    It is good news, I can't deny it.

    If Rob has been shafted then that is terrible. Best of luck Rob Powers!
    I'm always 100% right!!!

    Great Read here: http://forums.newtek.com/showthread....ilence-is-over

    WOOT!!! Happy New Year!


    Hello from NewTek… the silence is over.

    Hi Everyone,

    You’ve waited a long time for news on LightWave from NewTek and I’m here to give you an update. I’m the VP of Marketing for NewTek, and I have been asked to help bring LightWave 2018 to market.

    I was counting it up the other day and realized that I have launched every version of LightWave with the exception of LightWave 11 and 2015, so you can argue I either know what I’m doing… or I’m simply crazy. Maybe both. While I’m busy with all of NewTek’s other business, I’ve always had a soft spot for LightWave, so I’m very happy to be stepping in here.

    Here’s the good news. The development team has done an amazing job with the software, and you’ll be happy to know that members of the LightWave 2018 beta team have already started using it to produce some of your favorite prime time shows.

    We also have an official ship date and time:

    January 1, 2018, 12:01am GMT

    I encourage you to read the press release you’ll find here. And to check out the LightWave website that has been updated as of this morning. We have other plans that I’ll be sharing over the next few weeks, but I really don't want to build up any unrealistic expectations. For now, I would rather under promise and over deliver.

    I also want you to know, I have read the discussions and completely understand your pain and frustration. Believe me… no company sets out to disappoint their loyal fans. What I find encouraging is that even though in some cases, you are outright mad, at least you still care. I hope you’ll give us the opportunity to earn your trust again.

    For me it is important that we focus on the future and not dwell on the past. I realize you may have a lot of questions about why things have unfolded the way they have over the last couple of years, but in all honesty, I do not know. I choose to live in the present and look forward to the future; I hope you will join me there.

    I will drop in every now and then, but I won’t necessarily be a regular poster in the forums. Although, I suspect you’ll hear from other members of the LightWave team more regularly.

    Here’s to a great 2018… where you will get to use the shiny new LightWave from the very first minute.

    Looks great! No mention of a new mesh engine or vastly improved performance in Layout. Can someone from Newtek please confirm there is significantly improved performance in 2018? If there is, maybe add it to the marketing material?

    $295 upgrade is a very reasonable price and after all these years should be a no brainer for everyone.

    I'm encouraged with the note of 'object deformations'. I really want to see some solid improvements in character animation. I know it's an old sub-topic, but it's really the only place where Lightwave really falls down.

    that is a curious omission. All of the other blog topics are covered, but the mesh engine stuff and performance benefits are missing.

    TrueArt's Global Materials http://globalmaterials.trueart.eu,
    and TrueType Text http://truetypetext.trueart.eu,
    have special versions for LW 2018!

    If you're already user, and you're interested please contact me ASAP,
    through Contact page at http://www.trueart.eu

    Original Global Materials and TrueType Text will stop working with LW 2018.
    Because LW 2018 nodes are incompatible with LW v9.x ... LW 2015.3 nodes.
    You need to upgrade to the latest version of Global Materials 2018 and TrueType Text 2018.

    Other TrueArt plugins (for Modeler) don't need special attention.

    Not I (unless they can explain the reason for the blackout....and not just blow us off).
    When you know you're a "cup half-full" kind of guy:

    "Sir; they've got us surrounded!"

    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction!"
