    Ya I built my own 2990WX machine last year and it was about 1/3rd cheaper than ordering a prebuilt machine and mine has better quality parts that a prebuilt as well.

    For me the only reason I use the Lightwave render engine is because I can still get good results out of it and I use LWCAD for modeling so it is the most practical and easiest route for me to render...

    Nice! I suspect that if your rendering with 80 threads then there likely isn't a limit like you say. I guess we will probably have that verified sometime next year with the 128 Threadripper get's...

    Thanks Lewis, it's good to know that Lightwave 2018 and up is future proof for multiple threads on CPUs.

    That's pretty fast! I think the 3950X is a nice sweet spot at the moment for speed and value. My 2990WX did 77 sec with no OC so that 103 sec isn't far off.

    Even if I find assets in .lwo format they are never surfaced properly or the way I want them surfaced. As long as I'm able to import them into Lightwave and scale, texture and surface them that's all...

    I'm sure you will be able to do that but doing that would defeat the purpose of it's design. You might as well pay less and get a 3970X then.
  8. Will Lightwave Render Engine use 128 Threads?

    With AMDs confirmation and teaser of the 3990X 64 core 128 thread Threadripper coming next year I was wonder if the current Lightwave render engine will detect over 64 threads? I know that Blender...

    They were likely trying to reduce the size of the dev team for whatever reason. Yes getting rid of the render engine programmer especially shortly after a major release was a bit surprising to me as...

    Most recently I have been using 3Dsky for many of my assets. The assets have to be loaded in with fbx usually and then manually converted so they look good.
  11. The new render engine even though a bit on the...

    The new render engine even though a bit on the slower side is overall capable of much more than the old render engine. I got a Threadripper to solve the slow problem and with that it works great the...

    Yes it's possible it might load into another program like Accutrans. I would agree this might be worth a shot.

    I would guess that Lightwave remains a fairly popular tool with freelancers and small studios.

    There was a bug back in 2018 that I submitted that caused crashes during rendering with GI. It happened when certain kinds of nodes like bump maps were fed through a nodal network a specific way. It...

    I use the ASUS PB277Q 27" WQHD 2560x1440. I have had it for about 5 years now and it works great for what I need.

    I guess I should have been more clear on what I meant. I find the newer "smart selection" way seen here https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=247&v=HZBinS5QLaE using ctrl & shift a bit hard to...

    I have never got used to the new selection mode in LWCAD 5.x and 2018.x releases so I still use LWCAD 4.51 for most of my work since it's selection is much more like Lightwave native. I have both...

    1m 17s with LW 2019.1.3 on a AMD 2990WX

    My system specs are in my signature. I currently have my 2990WX set to the default autoboost setting and have air cooling with dual Noctua fans.

    I did some simple tests and the issue with the Hub seems to be fixed now! I will begin using this build in production with heavier scenes to see if it remains rock solid.

    Once I get this update installed I will test the Hub on my system.

    That is exactly one of the several issues I have been experiencing after the Win 10 1903 update. I would say it's definitely a Hub issue because as far as I know it's the Hub that supplies the list...

    Thanks for letting me know that. I'm going to see how the standard workflow goes and if I think it's lacking then I will upgrade to ODTools 2019.

    That sounds like a good idea. I will probably set up a mouse pop up with those commands as well.

    I started using Lightwave at version 6.0 so I have never used a version of Lightwave without the...
  25. Workflow without the Hub advice & tips

    It looks like Windows is going to push the 1903 update on me again after I had reversed back to 1807 from 1903 earlier this year. So if I can't get the Hub running properly I will likely just use...
