    Yes, hang in there. Remember the alternative is to either starve to death or rent a pizza to look at.

    I don't know if this situation can be handled worse.

    With the latest versions of blender I actually consider to take the time to learn it more deeply. Then maybe I don't feel I need LW anymore or I will use both... who knows, time will tell.
    But the excitment I felt about LW when they started the blog has now switched to Blender with Eevee, sculpting and animation nodes.

    Siggraph would have been a very good moment to at least say something, but tomorrow is the last day of Siggraph...

    Not sure why you're including me on this, I have nothing to do with marketing.

    Cos you're a nice guy who cares about what he does and well, somehow, some way you might be able to talk some sense into someone but I doubt it. Decisions, bosses, company directives, something like that.
    Just know that customers cried out and said hey, restore my faith before I jump ship. There was a chance.
    Chin up though, I realise this is nothing to do with you and all I can say is I'm sorry.

    Quick example from my personal experience; I tried to have a shot at suggesting lightwave to a friend who was looking to add a 3D package to his toolset and directed him to the newsletter (thought the blog would be a turn off with lack of posts). He liked it but then read the pixel fondu site and looked at modo and its new features. Got a message raving about that and how it looked like it was getting some nice development and features. So he's gonna buy that. I tried. Communication matters and does translate to sales.

    I'm not in marketing but even I know that it's not a good move atm.

    Hope the ux and ui stuff is coming along well but it might not matter much as, after 17 years of lw use and loving it, i too am moving to modo and soon there won't be a return. At least you won't have to put up with posts like this but then there might be nobody left here, cos I'm one of the diehard lw wack jobs that blindly carried on using using the app all that time.

    I speculate that the next version may break all the modelling plugins and if that's the case (third party has held the fort so to speak all this time), that will be it no matter what the renderer is like.

    I think I'm rambling, take it easy

    Just delivered two draft animations to clients, using Lightwave, and the feedback was "amazing." Tomorrow I start on the main production scenes.

    It's just a tool, mang. Get the job done, how you do it is in the noise.

    The problem is when you are working with others and need a consistent pipeline. One mans show, sure but multi user teams, it is a very hard sell.
