Hi there,

Does anybody have a copy of LightWave 6.0? I'm working on an old project that uses plugins that only work up till LW 6.0...

I own copies of LW 9.6, Core etc and have dongles for Mac & PC so I may be able to register a legit LW 6.0 version.

Have you tried looking on Newtek FTP site? I'd also email Chuck, he's usually very cool about sorting this sort of thing out. :)

Yes, I checked the FTP and they only seem to have 6.5 updates etc. Thanks, I'll speak to Chuck.

Ok, spoke to NewTek. They don't sell Lightwave 6.0 any more. Does anyone have a copy they could give me or I could buy?

You should be able to install the 6.5 update and run as full. Give it a try.

Lamont,

I looked in their FTP and they only have plugins for LW 6.5. Can't find an actual program install. Anyhow, I'm still looking for LW 6 if anybody has a dusty old version out there...

you would think they would give LW (old versions ,even 7 ) away to school and uni's via download .


if you wanted a current v9 version EDL it would be (x) amount with CORE Build as an additional extra

thing is lw7 is still pretty useful app and compares well to other current apps...we're still working mostly with 7.5 on venus rises as the director only has 7.5 his end in newyork

Agreed ,but V9 has so much more in comparison to LW7 and what about CORE EDL ? NT are missing something ,Blender Free ,AD students Free'ish ,even a basic free version of LW toned down would be nice, even just modeler would be sweet . open it up for script writers and 3D amateurs for free .Core is going forward and trying to be something new ,at one point or another there will be transition where the old LW will become redundant .........."not saying it's dying moving forward,would be a better term" before the Core rants decend .



OUI ?

I had a request via PM to upload v6 and link to this thread, but as I stated before, I want to make sure legally it's all good. So if NT doesn't mind, I'll be happy to assist.

I have installs back to v3, but I completely bypassed the dark ages of v6.

Heh, ahh, yes, the LW6 Beta debacle, must admit, I barely touched 6 and stuck mainly in 5.6 until 7.X came out :)
