    You appear to be reinforcing Erik's point much more than refuting it: LW's native bevel/extrude/shift-type tools lack usability/quality, and obtaining reliable, usable ones costs extra.

    IMO,...

    It might make the "no comment" statement less gloomy, but wouldn't that scenario make the dev exits even more gloomy?

    And, in any case, how would a "more of the same" approach under Newtek help...

    Yeah, I find it extremely telling how few discuss or show VFX-style volumetric lighting tricks (engine flares, weapon flares, weapons discharges, etc.) in LW any longer -- there's a reason for that,...

    There are some "catches" to be aware of using the "split-by-limited-regions" approach: If you're using GI, you need to use the same GI cache for rendering both image sections, or there's likely to...

    Poll: What LW version are you primarily using?

    As so many are talking about using LW now and into the future, it seemed worthwhile to try and gather some info on what versions are primarily being used.

    BTW, the "LW2020 (or later)" answer...

    He (TreyX) is the one who made the claim, so it's his obligation to back it up. I'll respond when/if he provides objective evidence/features.

    ROFL! Spoken like someone who hasn't touched Modo since 601 (or earlier).

    But please, feel free to enumerate all the features and aspects of LW's animation, dynamics, and rendering that Modo...

    Are you using the last revision of LW2018 (2018.0.7)? If not, try with that? Maybe provide the object/scene, or minimal example that causes the same artifact, so we can check geo, etc?

    Agreed! If you're still planning to use LW going forward, you should definitely join DB&W Patreon, it offers excellent value for cost!

    I wish I felt the same way. I'm using LW2015 on High Sierra right now (still works there), but moving to newer macOS means giving up on access to LW2015, which I find very problematic. _Many_...

    Quality's been sketchy at best for the entire LW2018-LW2020 sequence, and its rapid decline was definitely among their more serious issues. LW2019's quality is discernably higher than either LW2018...

    Well, good luck with that. Seems like you're looking back at the 2015-2018 gap with extremely rosy-colored glasses (esp. overlooking customer attrition), but sure, why not.
