OK, I'm just learning lightwave and am going through the inside LW 7 book and am wondering if there is anything I would be better off waiting to learn until 8 comes out?

maybe hold off from learning the ik side of things from the book as this will change in lw 8....the lw 8 book should be out in about feb 2004 so will have that side updated or re written most possibly.

I'd say go ahead and learn it. Who knows when you'll actually get upgraded?

You should still read 7. I think the projects will be different in 8

Read 7 and learn what you have now. then, when 8 will be on the market you will have some esperience and learn easily other new stuff! ok maybe the rigging part will not be so useful, but infos about bones and other will be quite the same,I think.
