Hi !

Just a simple question : I wanted to buy LW for quite a long time and I finally got the money !
If I buy it NOW (v10.1), do I get the LW11 upgrade for free ?

Reading that part of the FAQ :

What if I bought LightWave 10 a few days ago?

If you purchased LightWave 10.1 within 30 days of our LightWave 11 Pre-Release announcement on 11-10-11, then you are eligible to receive LightWave 11 at no additional charge. Purchases over 30 days prior to 11-10-11 do not qualify for this offer.

I would say YES, but I just want to be sure ... I don't want to pay for the upgrade in just a few weeks if I buy it now, and in the same time I need the software asap :p

What do you think ?

I am pretty sure that is always how they have done it with new releases. That is how I bought LightWave 8. 7.5 was the current available software and I got a free upgrade to 8 which came out a few months later.

But the thing to do is call Customer Service. Or email them.

They're probably inundated at the moment with emails. Might be better to phone them.
