    Hehe, thanks. I hope there is something for everybody, the tools, participating in the development and fleshing out new ideas, the q&a and even the banter.

    But if we didn't think it would be some fun along the way, it wouldn't be on Patreon.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    I somehow missed the vote for this one, but see the results and have no complaints. For the next round, should I be watching for an email at voting time or just logging into Patreon more regularly?

    Patrons get notified by Patreon (I think it's "[email protected]" or "[email protected]" that sends out the mails) of any post that we create or publish. You might want to filter those mails.

    I also make sure to post important links on our Discord server.

    Cheers,
    Mike

    Our patrons just receive the first beta of our plugin of the month for December.

    This is a Multi-Image sampler node:

    Can you please put "[POLL]" or "[VOTE]" or such into the subject line of the post indicating where to vote? The subject didn't really make it clear that it needed a timely reply. If we knew we could count on such a tag always being present in the subject for cases where voting was needed, it's much easier for users to set up a filter that prioritizes/categorizes it appropriately.

    Sure, I actually don't know how much beyond the subject gets send out.

    We want take the db&w Tools to the next level and we want you to be a part of it. Support us on Patreon.

    db&w Tools are a collection of plugins for LightWave 3D. Previously these were available as a free download.

    What We Intend to Do
    With your support we want to make db&w Tools even better:

    • Add a new plugin to the db&w Tools every month. We will allow you to choose between different ideas that we propose.
    • You will be a part of development - we'll keep you posted as we progress.
    • will host a Q&A stream per month as well as one live development stream per month.
    • If we meet our stretch goal, we can up the ante and add two plugins per month - or work on a single, larger one.
    • The builds you get will be personalised (your name in the about section) but not dongle locked.
    • You will get a discount of 1% on our regular products per month that you're pledged - up to 12%.
    • Join us on our Discord server, in a section exclusive to patrons.


    You can be a patron for as little as US$3 per month.

    Join us Now!

    We look forward to developing for you, with you.

    More information is available on our website and our Patreon page.
    Hi Mike,

    Glad to hear that Patreon is going to create new plugins. And I'm going to join the community too. Are you planning to work on the MultiMaths node?

    Best,
    Terry

    Hello Terry,
    we'd love to welcome you. Well, it depends on what the community votes for. Every month there's a selection of three plugins to implement, the one with the most votes makes it.

    Cheers,
    Mike - who still wonders how that spam made it into the quote...

    A Happy New Year to all of you.

    For those of you that are curious, we've just posted a round up of our first two months of having the db&w Tools on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/posts/happy-new-year-23653594

    Oh, you know what would be a really cool tool that we could use (and could have used AGES ago...)?

    A plugin which allows us to use a control object like a null and/or sliders to control image sequences.

    You'd think that someone would have thought of that ages ago but, nooo......

    Adobe After Effects had this option ages ago using 'Time Remapping'.

    So, I wouldn't mind a free or at least cheap plugin that does that.

    If you'd ever consider doing something like that, that is.

    Well, we have one like that for ages... framed https://framed.db-w.com
    It does exactly that plus more.

    Ayup, as a frameD customer pretty nearly since introduction, I highly recommend it for any LW image sequence work!

    (Mike, any hint as to when I might see a fixed Mac version?)

    That actually looks a lot like Magpie and that isn't really for what I was going for. It wouldn't be for lipsyncing but rather changing the image in the sequence using just a null or slider without having to open up a window or interface.

    I want to make a psuedo character creation set up using flat polys and masks but I don't really need to animate anything. It would only be for a single frame render.

    So, it is also pretty expensive for me just for a simple task unfortunately.

    If you are just looking at the image sequence editor, it may actually look like Magpie. However, the whole image sequence loading engine is what makes it happen.
    And since you can't "just" change an image sequence to a different frame within LW, the loader is also the only way to do that.

    Yeah, for single frame renders it's overkill.

    Having said that, even without the editor, it wouldn't be "cheap" since a lot of the development effort went into the image sequence loader, which (from what I know) is fairly unique to any 3D application with the support for proxies and a RAM cache.

    Maybe when you reply to my questions regarding the latest versions I've sent you.

    It's always nice to see how our patrons use the tools we develop with them. Mark Warner has posted a great video showing two ways to use the Multi-Image Sampler that we released as a final version a couple of days ago to our patrons:
