Hi,

Could anybody tell me if this is a worthwhile upgrade to make?
And how much would this cost or is it free?

I'm curious as well. The only thing I've heard is that Rigging in 8 is a lot more simple for new users. The character animation tools and dynamics seem to be the main focus of 8. Everything else is just a mild improvement upon plugins and tools that already exist in LW7.5. At least that is my inexperienced impression so far.
If the Hub worked better on the mac, crashed less and somehow sped up my production, I would consider getting 8. By the way the upgrade to 8 is $500.

Hey there,
Yes I would encourage any user to get LW 8 now for OS X.3.6
Overall it seems a lot more stable and there are some great new tools.
My personal favourite is the bridge tool. It automatically connects two polygons together and deletes all the mess left behind.

Well worth the investment.
