Hi Folks.

I'd like to put a request out to anyone doing tutorials for Lightwave 2018, that being for a Node Editor tutorial.

While I've been aware of node editors for years, I've never used one before and now, learning Lightwave 2018, the node editor is very integrated into the software in many areas, from surfacing to lighting to animation. I'm very new to this interface. I understand the inputs and output and linking things together, but with so many options (and I'm glad they are colour coded), it is initially a bit daunting.

I followed the tutorial in the documentation about applying an image to a surface, my first real time using a node editor. I did manage to figure out applying the bump map myself but I'm definitely a beginning with this interface.

If anyone would like to do a quick tutorial to just help folks like me who are new to the Node Editor, that would be appreciated.
