    Mac users: Please download again if you got the update prior to 4:30 PM USCT 3-July-2018. A crash when using numeric entries has been fixed.


    LightWave 2018.0.5 (Build 3068) Final Release Change Log - July 02, 2018

    2018.0.5 will install into its own directory. 2018.0.5 uses the same license as your 2018.0, 2018.0.1, 2018.0.2, 2018.0.3, and 2018.0.4 license - just drag-and-drop the license into the interface of 2018.0.5 when first launching 2018.0.5.

    Bumped product version to 2018.0.5.
    Set the build number to 3068

    Fixed the picking issues in Modeler not working at all with grid scales larger than 5km or so.

    LB-4697 Crash using scene editor plug-in to toggle camera stereo Anaglyph filter on.

    LWB-3641 SyncMesh gizmo picking was weird because picking and drawing were using different scales.
    LWB-3657 morphing (morph target) has weird behavior
    LWB-3715 ClothFX crash
    LWB-3796 LW2018.0.3 crashes on my Mac 10.13.4 when performing certain tasks
    LWB-3883 IKBooster menu no draw on Dope track.
    LWB-3907 OpenGL Update RefreshNow/RedrawNow not working with instances
    LWB-3914 Tree control move func not working (crash)
    LWB-3974 Rendering results in "out of application memory"
    LWB-3987 layout crashes when an instancer is deleted
    LWB-3998 "Not enough memory" error cutting mesh with two-point polygons
    LWB-4007 Memory leak in animation render
    LWB-4033 Shadow Buffer shows errors with Limited region On and the bucket size
    LWB-4065 Object crashes Layout when sending to Modeler
    LWB-4081 Crash when tweaking light samples on Scene editor
    LWB-4083 Deleting a camera could cause a crash because camera evaluators of other cameras in the scene became confused about which cameras they belonged to.
    LWB-4095 The MULTILIST controls require a different kind of value lists than other trees. Added the set_addr_int() function to address this.
    LWB-4101 Layout crashes when you try to access a surface's node editor
    LWB-4102 Opening the graph editor for an Advanced Camera could crash if no prior evaluation of the camera was done.
    LWB-4103 Modeler crashes when loading object with metalink node

    Thank you very much, I very much hope that the ClothFX back is fully restored to work in lw2018.

    P.S. Cloth FX still broken in Lightwave - in new build '3068' too. Cloth don't react with boned deforming bodies.

    Shot in the dark: could that be addressed w/evaluation order?

    I created a bug-report on this problem with the scene file and video demonstration and sent it all to Newtek's team. They already answered. Unfortunately, this is not the first time I have talked about this problem, but for some reason it has not been solved yet.

    ClothFX still has its place, crossing fingers for a fix...

    On Mac Any numeric input in Layout = instant crash, only tried it with Camera and Lights ATM, can scrub values just fine but anything else is out of bounds, I'm using a tablet BTW

    Also Numerics does not pop up in Modeler and any attempt to open it manually results in instant crash, either I am missing something or Mac users aught to be wary of upgrading too soon

    Same here (on mac). In Layout, I went to Utilities > Edit Plugins > then put the cursor in the top bar to type a search item - instant crash. Ugh. I guess I'll stick with 2018.04 til this one is fixed. Using a mouse.

    I submitted a bug report.

    In my case on mac any numeric input in layout won't crash only not changed the value, i must to change it with the little arrows next to the number. I tried it with camera and lights, properties.

    The Mac crasher is being looked at as a priority

    I can partially confirm this as well (encountered this last night, gave up until this morning). Here, putting in numeric values doesn't crash, but LW never accepts the value either (no matter if I press TAB, ENTER, RETURN, whatever). I'm seeing this in both Layout and Modeler, all entry fields in panels I can find.

    2018.0.5 Mac is a no-go in its current state, stick with 2018.0.4.

    Interesting, tried exact same steps here, no crash, just sits there without filtering the displayed plugins either (even after ENTER/RETURN, etc).

    Ugh indeed. Would very much like to understand the LW2018.0.x Mac testing process, or lack thereof.

    The delay between switching apps is still there too. 10seconds or so. Not good.
