View Full Version : Cartoon Character Creation Book

Can anyone tell me what is happening with the Cartoon Character Creation from Wordware for Lightwave 8? According to Amazon.co.uk it is out with a a few weeks delay on the order, where as on the Wordware website, it is still listed under Coming Soon?!? Is there any webpage for it with details that I can look at?

I just received an email from wordware (as a preorder customer) notifying me that the cartoon character creation book has been split into two books: one book will be on "Modeling and Texturing" and second one will be "Rigging and Animation"

The split is due to some difficulties in publishing the book as one. Yes, it will cost me additional money, but I'm glad to see even more books for LW!

Man- I'll tell you a book that I can't wait to see and I WONDER IF I EVER WILL.... and that is the Wordware Lightwave 3D tips and tricks book. Ordered the dang thing sixteen years ago- way before Lightwave was even sperm. And now I find out it won't be ready till JUNE 10-

Grumble, grumble....

what about the people like me who ordered to book from www.amazon.co.uk due to it having free shipping compared to the red carpet shipping costs of wordware outside usa?

will my order:
1.not behonoured so i'll get zero books sent
2. will wordware send out two books to amazon customers
3.or will i get one book...if so which???

some sort of clarification would be nice as i'm really waiting for this book/books set of books...!!!!!

BTW i ordered on 30 april on amazon...maybe if amazon orders can be converted to wordware orders [2 for one] and we just pay for the expensive shipping to the u.k that would be a fair offer...

a word from word ware for amazon customers would be a good move.
