That's pretty cool. Of course, happy to see that finally.

But I also just realized, isn't it kind of sad that we're watching sneak peaks of undos? Hah.

Eat your heart out Alias! Mmmm. Multiple undos.

That was a joke right? Multiple undos vs. a true history? Hope that was a joke.

What was so 'difficult' about this that they couldn't do this before? This is one of those 'shoulda been there' things that shouldn't even be listed as a feature. It's like saying 'come see our 2003 model car- now with seats!'

Hehe. Yes. Just joking. That's why I said it seemed kind of sad that undos are the content of a sneak peak video.

Like Shade said, not really a "feature" to advertise too loudly. Lightwave users should discretely acknowledge the arrival of multiple undos by the exchange of subtle nods of the head amongst ourselves, then quietly sweep the whole thing under the rug never to be mentioned again.

Maybe it's a good thing that the old developers left to go start Luxology.

If this is any indication, Lightwave's future DOES look bright!

As cool as it eventually is, the jokes will never end
I know a few Max/Maya guys who make Jokes of that on a regular basis.

If you notice the interfaces Duce posted had a drop down menu next to the undo. That makes me think there will probably be a history of some kind. But then whay didn't lee show that?

I don't know.

Did someone notice the new buttons on top?
Print?? What does it do or what is it for?
Did they move the camera settings (renderoutput)to its own tab?

I think that is a personal set up. Lightwave 8 is supposed to have a Dynamics and Rigging tab which aren't there.

Well, LW is not the only professional program with an historical lack of multiple undos, Photoshop anyone? But even PS got a history years ago, which pretty much negates the use of a plain multiple undo feature. There's also still the question of what exactly we will be able to undo? Manual position changes, numerical inputs, changes to graphs or expressions? Only some or all things we do every day in layout?

In the end this is more of a "its about time" than a "whoah" feature, but I'll sure appreciate it once its there. Kudos to Newtek, LW8 is shaping up good right now IMO!

the lack of undos in layout actually helped me bring myself back to reality once and a while. as you all know, there are no undos in the real world.

<whisper on>
About *@$%&* time!!!
<whisper off>

Wasn't there a post or article many moons ago about the fact that LW had the ability to do undos/history through the ability of Lscripts to record each action in Layout? It seems the potential was always there.

I agree, it's probably a good thing that NT got some new blood - let's hope they don't get "complacent" over time as the original team did.

chikega,

yeah, it was a technique that I figured out a long time ago and posted a really crude (and rude) tutorial about. The tutorial has long since been gone though since it was rather rude and the technique itself was far from useful. It was very cumbersome and just a pain to pull off.

Just for nostalgia's sake, here's the thread on the old newtek forum where I unvieled my "tutorial", http://forums.newtek.com/discus/messages/2/7914.html? . Man, I like reading the thread, people actually call me a genius in it. Wow. Alright enough patting myself on the back for a really lame tutorial.

After the technique was there, a gentleman started an LScript that made multiple undos possible in Layout but I'm not sure whatever happened with it.
