View Full Version : No LW9 beta examples?

Hmm, no posts on LW9 beta features?
Don't get it, I mean, no posts on the new improved Dynamics and the SSS?
Or did i just miss something?

I think you're forgetting the N part of NDA ;)

Any posts would have to come from within NT or be somehow authorized by NT. No one testing could post any info.

It's all about NDA (non disclosure agreement). It's forbidden to post ANYTHING considering LW9 beta if you have it. Such is life :P

I think you can post any rendered image, as long as you don't say "This is made with LW9". :p

Am I allowed publicly display work created with and during the LightWave v9 Open Beta?
Yes. You are welcome to publicly post imagery created with the use of the LightWave v9 Open Beta software. However, per the terms of the NDA, you are not allowed to discuss the fact that you are a member of the LightWave v9 Open Beta program of how the software was used to create the imagery.

Ah, I see. thanks for clearing that up.
Just thought it was funny not to have seen any dynamics test yet.
Guess I will have to wait a bit longer..

I think it's fairly stupid, to deprive yourself of free advertising,
the Open Public Beta, that has NDA's involved is a stupid idea.....
NDA's for closed Betas, but definately not for public ones...

For example: I can say LW9's APS system is excellent, Nodal is okay,
Vizier is fairly crap, Waterpool is good......I think Ngons are okay.....
Why am i missing half my procedurals, LW9SDK is useless....

And nobody can stop me... (cause i'm not doing anything wrong)

I think NT and the Beta testers are being a little over protective actually.....
I know i really shouldn't be allowed to talk about the LW9 Beta.......
As i did agree to an NDA..... or did i?

What NT can't proove, can't hurt me..... :)
So i might be using LW9 or i might not be......

It's so hard to tell these days.... ;)

But seriously, it seems like they are doing all they can, to hide features that their customers have been asking for, stopping people from talking about those new features is not that smart. You are not convincing anyone who has not paid for an upgrade to do so, if they can't see what they are paying for.....

I know several people who are NOT upgrading to LW9, until they've seen plenty worth upgrading for, and unless they can interact with the Beta forum, they won't upgrade...
I don't blame them either... ;)

Please don't start anymore threads asking for examples from lw9.
