There isn't supposed to be anything great about those functions. NewTek is just releasing the occasional video showing some of the enhancements & new features coming in LW9. Those 3 clips are in no way intended to showcase some groundbreaking functions, rather they show current LW users a couple of workflow enhancements coming in 9.

It's still slated for Q4 2006, right ?
Surely they wouldn't leave it till after the deadline has expired (again) to announce a delay ?

I guess the real news is NewTek haven't been bought out by anyone.


Did anyone else get the LightWave [9] flyer in the mail a few days ago?

I'm overwhelmed by your HUGE love for Lw here, guys !!

Well i still keep thinking a new subpatch algorithm supporting ngons, and edge support as an item are 2 good enhancements for Lw.
CCTV shader movie was also a good one.

These are only the first movies before showing some of the cool enhancements Lw 9.0 will have.
Some cool things has been showed during Siggraph and put online on the Newtek website.


It could be playing some catch up, but Lw hasn't died yet.

Some catch up? It looks like that is all Newtek is doing. Maxon just announced and released a demo of the most innovative commercial hair solution to date, and Newtek is just now giving thier users the latest and greatest from 1999. The presentation of those videos is pretty amatuer too, just a file listing on thier ftp? no thumbnails and descriptions? Do they realize that non-LW users are going to be checking these videos out? this is a chance for them to advertise and make an impression.

It seems everytime a new version of LW is released, it announces 1 1/2 years ahead, then announce again 1 year later before it's released, then again a few months before it's released. Then when the released date is passed, no one knows that it has been delayed and a pin drop could be heard. It's the Yin and Yang of marketing - announced before it's done, quiet when it's not done.
