View Full Version : LW n00b needs to know basics!

08-31-2003, 09:05 PM
Any good online guides/explanations on 3D modeling in general, like bump-maps, textures, lighting etc. for a begginer? I am going to get Inside LW, but I would like to know the very basics, before I start learning about LW in paticular. Thanx:)

Have a look at www.flay.com first, it has all the lightwave resources you could ever need!

i just found this earlier today:


scroll the page down and see the "download links" and get the
LW 3D 7.5 Help File

it's really a huge file 87.7 MB, but it's also huge in the inside,
pretty much covers all stuffs written in the manual, but in a prettier colorful format... one best thing is that it has a 'search' for the topic you're looking for.. so really useful rather than scrolling down .pdf file of the manual. ( this "help file" is pretty much the same with any other software's help/manual)

so hmm i don't know, u decide whether the file size worth your time or doesn't... but my saying... get it :)

good luck and take care

Well, if you own lightwave, your manual's the best place to start.
