Sitting here with my new version lightwave 9.2 and on my mac. I come from the pre-press photoshop world of retouching and color correction.

Point me in the direction of the newbie tuts and training and I'll try to keep the boards clean of silly questions.

Smartflix:

it's like Netflix for instructional videos. I've tried it and can vouch for it...$9.99 and you keep them for a week. May not be a long enough to fully learn a technique but it lets you try before buying certain videos...their customer service is excellent!

I hadn't heard of it until a fellow LightWaver told me...there's a plethora of categories too. Adobe, Combustion and other non-artistic things

The last time Mr. Van Dyke came to a user group meeting was in 2000 I believe
