    Your Black Friday 2018 Wish List....

    So what deals do you think will be in store for us this year come Black Friday (and through holidays)?

    I personally hope that the LW 2018 Upgrade will be 50% off. I haven't upgraded from 2015.3 because Octane handles many of the LW 2018 updates, but would certainly like a couple of goodies in LW 2018. I just can't justify it at $495. Also, it would rock if LWCAD was on sale. I'd love to get a discount on that as well.

    Share your wish list!

    Lightwave 2018 upgrade was offered at a discounted price of $295 for a limited time when it was released. I'm not sure if you will see that price again though. LWCAD also had a group buy in to get a discount through Liberty 3D back in July but it's over now. LWCAD for $349 US is still a great price for what you get in my opinion but if your patient sometimes there are LWCAD promos.

    You can usually find Black Friday discounts from companies that sell 3D assets.

    RealFlow for sure. I missed out on the 50% discount for FIFA.

    The initial offering is always the best value, if we're willing to trust fresh software (there was a decent window to run it for 30 days and purchase within 90). We get the software at the cheapest price and have the longest access to it. If this discount is offered again, it may only be to grab a few more sales before the next release is offered. I'm hoping Newtek moves to a quasi-subscription model by offering a yearly release. That would help revenue and development.

    I've been using the latest version of the Real Flow plugin in LW 2018 and so far it seems to work.

    Updating Poser would be nice, for those times when I need some 3d peeps in my renders... I have v8, and I imagine it has come a long way since...

    Adobe CC.. would also be nice to get a CC deal at a better rate than the normal 20% they offer on Black Friday...

    Black Ink would be kinda cool to have as well... Anyone have that?.. You likey?

    Quite a long way. If you get one of the Pro versions of Poser, it comes with Poser Fusion for Lightwave, Maya, 3DSMax, C4D, and others. It allows you to import Poser scenes directly into Lightwave. Geometry, textures, and animation data. I've done a lot with it and its great if you can't rig your own characters in Lightwave.

    Good Luck

    I recall Smith Micro offering deals on Cyber Monday instead of Black Friday.

    Is that the file named: PzrForLW_2016?

    Or is there a newer version now. I haven't worked with Poser much myself in the last few years. I do have Poser Pro 11 [2014]
