    Apparently the new license system was the result of customer requests, though I would have urged caution about mentioning the L word at all, to avoid any possibility of "mission-creep". For example,...

    I can't help being curious too, but when a company drops someone, it can be sad but is not necessarily the same thing as being fired. The gossip-monger in me would like to know the true inside story...

    I'm still digesting the thought of Modeler on Viagra. Let's look forward to that one in LW2020. :D

    So if a user has a LW character animation and did not want to go with Octane, could that be exported to Blender to work with Cycles in any form ?

    The book Essential Lightwave V9, page 340. On Amazon UK used price is less than 5.00. :)

    I'm guessing LWCAD should be considered. There is a Phil Nolan course on Pluralsight, so maybe sign up for a free trial and check it out for some more scope on the problem.
  7. Now that's interesting. Could one of the big...

    Now that's interesting. Could one of the big names actually vanish ? FWIW, I think Modo looks (sadly) a bit vulnerable, though to be fair LW has new owners too so I hope they hold their nerve...

    hrgiger, you raise some salient points, but some of that old software is powerful stuff. In my own case I would prefer to own and try to be a total master of Poser 8 or Lightwave 8, than bungle my...

    I hadn't spotted it as starkly as that. So the plan appears to be to kill off perpetual licensing by seriously hampering any advantages it previously had. It is a mystery why anyone would buy such...

    I suspect a good chunk of 4D loyalists will become ex-loyalists as a result of this. And now we have Maya Indie at $250 a year.
    This is surely Blender 2.8 stoking fear into them. It must be. ...

    Next version of Cinema 4D R21 now seems login only, even for Perpetual version.

    Well, nothing to do with me at all, but the plot thickens all of a sudden:-

    1. Who is JoePoe ?
    2. Indeed, where is JoePoe ?
    3. And this is the really big one - why was JoePoe awesome ?

    This...

    I have that book (somewhere :D), and William Vaughan is a genius for sure. Add to that his Modo topology book with principles quite applicable to Lightwave. Regarding video, William seems to opt...

    I remember there were pre-buyer complaints as the course was delayed for a long time, but it seems reasonably complete now, so at the risk of stating the obvious it somewhat depends on if it is...
  16. Did these Lightwave books ever exist in print ?

    Just curious, did these Lightwave books ever actually exist, or were they terminated before going to print ?

    Does anyone have a link for doing this the "correct way", perhaps a course or a book ? :)

    I do agree, but one reason why we are in this existence is because people from the Middle Ages had the aspirations to get out of the Middle Ages....but this is not necessarily the world they...

    Does anyone know if Renderosity is sticking with the server system which "phones home" every few months or if that is dispensed with ?

    Looks doubtfull at the present time, as I have seen mounting concern about any Renderosity software development credentials. My hunch is not too much was paid, like SM were happy to give away Poser...
