    Spherize still works in 2019 at least, but you have to unzip it from the legacy plugin folder, put a copy in the appropriate plugin folder, and add it in via the edit plug ins menu. Have you done...

    This is really good. You nailed the feeling. The only thing I don't like it the 480P quality. Is there a high res version?

    That would be awesome, but it seems as though they have been scattered across several companies including other parts of Vizrt. There would need to be a leadership with backing to pull that...

    This is a good point. LW has not been run like a software business, where the business is development of the software on a continual basis, to remain in step with an ever changing industry. It has...

    ...So they spend money on their tools, to keep them up to date, and that results in them making money. This, while blender is free. Hmmmmmmm... What would it have been like if Newtek had taken...

    What a work to accomplish alone! I enjoyed the film. If I ever get to one day visit that place, it will feel as if I have already been there. Hopefully on a sunny day, when I can enjoy the shade...

    Newtek and now Vizrt refused to invest in Lightwave. 2020 is more of a bug fix than a full version, and it introduced bugs they haven't yet fixed before letting all the developers go.

    To make...

    Cool. My first thought is, if there was a way to add random fine detail like antennas, and pipes to the top of the buildings, it would take on another level of realism. I'm talking about the really...

    Best would be if they sold it to someone who was dedicated to keeping it a perpetual license, as a marketing point, and noble principle. Do they exist?

    Sounds like they should take whatever OTOY will offer for it. I would hate to see LW go subscription, but at least it would still be developed for those people who don't mind. I would have to move...

    That is pretty close to what I was thinking, without actually trying it. It could work, depending on the nature of the clip maps. Then you could thicken it, and carry on with as much or little...

    One thing you could try, is making a highly subdivided plane, and then use a version of your clip map as a height map / weight map, and deform the geo based on it. For instance if the clip map was a...

    That is beyond a longshot, because if a company were doing that, they would announce something to that effect, as to get the user base excited, rather than bleed the users off.

    I don't disagree. I was just pointing out this is one of dozens of plans that an owner of an IP like LW might look into. The exact implementation of price and features could vary.

    I think Cageman's point was that they could have competed in that space on price, and unlimited render nodes. So if they could have broken off the render engine as a stand alone, they might have...

    That is interesting. When you consider they just spent the better part of five years making a new render engine. All just to release the staff who made the render engine and mothball it. They...

    The code is still of value. Time does decrease the value though. You wouldn't start from scratch. There are a few other options.

    I think the issue was that they didn't have enough developers for the last decade or so. So, it would take calling them back and building a larger team. A larger pipeline doesn't guarantee more...
