    If I remember correctly I think they got rid of their Lightwave Mac developer as well. The funny thing is EIAS3D is still in active development and as far as we know Lightwave is not.

    Yes, you don't need an internet connection at all to run it or use it. It doesn't phone home to register or anything like that. You just need to place your license file in the correct directory and...

    Like you say maybe it is the fault of Newtek/VizRT rather than the beta testers but serious bugs especially those that can be easily found should be fixed prior to a major release. The initial...

    With things looking dead on the Newtek/VizRT side of things regarding Lightwave I can see Liberty3d being even more important to Lightwave users going forward.

    I would have to say that there were definitely some rendering bugs that should not have made it past beta testers but somehow did. This leads me to believe they either didn't test the changes to the...

    I kinda thought if they had room for Antti he would end up there as well. A nice little group of former Lightwave devs there now I guess.

    I definitely agree. There is something that isn't correct about rendering translucency with the BSDF material. This is why I still use the standard material for this which allows you to crank it up...
