Congratulations, LWG! Lots of good things there. And free for lw 11 owners.
Much more than I could expect!

Excellent release. While Lightwave 11 was promising, this feature packed Lightwave 11.5 brings the software back into the game. Love the After Effects integration, new softbodies and .... all the new features. Well done Lightwave Group.

Yes, congrats to the Lightwave team.

I'd like to know what has also been done UNDER the hood - how much integration of Layout and Modeler has been initiated in this release?

And what about FiberFX animation?

No Alembic?

I've never really thought about LW but looks like there are some interesting new features, especially on the modeling side. The heat wrap thing? Why didn't anyone think of that before? Also, their educational pricing is great.

Does anyone have any info on the learning curve for LW?

I'd say learning LW is relatively easy. There's a wealth of training material and helpful people on the NewTek forum.

A LightWave artist is often a good generalist because learning the different areas of content creation is pretty easy.

I don't use LightWave, but this looks like a solid release.

The renderer in particular looks good (DOF/Motionblur examples).

Well done, Newtek folks!

Wow, great job! Really cool new features. And it's free for 11 owners!

If this were Autodesk it would take at least 5 versions to add this amount of features and it wouldn't be free at all. You know, you've got to keep those subscriptions rollin'. Otherwise, where's the money going to come from for ground breaking features like "egg spline" or the ability to move your view while drawing a shape?
