Thread: Lightwave 2015 revealed!

  1. #436
    Thank you Rob and the LW3DG Team for what seems like a nice release!

    Is there any info on exactly how different Genoma 2 is vs the first iteration? Can't find any specifics...

    Genoma 2 is more of a Rigging Development Kit than just a set of pre-made parts to put together. It coexists with Genoma 1 so that users at different levels can use what suits them best, but best if Lino gives you a fuller explanation.

    As well as the upcoming revamped modeler (as hinted by Rob), can we expect a future release of Lightwave to have a more streamlined interface? All the windows and dialogue boxes I have to go through drives me nuts. Dual monitor does help with scene editor and graph editor somewhat, but a serious modernisation of the UI is needed. It's all looking positive so far for Lightwave.

    We can only guess because LWG are not being open about this 2015 thing. We know there was a 11.7. Now a 2015 comes out, but they aren't saying there will be a 2016... So all we can do is speculate...

    Well I welcome the new release and well done LW3DG.

    But like a few people on here I am disappointed that nothing of any real significance has been done with modeller

    There may well be important "under the hood changes", but without seeing this in real world tools it seems a disappointment.

    It might also be worth noting that I loaded a LW11.6.2 scene file into LW2015 and re-saved it, loaded it back into LW11 and the instances had changed position.

    Now I realise this is asking for trouble, but I thought it was worth a warning while people are playing with the demo version, not to save anything out of LW2015
    that they are likely to need to use in LW11.

    Lets keep hoping for some modeller love very soon

    There are a lot of software out there that have the year naming convention that don't put out an upgrade every year simply because it is almost impossible to put out a worthwhile upgrade every year. Only companies that are out for a money grab and don't care about the quality of the upgrade put out an upgrade every year regardless of whether there are reasonable improvements and bug kills to the software or not. I personally don't care about the naming convention and I wouldn't put too much thought into whats behind it. In a way it would have been nice to have started out with that naming convention from the beginning. I started using lightwave in 1994 and right know if someone told me that they were going to give me a million dollar to tell them what version of lightwave i first used, i would not be able to tell them. With this naming convention it would be simple, "Lightwave 1994".

    2015 haven't even begun yet, and we have NO idea what's coming the next 13 months. For all we know, the release of LW3D 2015 was done now to make it clear that they ARE working on something, so the crowd that's been shouting, kicking and screaming and begging for information from the silent crowd at LW3DG would calm down and enjoy the ride.

    The fact is that it's been released. Whether you like the tools and updates that came with it now, doesn't render the entire cycle of 2015 bad. Let's see what's coming around the corner. I'm pretty sure they won't turn the back to us now until LW3D 2016 arrives.

    Or we can get to work with the tools we have now and see if they work for us and if they don't find a software package that will get us to where we want to go. For sure speculation and guessing is not going to get our work done.
