    There have been a few noted improvements that aren't brought up by the official demo videos. I wish I had the 2019 manual in PDF fashion so I could leave notes and bookmarks on what isn't fully covered. (Of course, that requires a pro PDF reader, which I won't purchase from Adobe.)

    I haven't tried it myself, but in the Microsoft Edge browser, you can apparently leave annotations and notes on web pages in Windows 10.

    There are other ways to edit a PDF. The default Mac preview app will do it.

    The announcement for 2019 says that the price from any previous version is $395 USMSRP, except if you are entitled to a lower price under the terms of a previous special purchase. If you bought the 2019 upgrade and were charged $295, that means you were entitled to that price under the terms of a previous purchase you made.

    To clear up another narrative that seems to have cropped up from nowhere - no, when the introductory pricing ends, that does not mean owners of previous versions have to buy at full price of a new seat. We've never done that, and have no intention of ever doing so. We typically have had tiers, so for example there would be a price for those who upgrade from 2018, and a price for those upgrading from any earlier version. We'll have a specific announcement on that pricing before the introductory offer ends. (Just for reference, I think that it was $495 and $595 after the introductory offer last year, if I recall correctly.)
    Where will that announcement present itself? Been on board since LW7, and it's great to see LW continue to develop. I want to support that progress, but sadly, money is indeed an issue. I purchased the upgrade to 2018 not too much more than 6 months ago, and it's hard to lay out another $400. Every little bit off will help.

    either in an email you receive, or here in the forums. it varies.

    The best place to check is to simply load up your account page on lightwave3d.com and look for the upgrade option for LW2019. There may be a button that leads to more info.

    Newtek finally sent a newsletter to announce LW2019's release. It's late but maybe it's something.

    Something must be off with their Communications Department. I just received another 2019 promo in my e-mail.

    I have the latest drivers that are available for OS X 10.11. That means CUDA 8.0.9, since the product spec says LW works on OS X 10.11 i assume thats OK.

    Can anyone point me at a structured way of learning the new stuff?
    I looked at the videos here: https://www.newtek.com/lightwave/2019/tutorials/

    But have jumped all the way from 11.6 they are assuming things I don't know!

    I think I need to work through a whole load of stuff, but a few things that have instantly tripped me up....

    My displacement mapped moon no longer shows any displacement.
    Where have my beloved dome lights gone?!
    Global illumination on my Jodrell Bank mesh now makes it look like it's illuminated like a disco ball!
    Volumetric lights in another scene became invisible.

    Having said that, new defaults seem a lot better, I'm loving the improved FBX import, and looking forward to using seriously huge images.

    I'd certainly be interested if there are any paid courses I could buy and download, to work through. Even if I knew some of it, I suspect it would pay off in the long run...
