Meh. They moved stuff I used in modeler, and honestly I've decided to jump ship to Blender. Blender is not going anywhere no matter the success of any business model.

Lightwave has lost it's studio cred which means I can't find a job, and they are going to have trouble staying in business.

If my 3D is going to be a hobby that can't pay for itself at least, then I need to look at more affordable tools, and Blender has a much better support community.

Still on 10.1 here, guess that's where I'm staying since Newtek can't sort out their customer service department.

I've never had an issue with customer service, but then again I don't seem to run into the install issues other experience either.

I couldn't get them to honor the upgrade price I was elligible for after they canned Core. All I could ever get from them [when my emails didn't fall into a silent abyss] was the same response; told that I needed to log in to the store and instructions regarding how to do so, regardless of what I wrote or how many times I attempted to explain that I was already logged in, and that logging in wasn't the issue. After three or four rounds of trying over the course of 6 or so months, they won, I gave up. 

Only things in LW11 I really had a use for was the upgraded Unity support, and instancing. Bullet would have been fun to play with, but I didn't have a particular "need" for it. Maybe when LW12 rolls around if the upgrade price hasn't climbed too high, I'll upgrade then.

Just started work on changing a story over to a script. We'll be doing that while putting the charactors and sets together. Hoping to chop the short story up into small pieces of a few min each. Throw them up on youtube as they are finished and then edit them together for a long ver when the least one is done.


Seems a fun and managable way to do something like that with just a few people.
