    Have you tried one of the sample TFD scenes.
    I tried a couple today and they show up in OGL, VPR and render.

    I did find if I disabled the Fire shader, just smoke wouldn’t show if illumination was on.
    Illumination had to be set to none in the smoke render tab.

    NodeMeister does not work with 2020, but DB&W put out a paid 2020 update that restores compatibility. Worth it.

    Thanks for the info about PaintWeight + TFD.

    Indeed I still had PaintWeights 1.0.5 installed and with 1.0.6 it works fine. Updated all other 3rd Powers plugins too.

    TFD - I removed and reloaded the plugin - now it work! Same version, same type of test scene, works fine now in VPR and F9. Thanks!

    More plugins:

    - TrueType Text --> doesn't work, dialog opens but text is not created, works in 2019

    - ShiftKeys+ --> works

    - db&w --> Thanks for the info, there are 2020 updates. These guys need to be supported, updated my licenses!

    This shouldn't be a big concern, the restrictions are lighter for third parties, we can still make and update plugins with discovery mode. I upgrade when I can or when it's absolutely necessary.

    Just to clarify things. We were a bit surprised by the release but will be able to offer upgrades to all plugins tomorrow. Patrons will also get a 2020 compatible build this week.
    It's also not just utf8 support for text, but additions to the attribute system that may affect whole classes of plugins, even if they don't use attributes.

    Cheers,
    Mike.

    Interesting. The scene in my previous picture, which renders black is a scene that comes with TFD. Now I tried a new setup from scratch and it works. It renders in VPR and F9.

    Do the lights light up the smoke?

    I am not using TFD that much that I can answer your question, but you can provide me a scene and I can check. One thing I have noticed is that Layout doesn't crash anymore when you edit (in VPR) for instance "Smoke Mapping" like Kelly Myers shows in that video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihBUKP8gCL0

    Hope it continues that way..I was fed up with the mapping and crashing as well...but is it still slow to tweak, it was horribly slow, if I compare to other software that is.

    I am currently working on one 8 core Xeon from 2013 and editing those curves with VPR active feels pretty comfortable. And stable.

    Hi Michael !

    Thank you for the fast response and the updated db&w plug-ins for Lightwave 2020 !

    The small update fee is a smart move and very welcome.

    No, the light does not light up the smoke.....
    It is only illuminated when fire shader is on.

    Thank you for testing and starting this thread. It's very helpful to know this information. This is one reason I get nervous with upgrades because I know it might affect many of the plug-ins I've come to use and appreciate. On the 3rd Powers site, it actually displays compatibility with 2020.
