    Thanks for the suggestions, folks!

    I'll try the multi-threading fix first, although that seems like a crippling move... If that works, I would still consider that a bug, but at least I would have...

    I agree that under Vizrt, a 2021 seems extremely unlikely, especially given the circumstances of the past month, month and a half. I would definitely throw in with a new owner, initially to show...

    So, last try for now. It's definitely a balancing act with LW VDB as far as clouds go.

    This one took considerably longer to render. About two hours.

    On a side note, none of my other renders had...

    Okay... so, a couple things.

    I tried again with the cloud.

    First, I discovered what was causing the crashing; if I enable indirect sampling or volumetric scattering, Lightwave just crashes...

    Quoted for truth.
