    I'm just gonna say - though a lot of people are frustrated that Rob & the Dev Team are a lot cagier than they'd like about the state of LW dev and their internal roadmap, I'd much rather see that than have a product manager who promised the earth, but only produced a broken, unusable app that was in a pre-alpha state and Osbourne'd the company's current main sellable product.

    The new pics are great, and I'm really excited to have a good alternative to hypervoxels. I'm more excited to hear that integration and architectural improvements are going to make an appearance in this update. I'm doing quite a bit of projection mapping and set extension these days, and LW's non-integrated modelling causes me a lot of headaches. So hopefully we'll see some changes on that front. And maybe even a unified Undo stack?

    As for the new pricing structure, yeah it could've been handled better. I think it's better to - as reasonably as possible - encourage all users to be using the most recent version of the software. I'm a pre-charter user, and am on 2015 already, but even if it means me losing my "special" status, I think it's worth getting more LW users current by dropping the upgrade price to $299 (post LW2015).

    I'm totally unimpressed with the timing of this thread Rob. It's 1.30 am here and I was about to go to bed. Now I'll just sit here and hit refresh for a few hours
    Seriously tho, well done Rob and congratulations to the entire development team. Can't wait to see more and hear about all the changes. Kudos guys and gals!

    Its somewhere in this forum.
    Substance is more than the static texture outputs. Integration is vital since most appz are sharing its base features and sbsar files.
    Dynamic, animatable effects.

    even Iclone and Fuse have Substance technology.

    Wait, let me get my really small violin to play along to the 'everything else has this' song Well I made a nice compound, I can't do magic with nodes

    Great to hear Lightwave has a new render engine! I can't wait to get my hands on it to learn it and test it! I'm also very curious to see the new Lightwave UI that I assuem Mat has been working on these past few years! Lightwave would have to have a new UI in this upcoming version wouldn't it?
