I asked about 2 weeks ago a few questions they are importand to me.
And i get an very fast and detailed answer from Alex. http://www.visionaire-studio.net/forum/thread/hallo-zusammen/
(But its in german)
One point was about the 2.5D question. It is almost done but it will take a while (its almost done and will be soon in the alpha stage if i translate it right).
Seems like the focus right now is to make it available on more plattforms, what is also very good and important (i guess more important for the most who want to use visionaire studio).
I also test right now another engine. But its only a 3D engine (Unity 3D) you have all you need for 3D but you have to program alot cause the focus is 3D.
Oh and i am doing this in Lightwave. So seems like we have almost all of the big ones for rendering in this thread
