hi i have a student looking on ebay where there's a lightwave 3.5 for amiga for sale....
could he then get the ownership transfered to himself then upgrade to lightwave 7.5 or lw8?

for $495...

Well, on their upgrade page they only list versions going down to 4.5. But it's definitely worth asking! Maybe call NewTek directly...

If he's a student, why doesn't he just buy the student version?

hi he's a student but wants to do commercial work...that's to say paid work...

so he wants a full commercial version...i think the best route is for him to buy a full seat and get the 5 dvd's really.

let's clear some muddy water!
in the u.k whenyou buy lightwave 7.5 you also get 5 training dvd's that cover how to make a head, body,rig, animate and lipsync.

Any really old version upgrade is US$1195 I think.

Even better is the extended DFX/LW7.5+8 deal...

I am trying to get that in Canada... for something between 1900-2300 CAD + tax.
