A plug-in is an external program that you use in conjunction with Lightwave to add extra functionality.

For instance you can get a plugin that adds camrea effects or water effects or modelling tools that lightwave itself doesn't possess.

hope this helps

Don't have manuals?

Let's play $10,000 pyramid:
Land ahoy matey. Shiver me timbers. Walk the plank. Arrrghhh. Mutiny's afoot.

That's right. Things a pirate would say.

but since you asked, you could try using your menus. Either modeler or layout/plug-ins/add plug-ins.

My guess is that it's got something to do with your crack. (software, that is...) Maybe you should play around with the standard features and if you find it nice to use and you decide that this is what you wanna do (either professionally or on a hobby basis), start saving up so you can afford the real version. You can get it for as little as 700-800 dollars second hand.

And then you'd have FULL customer support, no harsh comments from people who make a living of this and see you as the lowest scum of the planet, AND you won't have the software bugs (ignorance is bliss ;) )

version 6.0 CD key you say, not a very good pirate either!!!

I've seen cracks for 7.5 out there, not that I need them as I have a lovely purple dongle attached to my machine, along with lovely big manuals and a white box!

nice!

i wont comment on the piracy issue, i cant affor lw at all. but to search for plugins go to the modler and look for an option to do so, make the directory the plugins directory and blam that should do it. Might crash, the pirate edditions are less unstable. i rember 5.5 that was bad...

Im kinda in 2 minds about pritates, if someone genuinely cant afford it then to be honest id rather they used a pirate copy then not use it atall, as long as they do eventually buy it when they have the money. Maybe a bit controversial of me to say :) time will tell.

James..

EDIT: i suppose the arguement will be that there is the discovery edition for ppl to use if they cant afford the full version.

listen if you have money i dont so **** off
if you want to give me cd-key ok
and if you dont. i dont want your opinion about me ok?????

HI,

I need a copy of lightwave and need free manuals. Also, I am special. I dont need to buy it like all of YOU have. I am different than you. My life and needs are FAR more important than any of you trivial beings.

Sorry.. I just cant stand to see someone have the nerve to ask for a Lightwave 6 key...


SCREW YOU Pirate!


Ok, now THAT is harsh. And I make no apologies for it!

Hey Gase
I cant give you a CD- key for your crack(I dont have one), but you can ask a friend of mine.
write a private email to:
[email protected]
Just tell him I have sent you and he will certainly help you with your crack.

dont mean to push this way OT, but it's possible to oblige me, could you explain what you mean? or are you just joking? :)

I'm serious. A 17 year-old software pirate from a part of the former, war devastated Yugoslavia, now a struggling new nation, called Macedonia, where about 30% of the population lives below the poverty line and the average yearly income is a little over $ 4,000 should be treated with a lot more compassion. In his profile he says he has no job. The unemployment rate in Macedonia is almost 30%. Hes learning English and hes learning to use computers in a skillful way. Hes honest and up-front and for that he gets treated with cheap shots and laughed at and told to buy LW on the used market for "only 800 or 900 dollars". I only regret my assumption that all the nastiness was coming from Americans, but I stand by my notion that the tone was that of dumb affluence and ignorance of the ways of the rest of the world.

i agree very much. i think _everyone_ regardless of background should be treated with as much compassion as well. but for me, and i only speak for myself, a person should exhibit some humility. it's easy for anyone here to tear down a person for whatever inane reason. what more if you gave them a bigger target?

Oh I see, it's ok to steal when you're poor.

And yes, I'm an american.

Hrgiger,

You stole the words right out of my mouth.

In the last several years I have been fortunate to meet and make many friends from eastern europe, at my summer jobs.

One thing I have learned from them is that those who can afford computers are usually from wealthier families. They arnt any cheaper in europe and families make considerable less. For example, my friend who lives in the Slovak Rep told me that her father, who is an enginer, makes only about 500 usd a month (I can make more than that working part time). And computers there even cost more than here in the states. So, purchasing a computer for her family is like spending 3 or more months of salary. Thats alot to spend for something that isnt essential to life!

And those that I know, are university students and generally dont work until they graduate. This may be an unfair usumption, but I am guessing that if he has a computer to learn LW on he is proabably from a family that is not doing to bad.

Anyways, Stealing is stealing.

Hi guys... why are you all acusing him of something he didn't do... My dutch dictionary sais that stealing is 'to take away'. Now if he stole the software that would mean that we can't buy it, because he has it in his posession and Newtek would have to program Lightwave all over again from scratch...

Well damn you than "gase3924"!! because that way it will take forever that they can finally release LW8.

So if guys you do accuse him of something... Let's accuse him for copying the software... and that isn't as horrible as stealing :)

See ya..!!

