    Will we have a Lightwave 2019 ?

    I know it's too early but I really would like to know:

    Is the development team working on a new version of Lightwave for 2019?

    I really would like to find on Lightwave the tools we have in all the other softwares, except lightwave.

    Wishlist:

    MUSCLE and SKIN deformers
    Native animation sculpt
    Weightmaps paint in layout
    Native cage deformer
    Animation Layers
    Better cloth and soft dynamics ( NVidia/Newton/Physbam/n-cloth level )
    Better particle and fluids dynamics
    Hard dynamics without pre-break
    Scene reference ( scene inside a scene you can isolate and edit)
    GPU rendering


    This would bring Lightwave back as a character animation software choice again.

    A poll was already taken by Newtek on what they should include in a new version, within reason, I would expect they will be following that.

    yes they are working hard on a new version, no there is no info available when and what it will be called.

    I would like have in LW3d 2019:
    - Icons
    - David Vrba would redo Napalm (particle system)
    - Better snap tools in Layout
    - Better "undo - redo"
    - Fire and smoke generator (but is not necessary, leave something for third party like JAWSET)

    . . . ?? And how do you manage that? I used to have my page set to dark background using an Extension for Chrome, but Chrome 'coughed up' a hairball for "Styles" app that I was using, and now I am stuck with 'way too bright, white,' weird brown, REally?? VBulletin, where are the choices to go 'back to dark?'

    I think that means the drop-down selection in the lower left-hand corner of this forum. I like BP-Brown.

    . . . . "weird brown, REally?? VBulletin, where are the choices to go 'back to dark?'" . . . . {Quoting my prior post}
    I find the BP-Brown dark enough, but I was used to slightly cool dark gray, using the Style Extension. VBulletin should offer that choices, or allow Users to easily to find this choice???

    NewTek did a great job on LW2018 though, also check out OD Tools for LW2018.
    Modeler needs an update / rewrite, and that might be next.

    it seems things are heading in the right direction, we'll see in 2 years or so.
