updates 2018
« on: January 09, 2018, 05:08:23 PM »
exrTrader, farmeD and infiniMap have been updated. They fully work with the recently released LightWave 3D® 2018. You can buy the updates in our shop. Please ask for the purchasing link. Simply write with your name, dongleID and if possible your purchasing date to

Due to changes in the SDK of LightWave 3D 2018, the plug-ins had to be reworked:

exrTrader 2018 has been updated to support the new buffers made available in LightWave 3D 2018, including custom AOVs.
exrTrader supports the latest OpenEXR standard, including new compression methods.
We have developed our own buffer viewer for exrTrader 2018.

infiniMap 2018 works as expected and has been updated to allow for the use of projection nodes as well.

frameD 2018 has been updated and works as expected.

shaderMeister is not supported anymore.
shaderMeister depends on the availability of shader plugins. These have been dropped for LightWave 3D 2018 and no hooks were added to allow for global shading. This, unfortunately, forces us to stop development of shaderMeister.

db&w Tools 2018 have been updated. Material related nodes have been removed/replaced, since the new shading system uses a very different (and more modern) concept for materials.

All purchases within the past three months (October, November and December 2017) will receive a free update.

Update prices are as follows:

shaderMeister   n/a
exrTrader 2018   29 €
infiniMap 2018 Exr   179 €
infiniMap 2018 Pro   239 €
frameD 2018   59 €
db&w Tools 2018   free
