FPrime - because it completely changes the way you work in LW. Especially the FP-G2 combo!

i don't know if this is still considered a plugin but...
I like the Text Layers tool coming with LW 8.3 ...

I prefer to see plugins as tools that serve my needs and do a specific task than a collection or a list.

How can someone compare differerent things ?

I think the point was simply to reflect on the changes made to our workflow in the last year or so. FPrime, for example, is an interesting milestone for a lot of people. "Wow, my 3d life really changed when I got FPrime!"

whoops my mistake - i ment supersplit not easysplit ( see told ya it was a simple thing but its so much faster than having to do it manually ) guess i saw easysplit and figured that was what i was thinking about

So this is like the Ocsars of Plug-ins? Would these be the Pluggies? This should be a thread to determine the nominees, and then make a poll to determine the winner.

Yeah I think you're right.
Some reason I thought it was just what plugin was your fav in 2005, not just released 2005.

it should come with LW, ...least last time I checked.

it's an image processing plugin. Basically it simulates what would happen to your scene if you had left the lens cap on the camera.

I'm confused, too. I voted for FPrime for best commercial plug of 2005 but FPrime was released in 2004 as well. Usually when there is a Best of {insert year} I akin it to being the best of that year. And since 2005 isn't over yet maybe this should be "Best LW Plugin Award - 2004"?

Oh well, they're all pretty good!:thumbsup:
