    Just funny everyone is going off about how theres something special about 2018 architecture that it was impossible to do in 2015.
    Actually there's a MAJOR change of how mesh is accessed in the new architecture, you can directly access the actual memory locations of the internal LW mesh structure in a flat linear memory model that can be read and written to in random access manner and from multiple threads.
    In the 2015 version I had to emulate that which will not be quite efficient.

    How much of a hack will it be, and how stable will it be? LW 2018, so far, is rock solid with the plugins I have purchased. LW 2015.3 I can make crash in 5 minutes of doing things.

    Why is it that when 2015 or 11 was the current version people were soooooo jolly and saying its the most stable app they've used compared to xyz app?
    When they(2015, 11) were current they were the greatest best bang for the buck among all the commercial app out there.
    Now 2018 is out 2015 is sooooooo unstable and all that crap.

    Is this a smart phone product?

    Lightwave in general is stable because its stayed the same in the past few years.

    Which is why I said I might buy it instead of saying definitely will. But 2018 needs a lot more than stability for me to want it.

    If 2015.3 users want this capability, they should put their money where their mouth is and fund development.
    They only call it 'class warfare' when we fight back.

    This isn't LWG, it's a third party.

    i was very angry with LW10 /promises/bug & the marketing associated... With lw2018, it is another story : i totally agree with the previous potitive posts : it works very well and his new cpu renderer is excellent (with some CPU cores of course : on a 7940x it works like a charm and the render outpout is so good (montecarlo GI), i prefer it to octane in most of cases)

    Hi jay3d

    Within 2015, would all the procedural textures be available for sculpting? (if sculpting even would be part of a 2015 release) These: http://dpont.pagesperso-orange.fr/plugins/Textures.htm

    Hi Jay3D, Just to control my hope, how many 2015 users do you need for considerering a development?

    "how many paying 2015 users do you need for considerering a development?"

    Fixed it for you.

    As noted by others who are doubtful of people being willing to part with cash, this would probably be better handled as a gofundme type of campaign than a forum poll.

    Best of luck with Metamorphic, it’s great to see an alternative / companion to corrective morphing in LW. It has enormous potential. The more you can push it towards basic Zbrush / Sculptris functionality * with animation* the better. Personally I hope you can devote your time to pushing the boundaries in 2018.
