Very cool. I read the tech specs, but it doesn't mention if they support multiple video cards. Does anyone know? Gonna try the trial out.

edit: update released, stability issues are gone :thumbsup:

Like the concept, I don't see any way its going to catch up to nuke, flame, or compete with the nucoda,pablo,baselights of the world.

Trial v3 is on the way (as they writting on lightstream forum - with few new features and fixes).
Good, because I did have this slow-downs at some point in more complicated projects :/ I reported that (they said workaround is to restart, takes 3-5 sec, so - not a big deal for a brand new product). Anyway... its so fast and open-in-mind. They should give themselves a favour, and work much on documentation and tutorials, because it is so precise, and has so many gems you can find accidentally (enought to say is about Broadcast node able to play hours of renders smoothly from disc, or Intensity support in effects - wow ! ). With the competitors like Adobe or Autodesk the should understand importance of marketing.
But, site is updated contiunuisly, and I found on you tube first few videos - for me... looks better every week. Go, guys, make a mess! :)
