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

    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,...

    Confirmed, appears 100% reliable, and consistent in cause/location. Reloading saved FFX config (using Edit->Load in FFX panel) leads to reliable segfault. Appears to be an NPE/AV from...

    Did you upgrade to LW2015? Or skip any updates since LW2015?

    I ask because you mentioned "Charter Pricing" (the lowest of which was $395), but if you upgraded to LW2015 and "stayed current", your...

    If Newtek/VizRT have no intentions of supporting AMD hardware for LW, they shouldn't explicitly state that LW supports it.
