    LightWave 2018 Announcement - Discussion Thread

    Hi there,

    Thought it would be best to set up a place for you all to discuss the release news.

    Sorry too many marketing lies and empty promises the past 2-3 years for me. Not impressed at all.

    Okay! I'll start!

    Everything revealed so far looks awesome, curious to learn more.

    2 things - proper undo implemented??

    And - there's no mention of the new geometry engine that was shown off in the blog. Was the new geo engine abandoned??

    Thank you,

    Proper undo would definitely make me upgrade. But fat chance they're in.

    So who's upgrading?

    I'm looking forward to the new rendering engine and also the native VR camera! Since the rendering engine has been overhauledjust wondering if there is a rounded edge shader in LW 2018 now?

    No communication. No thanks.

    I will add this:

    If you "don't want to dwell on the past"; and let us in on why the blackout occurred, why should we trust that you'll not be doing it in the future? NewTek literally has no leg to stand on here. You're asking us to blindly trust you....yet again.

    When you know you're a "cup half-full" kind of guy:

    "Sir; they've got us surrounded!"

    "Excellent! Now we can attack in any direction!"

    If a proper undo has not been implemented, count me out. Been studying Blender this past couple months, and I'm impressed. 2.8's real time renderer is phenomenal.

    Please have a proper undo stack.... It's 2018..?

    Would someone on the dev team be able to fill us in on some of the workflow improvements that have not been covered in the blog?

    What a crowd.

    I'll be one that upgrades. While I am 'upgrading' my learning with Blender and maya, the muscle memory and tools here make a lot of my work get done faster. Modeling in maya has been interesting. Quad windows in blender help but, again, muscle memory gets it done quicker elsewhere.

    Whining for months about no news and when there is it's more whining. I'll be upgrading, too. Whatever newness is available is welcome.

    3 years and the UI has still not been fixed? Not to mention high res screen support.

    It doesn't seem to bother LW3DG, this is a screenshot from their release material:
