Hi Markc !

I got the update directly from Dan to test.
info at maasdigital.com

But in the meantime the new version 2.3 should be available on the download page for both platforms:
http://www.maasdigital.com/starpro/

Version 2.3 is for Lightwave 2020.
2.2 for LW2019....


Happy testing !

Regards

Marcus

Works like a charm on Mac also......:D

One issue on the website, if you click on the StarPro page from the home screen it only shows v2.2.
If you check the url and remove the forward slash you get v2.3

Thanks! Using latest Win 10 (Enterprise). Otherwise nothing special, click on the qckPck button or the assigned Q key and it crashes Layout. I was able to load the license before that.

I'll take it to a PM since I can't reproduce it.

Cheers,
Mike

Any news on Ubercam 3 for 2019 or 2020?
Last I heard only one camera had been updated, and I’m not paying for an upgrade with one camera.....;)

Hi Markc !

Pleased to hear that things are fine on the Mac side as well !

I cannot reproduce your URL issue.
Maybe the browser cache is not refreshing ?

I'm on Firefox and had no problems.

Yep, only that one so far... Chilton seems too busy with Glycon and making it click with all of the HMD´s in his collection I am afraid...
But maybe he just waited until 2020 is out. Well, one may hope... :-]

Just an update:
TFD 1427 works on Mac (latest build is 1443, this crashes LW as it did in 2019).
Saw a forum post replying to Kat on Jawset, and they say TFD is 2020 compatible.

‘There are currently no pending updates for LightWave.
The current TFD release build works with LightWave 2020. If you come across specific issue, please report them separately.‘

Hi Markc !

The TFD sample scenes Jascha supplies seem to work.

But some of my scenes and TFD training scenes from Kat do not work anymore in LW2020.

Hard to say what is different between LW2019 and LW 2020 that makes the projects incompatible.

I hope we can find out what is the problem.

StarPro Version 2.3 for Lightwave 2020

I really hope Starpro is fixed, I use it in 70% of my scenes at a guess!

Hi starbase1 !

Yes. StarPro is essential for me too on my current project.
I am happy it works as expected by now with the update.

Please test yourself and report here or to Dan.

StarPro Version 2.3 for Lightwave 2020 is available for PC and Mac:
Download: http://www.maasdigital.com/starpro/

Have fun !

Am I the only one confused by Jascha's "update"? 1427 works on Mac, 1443 is broken, but there are "no pending updates for Lightwave"?

Guess a WORKING Mac version of 1443 (even for LW2019) isn't seen as worth any attention. I'm increasingly disappointed by Jascha's support for LW TFD (Mac).

I saw your post on jawset forums John.
I have same issue with 10.13 and 1443.
Thought I would give it a go in 2020, but it bombs out immediately.

He seems to be concentrating on c4d......:foreheads

Which TFD scene have you tried?
I have most of Kat’s stuff.

Hi Markc !

TFD simple explosion.lws I checked when Jascha stated on Jawset forum that TFD works fine with LW2020.
It does show in VPR and renders.

So I provided Jascha with a scene which worked in LW2019 and in LW2020 not anymore.
Scenes from Kat training content seem to have the same problem.

Jascha looks into it.
By now it is difficult to say what the issue is.
So it is good to be systematic and deliver content to nail the culprit.

Today is an official holiday in Germany so it's a longer weekend here.
Please be patient and give Jascha some time to figure it out.

Lightwave 2020.0.0 is just out of the door and 3rd party developers need time and feedback to react.
Lightwave as well has some bugs to be adressed first to make some plug-ins work again like ODtools for example.

So.
Lots of great updates and fixes have already come and others are in progress.

Marcus

More TFD weirdness......
Tried rendering a sequence (simple explosion), it’s only rendering frames 1,3,5 etc.
Try to abort render and just hangs, have to kill LW to close.

Tried Flamethrower, works fine.......:stumped:
It seems to be a lot quicker to render though in 2020.

Mine simple explosion renders well from frames 1 to 130. It is just filenames that are 2,4,6,8..

EDIT;

No, you are right! Renders every second frame. And freezes on abort.

I hope that this is a LightWave error. I have little to no confidence that we will ever see any new fixes of TFD for LightWave.

EDIT;
Interesting is that "flame thrower" sequence renders fine.
