"the 3rd generation of e-on's Spectral atmospheric engine technology, "

Guess they added a red-shift slider or something.

Having purchased Vue 7.5 Infinite just a week ago I wonder how their upgrade plan looks like...

iīm for sure looking forward to vue 8.

And as far as upgrade planes go i know that people using the maintenance plan will get vue 8 for free and late vue 7.5 buyers will get a hefty discount, no idea of the timeframe for the late buyers tho.

I think the upgrade is the same price. If you have the maintenance plan - you only have the opportunity to pay once a year for upgrades. If you do not, you have the opportunity to pay twice (full and .5 uprades). If you decide to skip a 0.5 - I do not think there is a penalty. You just miss out on the .5 features and have to wait for the full point release to have them.

an impressive looking 3d terrain editor which is replacing the dated 2d based 7.0/7.5 Terrain editor is all iīve heard people mentioning when talking about siggraph.

Not much seems to have been posted around the web, not yet anyway

I've emailed e-on and they don't (yet) have a plan how their update policy will look like,
but I guess they won't let me pay again hundreds of $$ again.

I really hope they've done something magical with the terrain editor - from the tidbits I'm reading it appears they have. Even the Sandbox 2 Cryengine had a more sophisticated terrain editor than Vue 7.5, I thought.

Problem is, looks like their Xstream program is going farther and farther away from Lightwave, missing features and entire functions. And from what I see in other plugins, it's NOT Newtek's fault for lack of SDK Hooks into the program... it's entirely e-on's lack of desire at this point.

Wish I had the money to buy a lab of Vue 8, get the maintenance and express technical service, and force them to do my bidding as they advertise they will for people who pay up LOL - I wonder how much they'd tolerate from me before they go "look, we won't do that, here's your express tech service money back" ;-D

I find the lack of news... disturbing. Maybe the demo went horribly wrong at Siggraph - who knows!

I would much rather for them to work on bug fixes and stability than to rush something out the door. If they don't launch Vue 8 until next year and focus on fixing bugs in current versions and putting some more polish into 8 that is certainly fine by me.

Visit geekatplay.com to see some video of the presentation at Siggraph. I've only watched the first one so far. The new terrain editor options look good. Agreed that they need to wait to release it until it's got most of the bugs worked out.

Thanks for the link, I checked them out too. However, the video was so poor you really couldn't get much detail to see what was going on. They should've done a direct screen capture instead of being shot by video cam of the screen display. Also, the audio needs to be ran through a good software program to clear up the background noise, pops, etc. Iit is WAY too loud and needs voice normalization.

But at least you get a very rough, general idea of some things.

I suggested the "clipping plane as a mask" a while ago, so it's good to see it put in! *does the Gopher Dance* :p

As i understood the geekatplay people didn't want the link to be posted on other sites yet. Also i can understand the interest in Vue 8 news (as im curious too) their wish should be respected.

Sorry - I had no way of knowing that, saw the links posted on another site actually (not geekatplay). Anyway I removed the direct link. People can make their own way to the website if they're interested I'm sure

We originally wanted to, but we had a few stability problems with the workstation setup this year; mainly it would have slowed us down while presenting.

consider yourself lucky.

from what I've read and experienced, older Vue versions work better than 7.5

"upgrade" seems to be a misunderstood word at e-on.
