    Ha ha ha. But that was exactly MAX unique selling point. The SDK you use for plug-in development is the one they use internally, and you can script most (if not all?) part of MAX.

    And they actually powerful and easy to use.

    Something LW continually got wrong, over and freeking over: functions not well exposed in the SDK.
    They only call it 'class warfare' when we fight back.

    It's the same with max script though.
    The guys at work are constantly complaining at missing functions or bad documentation, or bugs with max script.
    The grass is always greener... There is no perfect SDK, or software solution.

    Have they seen the lightwave sdk or know it?
    Their only point of reference is what they know. Lol.

    Oh... Haha... Lol!
    But my point stands... The LW SDK is missing stuff in the PRIS documentation, and the Virtools SDK was crap, as is the max script one, as it's missing tonnes of stuff too.

    Not sticking up for LW, just saying, every plugin maker is in the same ****** boat.
    Good coders find the problems, then report them to the devs, then they get fixed.

Which is full of humor and people who share tips, tricks and just being social, live on air. Lots of laughter and uniting of Lightwavers in general. Rene Falk Thomasius of the Daft Punk Renders is there, Ryan Roy, Andrew Comb, Steven Scott, the team from Black Holes and lots of other artist unite there and contribute in a more positive and social way. Hope we get you in there Djwaterman
    Hadn't heard about this group until just now. I have an account on FB but I don't have time to look at 1200 recipes, videos of someone's kid walking through the house or what people's cats do in their spare time so I am not active on there. Hopefully I can figure out how to join in for this though.

    Ernpchan's comment was hilarious: "I don't blame AD users for not knowing about LW. They probably spend most of their brain cells devoted to deciphering their license policy.

    I wonder what impact the lack of maintenance of this forum has? lack of updates, enhancements and actual communication etc that has an impact on the General Gossip that lightwave is sort of dead, by that I mean if there were more communication in here, the gossip may have been different...or maybe not, just wondering..or if it just is because of the long development or simply the old troll of users of the larger software that simply isnīt versed in whaīs going on in other 3d packages.

    So simply put, is this forums declination adding to the gossip fuel of lightwave being dead?
    Hmm..feels like I am repeating the same question in various ways ..just because Im unsure my message is getting through correctly

    doubt it, forums are just not what they used to be, in 2015 the forum often had around 2-3000 active users a day, and this mornings statistic is... 14. and on facebook, 35,000 people mentioned lightwave today

    yup amazed how many LW users I see elsewhere who I have never seen on the forums, but then I go to ArtStation and I see tons of Modo users I never see on the Modo forums, things are more fragmented these days

    LightWave Next showed up on cgchannel with an article about the blog. So that's good. But the first comment on the article was asking if people still use LW. So I guess the net result is zero?
