    Watching the live stream and all it has up now is the "Together we change the world" screen. Is the live stream over? If so, not sure what to make of the fact that Newtek didn't talk of Lightwave. Is that good or bad? The Lightwave community is left in limbo wondering what's happening. Newtek and/or Vizrt need to speak up and let this part of the community know where Lightwave stands!

    Your wasting your time, they have been pretty clear in saying that it will be awhile before there is any lightwave news.

    I would say neither good or bad at this point.

    We're still fairly fresh into a new LightWave release so there's time for anything to play out yet.

    I think that depends entirely on whether most other Newtek products were discussed or not:

    If most weren't discussed, then Lightwave not being discussed isn't "atypical", so not being mentioned wouldn't bode good or bad.

    OTOH, if most other active Newtek products were discussed, and Lightwave wasn't discussed, then that clearly bodes poorly for Lightwave.

    So...which was it?

    It might have been different if this was SIGGRAPH, but it wasn't. And even if they had taken a few seconds out from discussing the many video news items the audience came to hear to just just mention LW, would that have really changed anything? Or would we just be subjected to a bunch of people calling it meaningless lip service, which in effect it really would have been?

    I understand people are anxious for news, but beleive me when I say it's going to be a while coming.

    Why? Because this is a matter of trust, of trusting that your investment of time and money is not going to go to waste because of a business decision.

    In the end, the client is an investor, if you do not give confidence to the investor, he will leave.

    I feel you're fustrated also, but LW was coming out of the hole, giving hope and confidence to users, and suddenly this.

    Despite eagerness for LW news I do not recall any 3D software ever being discussed at NAB, which tends to be hardware video based with cameras usually stealing the show (at least where I browse. ). Software coverage tends to be more like Resolve, etc.

    Well with all respect I wasn't expecting much after three attempts to rewrite/readjust things, dunno why people are always put so much faith into something while clearly the writings are on the wall. ...and no, I'm not pessimist even tho been talking how bad things are, just looking at thongs as they are, not "how can we be amazing in 10 years time" it's here and now that's responsible whether I've got food on the table.

    All this uncertainty isn't anything new to the LW community but its damaging. I can't invest in software I have no confidence in and it's why I and many others made the jump to other software a while back. Unless this recent upheaval reveals some significant changes/announments in LW soon I fear others will definitely jump and it will definitely be curtains for LW. I keep in touch just in the hope that one day I can use my beloved LW knowing its a healthy future. Who knows, turbulent times I guess.

    when xSI went down the drain, people were still using it for years.

    LightWave would be no different.

    some are making a too dark image of the situation.

    Hello kitty does not pay my mortgage. I'm not being pessimistic, just realistic, as a freelancer.
