    LightWave 3D 2018.0.4 is Available

    LightWave 3D 2018 users: the fourth stability update, 2018.0.4 is ready in your account: https://buff.ly/2pN8EVw

    LightWave 2018.0.4 (Build 3067) Final Release Change Log - May 01, 2018

    2018.0.4 will install into its own directory. 2018.0.4 uses the same license as your 2018.0, 2018.0.1, 2018.0.2, and 2018.0.3 license - just drag-and-drop the license into the interface of 2018.0.4 when first launching 2018.0.4.

    Bumped product version to 2018.0.4.
    Set the build number to 3067

    Added a set_sunspot_time.py script which demonstrates the use of the SaveServerDataByItemID and LoadServerDataByItemID commands.
    Updated the 2018.0.4 installer to install the VS2012 Update 4 redistributable if the Python site packages are installed. The Python pywin32 package requires it.
    Updated the OS X Installer script to enable creation of 64-bit Installers, if the OS X version allows for it.
    Updated the SDK docs for LWSurfaceFunc's byObject and objectLib. Noting the requirements when requesting for a cloned Primitive.
    Fixed object replacement triggering animation re-evaluation during an animation evaluation. As well as causing object replacement to be done twice (and therefore twice as slow), it could also cause random strangeness to occur such as meshes not appearing to update in viewports.

    LB-2940 FBX loading wrong Allow user to replace missing image assets.

    LWB-3517 TC_153 FX_Collision seems to be broken
    LWB-3562 Random occasional crash due to attribute system adding node plugin update events after the plugin has been marked as destroyed.
    LWB-3674 obj replacements don't get feedback when you turn VPR off
    LWB-3688 Loading fbx crash
    LWB-3702 Modeler crash when importing FBX files
    LWB-3710 Layout View is, when you change to VPR, do not switch multiple cameras
    LWB-3717 Loading a FBX file from Evermotion (sample) crashes Modeler
    LWB-3726 Corrected a typo in the Modeler PRIS _move_code() private function.
    LWB-3728 The Modeler PRIS boundingbox() function now accepts a 'selected_only' Boolean option for finer control over the values to be scanned.
    LWB-3764 Modeler crashes when trying to open this model
    LWB-3768 FBX importer in Modeler not working
    LWB-3787 Crash when importing FBX into Modeler
    LWB-3797 Saving a lwo model to network drive extremely slow
    LWB-3822 Corrected the typo in the Modeler PRIS jitter() method.
    LWB-3826 Tumbling Viewport VPR with MIS on is slow
    LWB-3832 Startup delay LWB-3836: Spline motion controller not updated correctly when an item is deleted in the scene. A stale index into the scene tree was being used.
    LWB-3837 Particle info node is broken
    LWB-3846 MDD reader looses time when scrubbing
    LWB-3847 significant memory leak during rendering with motion blur
    LWB-3849 object lib doesn't work with null (shape) objects
    LWB-3852 Localized issue QuickBolt missing resource tags added.
    LWB-3854 Huge memory consumption
    LWB-3858 Garble non-ASCII character contents path.

    Purrrrectly normal. It's a designed thottling effect actually so not everyone jams the telegraph wires & ether all at once trying to get the latest update. Some things can wait. A well rummpled lap had better stay put if it knows what's good for it.

    Found the first bug already. When adding an image to an area light and then adjusting the image values in the image editor all values of the light output remain unaffected.

    Another bug is: After having dragged the license key over to the license prompt window, after opening Layout (or Modeler for that matter), does nothing, as far as removing the prompt.
    I have had this problem before, but I don't recall how it was fixed.

    Time to give the OD Tools utility a try for migrating. Have to go watch the vid again; not sure what all was covered. Dang, not sure which tool it even was now but know I saw it. Well, someone's bound to know if Oliver doesn't poke up.

    Unset and Set the firewall rules in the 2018.0.4 bin folder (command line as admin). If you search this forum you should find a post where I explained in detail.

    NewTek: Great work on providing another timely fix pack, thanks! Looking forward to see the fbx import fixed.

    ah HA! It's OD_Config. Oliver promised to do a video and he didn't! At least not found under that name. <I knew I hadn't quite lost it>.

    I know, right!? There are like 400 different plugins in the OD pack (what a wicked deal, works out to something like 50 cents per plugin) and he keeps adding more.

    I wonder if there is a “OD_MyCatIsTooComfyToMove” plugin in that pack and it automatically goes to the Newtek site downloads, installs the update and tranfers all of the config files and plugins over.

    Hmmmmmm might be worth suggesting.
