View Full Version : Education users can't upgrade to LW8

02-25-2004, 06:04 AM
As a multi-seat, multi-year educational user of LW (I teach animation) I haven't found any resellers who offer an upgrade to LW8 and thus I can't participate in any of the bonus offers.

Does anyone know of resellers who are offering pre-release upgrade offers?

Im an animation student who's had educational copy of LW for about 2 years. I contacted Newtek back in December about an educational upgrade, and was told it wouldn't be a problem. Anyways, I was told though that if I wanted the DFX or REALVIZ, now bundles I'd have to pay the full commercial upgarde price of $495 US, but I would also then have a commercial lisence. So.. ya.. U dont need a commercial copy cuz no one should be making money at the school from the software, but thats the only way to get the bundles from what ive been told.

Educational license holders can upgrade to LightWave 8. If you contact our own Sales department at [email protected] or 1-800-847-6111, you should be able to find out about upgrading your multi-seat license and the qualifications for any specials.
