    but how many business people visit these forums daily and expect information? there will be thousands of customers that have no idea that next is coming because they don't visit the forums or subscribe to newsletters, so how can those customers be unhappy? all I see is about 20 or so main posters in the forums, so are they really upsetting their entire user base by ignoring those 20 or so (me included but I'm not that unhappy now as ive read between the lines, found some tiny snippets of inside info and reset my expectations)? now I just come here to stir the cauldron, mwwwaa ha ha ha ha

    Hey, I didn't say it never snows in Tucson, just implied that the odds are bad.

    (it was in the nineties when I posted that.)(Or so a friend was posting on FB.)

    Yeah, I know, it was just a feeble attempt to lighten the mood around here...

    I've been doing some sleuthin' and it is my feeling that Rob and team are engaged with the production staff on a current sci-fi production that is keeping them quite busy with support for said production; in order to put the new LW through its paces to ensure that it is production ready.

    Lightwave newsletters have never been used to provide forward looking information on the software, this shouldn't come as a shock.

    I'm annoyed as the next person about LW3DG's vow of silence but seriously all the usual LightWave is dying crap talk gets old. It was old 10 years ago and its old now.

    rustythe1 - possible. My time line for LW Next release would be at the earliest Jan 2017. That would give prod team 6 months working with the new LW (their work period is Aug 2016 to April 2017 according to google searches). Next release time would be Feb/March and then April 2017.

    Plus, that gives time for promo material for LW to say "hey, LW Next used in new sci fi series, look at images!!"

    and exactly why they have to be silent, they cant tell us anything new as no one is there to do it, and they cant tell us why they are not there because of NDA, (we are busy working on stuff that is all good, is more or less the last response we got)

    the good thing is from this is that there could be a lot of new tools turning up as they may also be continuing a bit of development on site, that means it could be getting a lot of artist input, that could be good all round.

    Yah, that's what I'm hoping is that tools get refined and some new tools get developed. One can hope.
