Spotted on CGTalk..

Basically it's LW 8 with just a LOAD of books + DVDs. Looks like a good way to get started. Or a good way to build a library anyway.
I'd love to be able to buy the book+DVD bundle alone.

Just spotted this on the Newtek home page. It looks like a great deal. I'm really glad NT is doing this. :)

I think I have just about all of those books bar one. Buying them was the esy bit. Finding time to read them might be a bit harder :)

Hmmm, It looks like a great deal BUT!!!!, it's no good to people who allready purchased the upgrade!!!, like me....shame NT can't extend this offer to 8 owners, say a cut down price for the training material would be good!!! there is an option for 7.5 users to upgrade for $495 which is nice....surely they could knock together a package for 8 users?! I mean we only had 8 a few months ago..

P.S. I'll mail them.

Hi, Andy!

The offer is not available with upgrades, only full seats, as is clearly described in the PR and the sales pages. The mention of the upgrade price in the Pricing and Availability section of the press release is just an informational note for 7.5 owners. We routinely list both our special offers and regular pricing in that section.

Typically value-add offers are structured specifically to prohibit the separate sale of the add-in products. Add-in suppliers pretty much unanimously never want to allow that.

Hi Chuck

Thanks for the reply. What I was getting at was, it would be very handy if NT could complile some sort of training package to include books/dvd material etc, I imagine these would sell very well indeed, winners all round!! as you know these items are expensive (I know loads of work goes into producing them) but when theres 6 + books to buy + dvd's it can cost more than the software!!

Sorry if the post came across as a knock!!!, maybe the wording was a little out :-)

Cheers

Andy

I agree with Andrew. A trianing bundle would be nice. I have already purchased Inside Lightwave 8, but would strongly consider the whole package if NewTek was able to work out a package deal. Oh course... I'm still trying to get the hang of the new interface. Have trouble using Sas still :( and don't get me started on the lack of Cut,Copy & Pate buttons.

I would also agree,

I think it would be great if NT mabe a package with all thoes books and not have LW that way I would buy it.

Hey Chuck,
I don't suppose you could post a link to the individual items in the training package for those of us who already own lightwave. I can't seem to find Larry's videos on his site, and would be intrested in checking out the other items too.

Thanks,
Will

Apologies, but I provided incorrect links for the Larry Shultz videos. I have corrected the links in the post above.

Hi
I ordered my lightwave full version either on the day the tanning addition was released or the day before. From an Authorized Reseller.
I just received my copy today and registered it.

My copy did not include any information or coupons for the books or videos. Am I eligible for the promotion?

I tried to email tech support with my question. But I have not received a reply.
Should I call or am I just out of luck?

Thanks for any advice.
:confused:

Hope this helps a bit...

We wanted to post a coupon for KURV studios training and the Kaze DVD.

The coupon is good for 20% off our already incredibly priced videos!!

The code is "kurvstudios".

Please visit us at www.kurvstudios.com/lightwave to see what we have to offer the LightWave community.

and...

For guys dedicated enough to have a logo tattoo, the 20% applies to anything on the KURV site ;)

Didn't mean to inundate you with the same question over and over, not sure how I wound up posting it to two different threads... :confused:

Thank you. Kurv that is most generous. (I will be dropping you an email)

I did order my lw8 it seams on the day after the promotion went live, so I am covered.

Big thanks to newtek for helping sort this date confusion out.

Ií not sure where to post this.
But I did buy in time to get the training addition.

I received my videos from kurv. But I received 2 car studio volume 2.
Instead of volume 1 and volume 2?

I have tried to email kurv but some times my emails do not get threw. Alltel what can I say.

I was wondering if I could return one of the volumes 2 for the correct volume 1.
Thanks

Ah, okay, sorry about that I try to watch the spam folder for legit emails, but I get over 1000 spam messages a day so sometimes some slip through.

I am watching!!!
