Dear Friend,
I'd find something a bit more worthy to do with your time than help a commercial company to succeed. How about donating to, or working with a charity that needs help?

I mean, I appreciate enthusiasm as much as the next bloke, but I doubt very much your individual efforts will have diddly-squat effect on whether LW blossoms or not.

also if you ask Soth nicely he will render out your work for free if its a charity ! and if he still in the country :)

How about doing a lot of beta testing and reporting every bug along with providing example scenes in order that the next release of LW is as solid as possible.

There are a ton of things you can do to help. It depends mostly on your skills.

1. You could program a plug-in that makes it more powerful/easier.

2. Get good at one area and write good tutorials

3. Make informed suggestions on features that would make it better.

4. Help other people on this forum with their questions.

5. Make great images with it and let other people know what you used to make them.

6. Train someone with potential.

Those are a few off of the top of my head.

Dear Friends:

Thank you all for your answers.
My favorite ones are:

-get good into one area and write tutorials. (wow maybe I can become
like Dave Jerrard !!! )
-use it everyway you can and mention is made on lightwave.
(I can post on youtube !!! )
-do some beta testing.
-help the artists, not the company !!!

Solve world hunger.

That's an easy one, and as a bonus the solution also solves the problem of what to do with the world's nuclear stockpiles. :D
