    If Metamorphic was made available for 2015.3

    Since I'm close to figure out a way to make Metamorphic works under LW 2015.3 for users who are not planning to update and/or postponing updating to LW 2018
    So to determine the feasibility of such effort, I'm asking this simple question:

    Who would buy it?

    NOTE: If you own Metamorphic for LW 2018 already, then there's no need for you to vote. All other users of LW 2015.3 who really wanted this plugin please vote "Absolutely!" because the number of users will help me take the decision to support LW 2015.3, because it is not an easy task.

    I have 2018, but if I didn't I would still go for it!
    Its does stuff that Cage deformer and Chronosculpt does.

    If you can do this it would be of great benefit to to users. 2018 is drastically different than 2015 and not everyone is able to switch their pipelines to the new version.

    You might be surprised there might be more 2015 users than 2018.

    He probably meant
    "It does stuff that Cage deformer and Chronosculpt doesn't."

    Who are the 3 losers who voted no?

    My worry is that there's a small audience for 2015 and you'd have to also look to a solution for 11, 10, or even 9 to be worth your extra development time.

    If I could vote (felon), I'd choose "not really". It would be nice to use in 2015's renderer for an odd job but I'll be buying it for primary use in 2018. We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things.

    I might be interested. I wont be upgrading to 2018.


    Just funny everyone is going off about how theres something special about 2018 architecture that it was impossible to do in 2015.

    I'm interested. I can't risk a full production yet with 2018. Not ready to make that leap yet, even though I upgraded. Baby-steps!

    There's no conflict of ideas. Metamorphic is "taking full advantage of the new mesh capability of the modifier stack" and supporting 2015 is "not an easy task". If 2015 was inviting to this function, this tool could have been here 3 years ago.

    I'd rather see the OP concentrate on the future, not the past.

    NOW, if those mired in 2015 were willing to PAY UP FRONT, I'd say go for it. IOW, fund the 2015 development. But as a gamble? No.


    Decide on a profit point. Put it out there. Get the funds, FIRST. Develop. Everybody happy and compensated.

    I will buy it for 2015.

    For my point of view, 2018 renderer is not production ready.

    With such a small sampling of users that come to the forums I doubt you'll get numbers from the pole that you can trust. Basically I'd be surprised if after 3 or 4 months you'd get 100 respondents to the pole. Nobody comes here anymore. I didn't vote because I don't have the need for the tool - 2015 or 2018.
