Hey, I'm not sure if anyone will read this, but it's better than nothing. I am a student with a demo of lightwave, and I have been utterly unable to find simple tutorials on it. I don't care about the complicated shading techniques if I am unable to work with the interface.

Anyway, if anyone knows where to find very, very simple tutorials on modelling objects, I'd be very greatful for the link.

This is a fairly comprehensive one.

Just remember there are people here willing to help out as much as possible. Once LW9 comes out there's suppose to be a demo available and it would be a good idea to get that when it's available. If you do a google search for "Lightwave tutorials" you'll probably find a ton of them.

This is a site with some basic tips to get started with. It explains some principles, if I remembe right.

Also, if you're a student you can get an educational license pretty reasonable if you're interested.

Vultus,

Welcome to the forum.

Yes, we read this and we're here to help. In case you haven't found Silkrooster's list of useful links and stuff, here is his latest post which has links to tutorials.

LightWave videos for beginners from Lost Pencil Anamation Studios Inc. Silkrooster has the home page link in his list of Lightwave Resources. But this is a direct link to what I think you are looking for. I have watched all of these video’s and found them all very good for beginners.

Howdy, and welcome.

If there's something specific you need to know, please feel free to ask any question at any time, and don't worry if you think it's too simple. (Believe me, we've all been there.) Posting a screen grab when asking a question will definitely get you more answers to your questions.

We are all happy to help.
