LightWave 2018.0.3 (Build 3066) Final Release Change Log - Mar 29, 2018 2018.0.3 will install into its own directory. 2018.0.3 uses the same license as your 2018.0, 2018.0.1, and 2018.0.2 license - just drag-and-drop the license into the interface of 2018.0.3 when first launching 2018.0.3. Bumped product version to 2018.0.3. Set the build number to 3066 Corrected the Windows Installer script to restore the 'Custom' component-selection page. Corrected handle drawing on the Feedback Agent's 'enhanced' capture mechanism for displays with vertical resolutions lower than 1200. LB-834 in a different way. The old fix was causing significant slowdowns in switching layers in Modeler, as it invalidated the meshes every time the current layer was switched. LB-4666 Auto scene saving resets VPR LB-4667 If a previously added Scene task is no longer valid when the NRC Controller starts -- i.e., scene file, content or output path no longer exist -- it will not be restored to the Task list. LWB-3045 F10 render fails silently - if image saving fails LWB-3456 Motion render buffer did not work unless motion blur was on in camera and there was actual deformation at the start time of the frame.

LWB-3518 Can't change Motion Blur sub-frames value using the keyboard LWB-3527 Fixed slowdown when switching layers in Modeler. Meshes are no longer being invalidated when switching layers. Instead syncs for VMAP changes/add/remove are propagated to all meshes. Mesh validation is then done when layer switching to it, and only if needed, instead of always invalidating the mesh.
