    You got that right. Even the 3D jobs are low to no paying. 3D jobs require doctorate degrees and then only pay 40-45k. :) Anybody spending money on a four year degree for animation, multimedia or...

    I do. I think LW could make a comeback with the right fortitude of an owner and become a much better app in the process. An new owner could breath new life into the classic. If it updated its...

    Congratulations! This is really nice that you humbled yourself and showed your earlier work. I don't have the guts! :) You've also shown what every artist should accomplish over a period of time -...
  4. Poll: That's kind of my point - either way,...

    That's kind of my point - either way, subscription or perpetual, LW was destined to die. Just not enough potential users to go around. The best business to be in is the toilet paper business -...

    Probably due to the LWO upgrade?



    32bit - so yesterday. :)




    Yeah I can see that.
  6. Poll: Oh my! I can't even go back to 2015 anymore it...

    Oh my! I can't even go back to 2015 anymore it feels so dated. :) You should definitely upgrade, even if 2020 is the last of LW. Modeling in the Layout view is worth the upgrade alone and the camera...

    Well the jump from LW11 to 2020 would have been a very nice upgrade for you.

    TV Paint has always been TV Paint which has always been developed by TVPaint Developpement (yes, proper spelling :)). And was first released on the Amiga back in 1991. Aura was a version of TV Paint...

    I think the NURBS is very useful for many things mechanical and with the improvements to the Round tool, I think they will make a powerful duo. I can see myself drawing many pulls, handles and other...

    Yeah a lot has changed since 2004. The biggest thing for LW was its dark period. Had it kept going it would probably still be relevant. I mean, what was it, 2011 or so when it first had native...

    Modo was LW. It only became Modo after the disagreement between the developers and NT. Had they not had a “divorce” the Lightwave badge would be at the top of the modo interface and what we now know...

    Modo is the successor to LW. Does anyone remember the "Two Mommies" statement from Brad Peebler. So it was in the cards to update LW to a more modern architecture. Too bad NT didn't want to play...

    Certainly not the reason. No way would Autodesk ever open source a product that would compete against their paid applications. I'm sure they, more than anyone, would love to see Blender fade into...

    If it comes out under the banner of a different owner, absolutely yes! To show support. I know it won't come out under the NT/Vizrt banner, so this is a stupid pole. :)

    I couldn't agree more! I got to think a sell-off will be the end result. Which could be the best thing that ever happened to LW.

    Best bet would be a buyout from an interested party. What do you suppose the IP is worth on the open market?
    Or the former devs form a "rock group" and start over with WaveLight.

    It does if you don't break the "rules". But again I rarely use Standard (it still is the best way to get great cloth material) and 2018 was a fantastic learning experience for me on the use of nodes....

    The big difference there is that Autodesk would never consider letting the IP go for fear of it competing with their other DCC's. At least LW has an outside chance of moving to another home because...

    That's not so. Just select "Standard" and click the "T" button and do your thing like you did in 2015 and before. (Okay, so you have to select "Standard" first - one extra click. :))

    Yeah it's a joy to use. Even with people complaining about incompatibility with earlier versions, they did a nice job of making earlier surfaces still work. And for those that hate nodes they could...
