    @KAT Yeah, I think if anyone is motivated and qualified to take on that job, you would be able to be that person. But will you be able to convince Vizrt management and Newtek to sell Lightwave source...

    Newtek attempted that before, of course. It would be a vast undertaking, and a dedicated development team would probably need at least 5 years of development for that to happen. And at that point the...

    Surely you meant hundreds OR thousands of other [indie shops]? I doubt there were hundreds of thousands of Lightwave seats even in its heyday - or even general DCC seats in the world.

    I'd rather think the distinct lack of communication on Newtek's part and the slow development pace and hardly any real progression in terms of real development aside from the new render engine (and...

    A 3080 with 20GB would be a very attractive proposition. There is a price gap between the 3080 and 3090, and I feel a price that falls in the middle of that price range makes sense.

    But I do hope...

    I don't know - a dual Xeon 16/32 threads CPU is still quite fast, I think, and the scene simple. I would have expected faster render times in the older render engine.

    It is a nice result, and it shows off the (still great) quality of the old Lightwave renderer, but those render times are insanely long. Is that because of that compound shader?

    PhotoLine has quite nice PSD import which will keep the text layers as well as keep bitmap versions as a backup, but its PSD export is quite limited.

    In short, it will not export a PSD that...

    Still very much a "work in progress" release.

    Maxon removed ProRender in this release, which they introduced in R19. Only the old legacy renderer is now part of C4D. I suppose they will introduce...

    If how this is coming down is true, NT/VizRT do not deserve your money. I would rather just hack the software.

    But perhaps tomorrow the sun will come out, and all this is just a bad dream.
