    For those who doubt the importance and violence of this pandemic, just wait until a member of your family or close friend slowly starts dying in horrible suffering from lungs defiency, then falls...

    You have to select the prcocedural node in the node editor, and then inside this node select IFW2 textures. But as Marander says, you will just have access to former texture IFW2, not nodal functions...

    A 16-years old teen died in France today from COVID-19 and she apparently had no other serious illness. Youngsters are definitely not immune. Less prone to be infected, but that's all.

    Already have phot and publisher. I would gladly buy Designer too, but since I plan to switch to Linux and Affintiy products don’t work with Wine, it may not be the wisest thing to do.

    I’m sending my family in our country house and I’ll stay alone for work, because 4 children in a little town house with schools closed will become hell on earth in three days. :)

    Indeed. The more people request that, the more chances we have they take seriously a look at it. I filed a FR a few months ago, but got nothing apart the usual form answer.

    Yep, this complete blackout has become a total pain. I'm now investigating other options, especially as, switching to Linux on my next rig, LW won't be an option anymore unless NT addresses the...

    Very nice animation, feels very real. My first plastic model was a Drakken, one of the coolest jet designs. I also made a Viggen in the past, but the Grippen was out way after I stopped assembling...

    Nope, for the moment, you're stuck. Maybe someday will NT port AMD pro render on LW, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    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...

    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...

    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,...

    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...
  20. 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...
  21. 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...

    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.
