Thread: New blog post or release date information

  1. #1

    New blog post or release date information

    OK since we just came back online today I will start it off.

    When will we have a new blog post or release date information for Lightwave Next?

    Soon would be good, but seriously, I'd like it to be strong and deliver well on the promises, so even if it takes another "while," that'd be ok with me ...

    If not next week then never. Surely if they don't ship during Siggraph next week they've got some major issues. Its been 9 months since the first blog and 3 months ago they were so close to shipping that they could hardly give us the time of day. So Siggraph next week is their time.

    well they are not listed as contributors or anything on the latest downloadable program, and as it starts on the 22nd? not much time to set up shop, also no mention of any live streaming stuff around the same time so looks like 2017 will be in 2017

    Perhaps during Siggraph, but I don't see a pressing need for it (apart from us wanting it).

    In years past there have been a number of new releases during Siggraph from publishers that have not had a physical presence during the show. It's been 3 months since the last blog post and they said that they were so close and so busy that it was hard to post anything so the timing seems right unless of course LW Next is one big cluster @!$% and it doesn't work at all. Releasing during Siggraph makes good sense as there is a lot of excitement of all things CG during that time.

    well one release I will be interested in seeing is Clarisse is having a version 3 release at siggraph, i have been considering it for quite some time as it has crazy scene handling and rendering speed (and cpu like lightwave) and the fact it plays well with LW, in fact i think LWO is more or less its native import, it just takes a bit to grasp as its almost a new way of doing things, but its almost like a replacement/partner for Layout as there are not really any modelling tools, it used to be really cheap for what it could do but the price has been creeping up, but there is a free version with next to no restrictions.

    Today is the final day for the Vray for Modo 20% off deal and I am torn. Was really hoping we would hear something concrete about LW Next by now.

    If you need it, buy it. Spend money on tools you can use now, if you wait for hypothetical upgrades you'll never get 'owt done.

    well, news letter just out, and no mention of siggraph, or next, and yet another add a seat promotion, so, I think we are looking towards Q4 if its this year

    Seems that way. Not upset, just disappointed. Some straightforward communication from LW Group would go a long way.

    Great work on the latest newsletter, LW Group...those making of videos showcasing Lightwave are awesome:

    I was thinking oh new lightwave newsletter, there has to finally be some information on LW next by now. But no.
