I'm a new to LW 7.5 and have a couple of questions.

1) What reference materials/books would you reccommend for learning LW modeling, animation and renderind?

2) Is LW 7.5 written to take advantage of Xeon dual cpu's?

thanks in advance........Mel

U use a dual Xeon?...never seen a beast like that!
Don't really know but I do not think that lightwave has a problem with Xeon or any Dual cpu.Actually lightwave is fond of multi processor platforms.Actually it runs much better.Still like I said ,I am not sure,never had the chance of using a beast such as this.:rolleyes:

As far as tutorials and lessons goes start searching the net. There are loads of valid tutorials out there.
Personaly I found really neat Dan Ablan's book "inside lightwave"
However I can assure you that NOTHING can be a substitute to the official lightwave manual that comes with your software.
I mean N-O-T-H-I-N-G.

Good luck...
