    Thanks for clearing that up Oliver, well we will have to wait and see, what is and is not in 2020.

    The LW python blog entry says "the next major release of LightWave will also be the last version to support Python v2". Aside from functional changes to LW that have little to do with python, we're mostly safe with OD Tools python compatibility in the next version of LW (2020?). After that?...

    Thanks for posting that, Oliver. I do appreciate all the work you put into OD tools and making it available for everyone. It is a mind-boggling array of tools! I'm new to 3D and still all-in for LW, so I appreciate the tools.

    So they are changing to Python 3 but still with support for Python 2, so its obviously the NT implementation of Python 3 in LW. Anyway good news as far as i am concerned as long as Olivers tools all work. Its not Just ODTools but also Uberpass which i could not do without now.
