    Yep, same here! Exactly my thoughts. I can live with the 295 (+ tax) to have the latest LW but with the thin update like 2020 it is already overpriced and really can't get any more expensive.

    Thanks Mike

    As I wrote you via PM, I figured it out. Somehow the qckPck 2019 plugin was still loaded as Master Plugin and therefore wasn't removed with the Clear option in the Plugins dialog.

    Thanks! Using latest Win 10 (Enterprise). Otherwise nothing special, click on the qckPck button or the assigned Q key and it crashes Layout. I was able to load the license before that.

    Yes that's also what I found. A good render but not photo-realistic. Adding bumps or roughness maps might help. But maybe that's what is intended, to show a model how it could look like.