Look at it this way - Newtek aren't losing a penny if gase uses a pirate copy, since he wasn't going to buy it anyway. It's either use a pirate copy, or don't use it at all. Piracy only becomes a problem when the people using the pirated copiescan afford to buy it, and maybe would have bought it if a pirate copy hadn't been available. I don't think the latter applies in this case.

Now I have heard EVERYTHING. I think I am going to go down to the car dealership and steal a car... I should be able to do that since I CANNOT afford a new car just yet. BUT, if I steal a candy bar, welllllll THATS a different story since I CAN afford one of those!!!

Throw the book at me!!! hehehehehe

Oh yeah, and what happens when this pirate who CANT afford LW gets a paying contract with it? What is the motivation to actually BUY it at that point?! Can you say ZERO or NONE?

ruud
02-24-2003, 06:18 AM
pointless endless discussion... as I said "fxmodels": Look the word 'stealing' up in your dictionary and read up loud what it sais...

Then search the word copy and compare those two... :o

Cars and software aren't comparable. When you steal a car, someone has lost it. When you steal software, no one is missing it. BTW, in these countries they usually still have to buy the bootleged CD from someone -- unless they know where to download it from. It is a matter of personal pride to buy the real thing when you can afford it.

And let the others go outside and go stealing cars... Because they think they can compare that... :D

Well, if you want to be technical stealing can be any of the following, and this is according to an american dictionary.

a: to take or appropriate without right or leave and with intent to keep or make use of wrongfully.

gase3924 has done this.

b: to take surreptitiously or without permission.

gase3924 has done this too.

See here in America, we have companies. They make products. The only way legally to come into possession of those products is to do one of the following. Own the company that makes the product, buy the product, have it given to you (by someone who rightfully owned it by these rules and not a software pirate), or win it in a contest. Just because nobody is missing a copy doesn't mean that somone hasn't stolen it. that's the dumbest logic I've heard in a while. But you're right, it is a pointless debate. Especially since you're wrong if you think it's ok to steal.

The original point is though, we who have paid for the software aren't really interested in helping people out who can't afford it or don't want to pay for it themselves. So hell yes, if someone posts on the forum about how to get a cracked copy of Lightwave, they're going to be flamed.

and i realy cant do anything here
i cant find LW or any books for LW

Gase3924: Firstly, you've been asking for info on cracks for LightWave on the official forums of the company that makes it. Whilst I'm sure that not everyone who uses these forums has a legit copy of LightWave, out of respect for those who do you should not be looking for cracks here.

Secondly, If it helps, you can email me your address and I'll send you a copy of the LightWave 7.5 Discovery Edition which has watermarked renders but is otherwise pretty much fully functional and will at least allow you to learn and practice. I have a spare copy of Aura DV I can send you also.


Whilst owning software such as LightWave IS expensive (even for people like myself in the UK) there are other ways to use and learn rather than pirate software. Sadly, NewTek does not have a downloadable version of the Discovery Edition yet but I'm sure it's coming soon.

May I suggest you also check out Houdini from Side Effects - their Apprentice Edition is available for download from www.3dbuzz.com along with a free online course teaching you all the basics and setting you coursework which will be marked by the tutors at 3DBuzz. Houdini Apprentice also has the benefit of rendering images and animations without obtrusive watermarks which you can happily use to put a showreel together.

Other free (and legit) options include Alias/Wavefront offering the Maya 4.5 Personal Learning Edition and Softimage has XSI EXP 3.0 - I recommend them both. 3D Buzz has numerous video tutorials for Houdini, Softimage & Maya should you choose to try them out.

You can download any version avaible (including updates only) from www.newtek.com and install it without a dongle and it will run in demo mode (Discovery Edition).

Ocassionally someone will offer a version of LW for sale in this forum. so check back from time to time.

sorry i still dont believe you actually paid for LW, I have seen all your post here and at cg talk, and amazingly one day you say you bought it from a friend... more likely you just found a better crack and got wize enough to stop asking such obvious questions.

I wont believe you have LW untill you scan a image of your dongle and post it... i know you dont have a scanner right.:rolleyes: such bs to have so many thieves running around these forum looking for help.:mad:

I've just read this Guy's 'heartbreaking' story about how his parents work so hard & he can't afford Lightwave.

Well I worked bloody hard to get where I am & I don't whinge about it, Jesus i'd clean the **** off people's shoes if I was desperate enough & no I don't come from a well off English family, my Mum used to work seven days a week to feed my Brother & I.

Okay, so now i've got my nice house, car, wife, two dogs & a good job but for 20+ years of my life I was pretty much always broke.

If you can't afford it don't steal it, save untill you can afford it!

I never liked this system of anonymous "handles". I subscribe to a user's group (DPSedits) where only posts signed with full names are accepted (meaning honnored by the group) and it works. There are no fluky messages and the level of discussion is very solid, professional and inteligent. This incident has taught me to more than ever distrust people who don't have a desire to use a solid name. What is there to hide?
