Yes I am sure this has been asked a million times before but.... Is there a list of good free tutorial sites? I am new at this program and need a bit of basic help and would like any info on modelling tutorials

Thanks in advance

this has a very long list of tutorials: http://members.shaw.ca/lightwavetutorials%20/Main_Menu.htm

Also, google is you best friend, you should get results if you do a search on "Lightwave 3D tutorials".

Lastly a fellow member of ours, silkrooster, has a long compiled list of tutorials and I expect he will be posting in the near future.

HI csoars.

Have a look at Silkroosters pdf in the follow thread for a start.

You guys are more than welcome to post the actual pdf file. Also on the links page of my web site is the pdf file as well. Any problems finding the pdf file let me know.

Thanks guys - there are some good sites here. Also looking for libraries (if there is any such thing)

What kind of libraries are you looking for? For books, if you don't have a local book store several web sites such as amazon sell LW related books.
There are some texturing libraries in the works. I beleive Both Newtek and spinquad forums are starting one. Once there finished I probably will compile a list of those as well. If there is enough interest I may even start one.
If you look on spinquad you will find some excellent links for references to create objects.

There was a library for furnishings for Autodesk - I thought there might be one for Lightwave as well. Ready made "things" that can be used is house drawings etc.

A texture library would be good - I have been collecting these as well

Newtek has released since some time ago a series of texture images, they need a bit of tweaking to make them seamless, but are nice and useful and free. http://www.newtek.com/freestuff/index.php

I'll see what I can come up with for a list.

Here is what I have so far. I know there are more links available, but right now they are excaping me.
Hope this helps,

Thanks Silk - I gotta say I appreciate your contribution to just about all the threads here.

Thank you, I try, but some subjects are left to those that are better qualified to answer the threads. And there are a lot of people who fit that discription.
