    As I have yet to buy but will I think the 75.00 is a great price! There is something to be said about mass market at under 100.00 a lot of folks will buy on impulse and use and talk it up. At over 100.00 a person starts to slow down and think "will I use it" "is it worth it to me"... So as LWCAD was less for years and grew in user base so I think you should not overprice your product but let it grow fast and wide in the LW 2018 community. Looks like a great tool and is I am sure and I will purchase soon.
    Thanks Wade

    Y'know, I think I see what's going to happen to Modeler.

    ++++++++++++++

    Question: is LAYOUT running the fabled Hydra mesh engine (whatever that means), while Modeler is not?


    And, just since I'm here: Jadim, you are a hero here!

    As far as I understand and NewTek stated yes that's the case.

    However while LW 2018 is quite good in handling large meshes, Chronosculpt is a whole different beast. It sculpts giant geometry like butter.

    Metamorphic (or better say LightWave) cannot handle such large meshes but has a good performance and offers other features (brush settings, easy keyframing etc.).

    Didn't this start out as just a "corrective morph utility"??? --Amazing. I wish I needed it.

    I didn't realize this was his only form of income. I'm proud to say I purchased it, regardless that Chronosculpt has been upgraded.

    Yes and do some (free) marketing, inform sites like cgpress or cgchannel, cgtalk, post on FB etc (in case you haven't done yet).

    Honestly, if Jay3D is able to add pazinting and baking options to Lightwave, and considering all that have been done, it seems quite probable he is able to do this with great efficiency, and if Metamorphic is his only source of income, I think NT should really consider bringing him in-house (maybe they did, ofc, only speculation and «*outloud thinking*» from me) because having these functions natively in LW could well be a game changer to attract new users or encourage current ones to upgrade to 2018 and after. I’ll buy it on monday when the paycheck’s here. I’m so fed up having my jaw dropping at each new update

    Curiosity: has anyone else had trouble with Paypal? I've spent a couple days trying to check out as a guest with a credit card (tried 2 different cards) but the form just refreshed to itself and never processed. Paypal's guest checkout was used earlier this week for something else and it was fine. I wonder if something is misconfigured for the metamorphic payment link...or maybe GDPR quirks just recently appeared in Paypal's form.

    I ended up going back and logging in with my Paypal account to make the transaction.

    Which plugins do this in 3dsMax... Non-linear morphing between sculpts?

    There's this built in: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwae_NgqZAk but it's nowhere near to Metamorphic.

    Anyway... Jamil, reckon you should post your Patreon link on here somewhere, I'm happy to support your dev work!

    Just purchased metamorphic and took it for a very short test spin. Absolutely fantastic plugin! I tried the convert to endomorph function and it works great! It can write over existing endomorphs no problem, So the corrective morph workflow for fbx exports to unity (morphs in morphmixer) is going to be completely painless. Also I love that it uses the regular old graph editor for key editing instead of its own timeline like the 3rd powers tools. Hoping to see pressure support for Mac, but wow! What a steal for $75. Anyone on the fence should just get it.
