    Aside from it crashing LW2020 & LW2020.0.1?

    Suuuuuuuuure, everything's fine, nothing to see here. :rolleyes:

    So, some progress (of sorts):

    1. LW2019.1.5 (UB64, 10.13.6) is actually capable of converting the content into a "modern" LW content set. It even loads it fine after (haven't checked settings)....

    Not really, not without open-sourcing LW itself.

    Lscript bindings into LW's feature systems are the critical lscript code that requires so much maintenance (and will break with changes over...

    See OP's post. If aspects are already broken, it's already losing value quickly.

    I tried to download the original scene, but couldn't find the link, does anyone have a working link for it?

    I suspect if you load the scene in LW2015, then "package scene" it out again, that'll...

    It is in any of the "Reference" sections for Animation as well? If not, it also probably should be in the same section there as where Parenting is discussed.

    That said, from a UI/UX perspective,...

    Hmm...what happens if you load the rendered normal image file back in as an image buffer and feed that as normal buffer input?

    @Denis (as he'll likely read this thread), something's also up with...

    Adobe can say whatever they want, doesn't mean it'll hold up in court (and for something like that, a class action is probably inevitable). Wait and see how it plays out.

    No, there's no available lscript->binary-plugin "lscript true compiler" (btw, .p is just for Windows, .plugin is the extension on Mac). If it were possible somehow, then yes, it could hypothetically...

    If they're no longer updating it or fixing bugs, it'll quickly start breaking (due to how it's wired into everything), well before it gets removed.

    I really get the sense they barely even...

    If it were ever going to be fixed, it would have been fixed long, long ago.

    The last LW customer's final post will occur at quarter-to-the-hour and wind up as a double-post -- likely Prometheus,...

    LWG's been missing boats for a LONG time now, expecting a different outcome here isn't likely rational.

    2015.3 with GI importance sampling off behaves similarly to 11.6.3 (you're using 11.6.3, not actually 11.5, right?!), producing noisier results in around the same time. With GI importance sampling...

    A bit of a long-shot, admittedly, but one possibility is that a file wound up in the autoscan plugin directory that was causing a crash when LW attempted to scan & load it during launch. I've had...

    Fair question.

    That said, there are plenty of legit LW licensees who aren't in the "new registration system" because they never upgraded past 9.x. Quite a few LW customers "stopped" at 9.x,...
