    When will 9.5 be out of beta?

    Tried the 9.3 Demo and have watched alot of of the videos, but haven't actually used anything past the feature limited version as I'd really like to see how FBX will wok out before I buy.

    Any chance 9.5 will be ready for Demo anytime soon?

    Those who might know an answer to that are likely not at liberty to say.

    If I were to make an educated guess. I would probably figure around Siggraph, just because it would be good marketing.

    From what I understand, a Chuck Norris avatar is the antithesis of the ever-popular cat avatar...

    Although, reportedly, having a cat avatar somehow improves one's 3D ability, or overall forum wisdom.

    I think SP00's answer was probably the best you'll get and is probably a very good guess.

    As for Mr. Norris, he was indeed in response to the ever popular cat avatar. If I remember correctly, the cat people were convinced that more cat avatars would make LW 9.31 come out faster. I, never being one to believe in the voodoo power of cats, did not oblige them.

    I posted my border collie's picture. She likes cats. She barked at Chuck Norris once, well, a guy that looked like Chuck Norris. Then he petted her and everything was OK.

    Perhaps I will make a gif that alternates between my dog and my cat. Yes, I think that would be best for everyone.

    I that case, we should all don cat avatars!

    I believe that Newtek is using more extensive beta testing to try and reduce complaints when the official release rolls out, so its kind of a 'when it is good enough' approach rather than 'by August 12' approach.

    Of course, it will never be perfect (or even good enough for the CD to be used for a coaster if you ask some of the less pleasant types), but NT is making (or attempting to make) some big changes to Lightwave, and there are speed bumps to that process.

    Siggraph would be a good time. LW10 needs to start developing soon. We're all anxiously awaiting that XSI/Maya killer that is like having Pixar AND ILM right out of the box!

    I hear that LW10 is finally going to have a slider to make objects more mysterious and a button in layout that will make objects appear twice as big and twice as far away.

    Shh! That was going to be one of our main features, can't have the competition getting a head start on us!

    Seriously though, it'll be out when it's out. Can't say more than that.

    Where are LW9.75 and LW10? How are they coming along?

    It was worth a try right?
