    I think their Rendition experience "poisoned the well" for that whole conceptual path with them. And, as you note, success would require plenty of marketing (not just sales ads, but also edu...

    So then does that mean you're producing baked, pre-lit textures/texture-sequences throughout? How are you configuring GI to avoid inter-frame anim flicker? Or just no GI?

    Yeah, I definitely liked those aspects of Fluent most of all, I'll definitely get the Power Trip if I get Fluent. I might just wait till I have a need for those tools specifically, though, as I...

    Yep, understandable. Good time to learn something unrelated. I'm working on rebuilding my "(LatAm) Spanish", real languages are a nice break from computer languages. ;D

    Realistically, I think Jascha's just hitting the practical limits of what the (legacy) volumetrics LWSDK can support. I doubt that can improve unless/until NT/V provide LWSDK support for "new...

    To be clear, that's a (speculative) statement from a customer, not an official statement from NextLimit, but there's no question standalone RF development has slowed.

    Yeah, I'm interested in this as well! The UberCam cameras I care about were supposed to be coming later, but it seems like development has somewhat stalled. Any timeframe for the next batch?

    Bob has died, fallen over, and is being answered while beaten into dust. His retirement status is moot at this point. ;D

    You appear to be reinforcing Erik's point much more than refuting it: LW's native bevel/extrude/shift-type tools lack usability/quality, and obtaining reliable, usable ones costs extra.
