View Full Version : LightWave v11

Is there any place one can find tutorials or instructions for some of the new LW v11 features? I just bought and downloaded it, but would like to know how to use some of it. Should I just play around - would like specifics thought.
I do have prior version back to 6 so I know the general idea but would love to learn instancing and flocking, are there any tuts out yet?

The latest version of the manual addendum for LightWave 11 is available on this forum. There is a slightly earlier version on the trail edition download page, which is also the one you should have got a link for for your purchased version.

I made a tutorial that shows a simple instances set up and how to vary surface settings on instances.

It's not an in-depth tutorial, but it shows the whole project from start to nearly finished. I don't get into AA settings or post processing.

I just bought this and started downloading it yesterday - looks really cool as it goes over the new features such as flocking, bullet dynamics and the like.

Even better, my order for LW11 upgrade shipped from NT-Europe yesterday at last!!!

Thanks all -

this new video training course is 10 hours of video at 720p resolution.
Basics in the beginning, then modeling, bones, instancing, flocking, fracture, texturing, lighting, volumetrics, flocking bats, bones, and more.

Sale ends tonight at midnight, $74.50 for the full 10 hour course, instant download. This is 50% off the regular price.

Note that projects are different than my LightWave 10 course on Lynda.com, which you can use for LW11 (of course, the new features of 11 aren't covered :)
