    I use it mostly for converting Collada files to LWO myself. I also use it for scaling files more accurately then Lightwave is able to do natively.

    Sometimes what I do is have 2 portal lights in the window one set to affect specular and the other to affect diffuse so specular can be dialed down without turning diffuse down. Diffuse can then even...

    That's a HUGE list of fixes! Now let's hope that those fixes didn't cause to many new bugs. If testing goes well with this version I might start using 2020 in production soon.

    This is a great piece of software especially when dealing with various file formats. There are many useful features even beyond converting file formats. I've used it for years and highly recommend it!

    They should have included all the previous content or at least most of the content that was shipped with 2018 & 2019. My guess is the reason they didn't is because someone would have to go through...

    I'm running the 2990WX but LW 2015 seems to be very unstable when running all 32 cores so to use 2015 I have to reboot with 16 cores active and it runs fine. LW 2018, 2019 & 2020 all seem to run...

    The first issue you speak of with the 1% difference has been in Lightwave for many years from what I recall. Other than being a bit annoying I never thought it was a big enough issue to type up a bug...

    Yes there is a patch release for 2020 being worked on and tested right now. I saw it being used by beta testers at the Lightwave round table online. I'm not sure when it will be released though.

    I just don't think they have the man power for that kind of thing now. It takes lots of time and effort to put those together. They were very nice though.

    I always enjoy hearing how others are using Lightwave and how they use it in their process. Has Newtek ever done a Lightwave press/news article on how you use Lightwave for furniture design? It would...

    If you do mostly organic modeling then you will likely find little or no use for LWCAD. If you do more technical or architectural modeling then it provides things that native Lightwave just can't do....

    A few may but some of those are bound to come back because no software is perfect and they are seem to have their weaknesses. As I learned the grass is not always greener on the other side.

    Since there is no "sample backdrop" in LW2020 you are now required to use an environment light in place of that to get the same or similar result as using "sample backdrop" in previous versions.
