    I'll up that to - no boiling AA + render times less than an ice age. Vue 6 was a severe disappointment in both cases and honestly felt no faster than Vue 5 under Rosetta.

    I have 5 and 6I and planned on getting XStream this go around until I saw the price. Due to past support issues and the beta nature of their software in general, I'm not buying until a few months of posts are spread around. They are also going to add features and charge all over again for 7.5 in a few months. Do you suppose they are going belly up and this is panic pricing?

    Anyone who buys now, please keep us informed. Not all of us have Studio budgets or wants. Some of us just want to create art. I feel for future students if the prices are trending up. The big studios will have in effect a trust of sorts.

    Many thanks to NewTek for thinking progressively the other way.

    Well, it looks like Vue 7 is finally out, and full details are available:

    It does look like there are more improvements than I was expecting, and some seem aimed at the kind of things people have complained about here.

    However given their track record, I'm certainly holding back to see if they have really delivered.

    I wouldn't go around counting those chickens just yet...
    especially due to the word of E-On.

    The word is just getting out from those that got it and it isn't stellar.

    I'm hearing that it's almost undistiguishable from the last rev and that you'd have to be a real pro to notice anything truly different.

    Still waiting on the flickering solution that they claimed would be in 6...

    I'm just saying, before you 'donate' your money to these guys...
    wait for some reputable sources to tell us that it's truly improved.

    I love the new OGL, you can finally see your terrain detail in the viewports.

    "if that works" it'd be a milestone.
    Always wanted to traverse the ecosystems but you just couldn't without going through stuff.

    So...Andy...you got it and are running it?
    Or are we all still looking at the pictures on their site?

    Oh sorry, I don't have it yet. Just speaking from what I saw on their site. I'm impressed with the update from what I can see, but again it all depends if it is actually going to work.

    Currently banging my head against the wall trying to render a scene in Vue 6 with this nasty flickering splotchiness I just can't seem to get rid of, no matter how high the settings.
