:eek: Hey, Headcheese. Nice to see you again. I was quite surprised to see you outside the elYsiun forums. Heh. It's a small world after all. :)

I was looking for good beginner's LW tutorials as well. When I did a forum search, your thread came right up. Have you had any luck so far with the new app?

Anyway, like Headcheese, I'm new to LightWave, but not 3D. Hopefully these links will help me out. Thanks, everyone!

Hey Whiteboy, yeah ive been loving lightwave. If you havent already, get dave alban's book Inside Lightwave 8 its worth every penny. Try playing around with HyperVoxels. very fun. Any luck on your end?
