    I've figured it out... user error.

    Because I had to do a manual install, I added all the plugins, but did not install the ones in the 'Legacy' folder.
    It turns out, that's very necessary :)

    I totally agree about the marketing thing... NewTek are renowned for their poor marketing strategies for LW, and 2019 was a little bit better than previous efforts, but again... not good enough....

    Wow... the upgrade felt a little thin? Compared to what? 3ds Max???
    Have you seen the 3ds max update for 2020? It's so thin it hurts.

    - VDB Tools
    - Edge Shader
    - Patina...

    I personally still love using LightWave, it brings me more joy than frustration, and nice to see a positive review. Still think what they achieved with 2019 was...

    Don't think it's video drivers as I've just updated them, but I'm also getting this on my win 10 machine at home.

    This is definitely LWCAD 2018.1?

    Yeah, thanks for going to the effort of screengrabbing.

    I definitely don't get that. I've tried new configs and everything, but not a complete reinstall.

    I'll try that, and see what happens!

    Hmmm, maybe it's a Win 7 only thing. What happens if you use the Distance tool, does it leave a measurement in place after dropping the tool?

    Wow, you're a machine... these are great!

    Makes me want to do more basic tutorials too, based on the stuff I've learnt over the years.

    Keep it up... enjoying them immensely!
  16. LWCAD 2018 in LightWave 2019 - Distance Tool not working correctly?

    Hi there,

    I've posted this on the LWCAD forum, but not had a response as yet. I was wondering if anyone else using LW 2019 has seen the problem using the LWCAD measure tools?
    In LW 2018, they...

    I wondered if draft mode was set in your VPR options... it reduces the ray recursion limits to 2 or something, which is good for speed, but obviously not for this kind of thing.

    Not sure mate... Try it, but FFX is a tricky one as it can get a bit jaggy with lower sampling settings.
    Making it thicker may help the renderer trace the lines though, although not 100% certain

    Usually upping the minimum camera samples help with FiberFX jaggyness, but not sure how high it should be as it depends on your FFX settings too.

    Yeah, this is a biggie.

    As more and more developers are involving their communities, as they rely on them a fair bit... LightWave's development being so distant just alienates users.
