Five was blue and white, Six was red, Seven was White, what will 8 be? Any guesses? I thought Matt did a great Box rendition...

*reads the list of features on Matt's LW64 box*

What, no "Art" button? :D

Hmm, actually I think mine will look like a small sleeve with some CD's in it. Don't think I'm getting a box this time around...Or do we get a box with the upgrade without paper manual?

Last i heard from our reseller was that we´ll get a DL link for the update around NAB, and the physical cds with content in July.

Proton was hinting at a blue box.

I read too that the package will be ready in June or July, but i'm not quite sure where i read this...i really must have Alzheimer :(

Anyway, i didn't get a Box with my LW7.5 update (well ok a DFX+ Box *lol*) so i'd be very surprised if i get anything besides CDs if at all...
When i ordered it said LW8 will be a download.

I'm hoping for a brown jiffy bag. I don't care what colour it is, as long as the postdate is sometime in the next couple of hours.

Hey Matt it's Lightwave 64 bit or 64 release? because if so, i think well' never see your box in our short life...:D an app like that should think for us, when released.

seriously, i'm more interested in the box content than the box itself. :)

64 bit! Did it for a G5 thread ages ago as a bit of a laugh!

The 'feature list' was a whole bunch of functionality people wanted at the time of writing (and some of my own!)

We can dream . . . . :)

You could put "8^2" to somehow fit that 'fact' that Lightwave 8 will be 64-bits (and no, I don't know that for a fact, or have any insider info on such.)

I never saw a picture but there was a thread started with people designing their own box designs and Proton showed up to say he knew what color it was and spilled that it was blue.

I don't remember him posting a picure of the box. Policarpo posted a VT3 box that was pretty nice but no LW 8

Proton had a blue LW logo behind a Proton "toy" some thought this could be the manual cover or box design.

Looks like NAB the may set 8 free.

It's the manual, but the manuals always look like the box ... of course this was awhile ago.
