    am I deaming?

    Could take a little while: "The V-Ray Application SDK is expected to be available in Q3 2012."

    Great News, I guess it's safe to say that ChaosGroup won't make a VRay for LW anytime soon.

    yeah! They will not do a LW plugin, but who will do will sell several licences!

    I want the LW to Vray exporter!

    Hey, this could be good news...or maybe Newtek will appear magically with the unknown something or other, popping wonderfully out of the magic top hat as the brilliant rabbit of a great render Lightwave beauty saying, "Ahhhh, what's up doc?"

    I hope you got it, Newtek!

    And I'm looking at this anyway, either way.

    Do you want an exporter or VRay integrated into LW?

    Cheers,

    Integraded is better, but an exporter is also usefull.

    any chance to have exr trader working on Vray? once it will be integrated

    Seriously. I've been learning Vray inside of Maya and it's...impressive. Yes, if someone makes a LW integrated plugin, it's on my shopping list. How cool would Lightwave be with Kray and Vray hanging off it, I'd imagine very cool.

    that's a pretty big development job...support for vray camera's, lights and materials as well as "the renderer" if it's inside of lightwave.

    i'm sure that would take at least a weekend of coding from mr wolf!

    As mentioned in the other thread... I'd expect it to take roughly a year until a first, solid, release.
    Which would still need to be financed somehow of course.

    So, let's start a crowd funding .
    but one year is too much

    Crowd funding might be a way to go if promoted correctly. If you don't hit your target it shows there's no sizable potential user-base, although I myself would buy it but probably not contribute to crowd funding so I might be wrong on this. It would be worth waiting for, Vray is what production is using now. The life this would pump back into Lightwave would be significant, you'd hope Newtek might see that.

    It's too early anyhow. The SDK hasn't been released yet and even then one would need to discuss the licensing details for VRay binaries that ship to customers.

    Siggraph seems to provide a good opportunity for that.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    It's probably the only viable way to do this outside of NT as an independent third party (as opposed to somebody employed by, say, a studio or so).

    I am glad we are on this

    Personally I am very happy rendering in Vray (and 3D studio), using my models from LW10 ( I wont upgrade, no need for just modeling), and if we could finally render straight (no 3rd party softwares in between) then LW will be a hit.
