    I think ...or certainly hope that your thoughts are eventually proved as pessimistic. It would be out of keeping for how they do things imho. Some of the best features have come out of the point releases. I don't think this cycle will be any different.. maybe shorter.

    My guess is that with going to the 2015 moniker NT will just give us service packs. i.e. 2015 SP1, 2015 SP2 etc. etc.. No no features just fixes. 2016, 2017 etc. etc. would have new features.

    I agree with this for the most part. I do think that they will have a few small surprises during the year, but I do exect a yearly release now AND it will be a paid release every year. No facts, just speculation.

    LightWave 2015 is so called because they knew LightWave 13 was coming up and wanted to avoid it as everyone would be too scared to buy it.

    [ok, edit]

    In my experience some features need a lot of preparations/development and some features are almost for free if the designer can make a connection between the modules that are available at that moment.

    That second type of feature is glamorous but the foundation for the first type of feature is the hard work.
    Results are never born in a linear fashion.

    My reasons to upgrade to LW2015 is not only driven by results per euro but by confidence too.

    I don't quite understand your point. I agree with everything you've said.

    I still remember the versions of Windows 96, 97 and 99... They sucked.

    I wouldn't ever send mail with more than 2 MB of attachment if I could help it. Send a link to a URL instead, where you've put the file.

    Some people have mentioned improvements to fbx export.
    What are these? (other than 2015 format support)

    Doesn't say much on the official page other than bumping the version.
    Which was on http://www.vfxplatform.com/ for 2014 btw

    All I can say now, considering how LightWave2015 has been welcomed by the users in general (thank you, thank you, thank you!), is that the future never looked brighter.

    You're giving us a lot of strength, and be sure we'll be using it to take LightWave to the edge every year!

    I think that answers that question.

    Look forward to downloading the demo and having a play. Got to finish building a "real world" stage set first though.
