    No it wasn't. I haven't used Houdini much. I tested it out and found it to be encouragingly easier to learn than I guessed, but didn't have the time to properly commit to learning it then.
    I'm caught in between deciding between learning Fabric and Houdini and at the moment am veryhappy with XSI, so havent been motivated enough to give either 100% attention.

    there's no doubt, Houdini is the way to go for VFX.
    not saying Maya-Max-xSI won't cut it though, and sometimes can be even better at Area X.

    No it's not ideal, you should be able to do this directly in LW, like this:

    Not sure if it is even worth to record and put up on youtube how you set up a simple fluid and export to lightwave with the Rop node etc?

    pages way back. at least that's what i recall. maybe things changed.

    would love to be proven wrong.

    a later quote is

    And before you start asking: I haven't decided if or when this will ever be released or not.

    Cool, many thanks for the clarification. I'm keeping my head above water on my current VFX gigs without Houdini (thus far) but it's rising higher and higher on my radar of things to add to my toolbox. In the interim I eagerly pester folks for their related insights.

    I am waiting to see what will happen with the next version of LW, and then I will decide what I am going to do with this.

    Why oh why would you not gift the Lightwave community by releasing this plugin?
    I would definitely buy it in the $300-500 range if I can atleast use it for lw 2015 and lw next. Future updates paid of course.
    We need a fluidsim in lightwave.
