I got a little lightwave scene, very basic of a spinning globe
with text and a picture on it.

I can render it out at 720x 486 and it looks great.

I'm making a animated banner for the web and it needs to be real small
72x72 pixels.

I went into the camera properties and set the width and the height
to 72x72. Then I rendered out to tga 32 sequence

It looks great in lightwave, but it comes out like crap when I load it into
speededit.

still new to lightwave what am I doing wrong?

maybe you can post some form of image to describe what horrible means.
tga32 has an alpha channel embedded, do you need an alpha channel on that sequence ? does it work if you save as tga24bit?

I need the alpha channel

can you take a object / scene you made
and render as 72x72 pixels and have it look good?

I will try to post later tonight

Maybe try scaling it down in Photoshop as an alternative?

Yes, there's no inherent problem rendering that small. There are aesthetic problems however.
