of LW...

    That's precisely what I have done. I am learning it from Apprentice (from which you can export a lot of things, BTW), and I'll go for Indie when I need some more functions (like wartermark free...

    And at the end of the day, if you rent by series of two years (399$ for 2 years), it's cheaper than keeping up to date with Lightwave (IF LW delivers a paid upgrade evry year, ofc).

    OD shelf tools isn't compulsory to export from Houdini to Lightwave, you can do that manually (in sdf VDB or .OBJ sequence, your choice). OD shelf tools simplifies the process, of course.
    You can...

    It should work but not of you just scrub the timeline. There is a *calculate* icon in the particles menu, try to compute from here.

    I posted a Feature Request on this some time ago (LWF-2927), but got the usual "we'll see" answer. As my next 3D rig will be Linux-based, in the meantime, I have started to learn Houdini... (and I...

    OH yes, Linux Mint is really great. Next rig, I get rid of Mac OS for Linux Mint. I also tried Elementary OS : seemingly nicer out of the box, much less flexible in my book.
    Happy to know that TAFA...

    To be fair...
    As I am more and more certain to ditch Mac OS on my next rig for Linux, I have been considering switching from LW to Blender as a general 3D app (along with a bunch of others app I am...

    If you have OD_tools, you can save your settings as presets in the OD_SceneQuickSetup function.

    Moving to AMD for my next rig too, and most certainly quit using Mac OS (even if I would be ready to try the amd-hackintosh route just to see where it gets me). If LW would only work in Linux with...

    I would also welcome a Linux version, if not fully native at least with the winetrick, provided NT would find a fix for the licensing system.
    My next rig will most certainly be AMD & Linux Mint...

    Could this thread be made back on topic ? It is about 3Dslider efforts to bring cycles into LW, nothing else.

    Yep, they still owned me 96 bucks as C3D broker, I hope it will be refunded soon. Vue helped me a lot getting into 3D, I'm sad it has gone this way.

    Oliver Hotz presets system would help a lot for that, as everything is self-contained in the preset.

    Well, since the demo can't export, I tried importing their abc demonstration file, and it failed to import un Unreal - so a no-go for me, currently.

    As for GPUs, I've read somewhere that Apple devs had told that two pie lanes had 8-pins connectors, which basically means that you can put standard GPUs inside the new mac pro without using the new...
