View Full Version : Lightwave 9 Academic

I have a few questions about purchasing Lightwave 9. Would the academic version of Lightwave 9 come with Vue Infinite or not? Otherwise it would cost 500, the same for a commercial upgrade if bought seperatly. Also, I have had Lightwave 8 for over 6 months with an academic license. If I were to buy the standard upgrade of Lightwave for either the 395 or 495$ it would cost, would I then have a a standard commercial license of Lightwave 9? Thanks for any help.

When I phoned NewTek support in the U.S., the person said that the academic upgrade of LW 9 does not include Vue 5, and that if a person with an academic license (didn't mention 6 months) buys a normal commercial upgrade (which would include Vue 5), their license will be upgraded to a commercial license.

Same situation here in the UK/Europe, if anyone's wondering.

Thanks so much. I'm definitely getting the commercial upgrade as buying the academic version seems ridiculous.
