    Wow they've really upped the price on the extreme version. It used to be a thousand or so I thought. Wonder if Vue 7 is going to be a major step up from 6?

    Is there a major difference in the Pro Studio vs Complete vs Infinite? I love photo realistic landscapes but I wouldn't use everything since I mainly use LW. I think the only advantage to xStream is the integration of LW objects.

    Ouch, yeah better be worth it, I think it will take a lot to get most people to give E-on more of their money.

    I don't know. Everytime I see a Vue 6 picture, it looks sort of fake to me.

    I think it would be cool if LW could import Vue files that way we don't have to choose between $600 and $1500.

    You can export plants from Vue to LWO format. Including textures.

    The good thing it is the Ecosystems that Vue can create with their plants (really it works like internal instancing), that it is how it renders millions of polygons. Ecosystems can not be exported to LW on any way.

    Looking forward the day we will have instancing on LW renderer!

    They are probably waiting on all the responses(feedback) gathered from these boards. Really!

    that's quite a jump in price, from 900 dollars to 1500 dollars for xStream?
    Your almost better of doing everything in XSI and using Mental Rays geo instancing shaders.

    And what's up with those stupid versions anyway, i hate it when Autodesk does it, i hate it when E-on does it, always nice to buy a program and then noticing later on that a basic function is missing because the marketing team deemed it a 'pro feature'.

    Well, I for one wouldn't spend $1500 just to import LW files. I'm sure I could get away with the $400 version and never use it's pro features. All I like about Vue is the beutiful water, plants, clouds, and mountains. I'm sure I don't have to get the $1000 version to get that. Uggg, this sounds like greed is starting to take over E-on. I'm just glad Newtek cares enough about it's customers to earn a healthy profit but not take my first born doing it. LOL

    in the email version it saya there will be an intro price for xstream 7 .. Which is the only version I am interested in, presuming the lw integration is as good as the max.

    Not holding my breath-

    Thats just stupid pricing.

    And their upgrade process is so painful, (go right back to the first version you bought and work all the way up for a new box), that I won't go through that again, (though I guess they may fix it).

    The upgrade pricing historically looks to be slightly under half the full new price, but even so...
