hello;

I understand 9.5 will have collada; I discovered one thread that suggested that the 9.5 beta is available currently - who gets the beta? when, how?

thanks

go to registration under the customer care menu at the top of the page.

As I understand it anyone with a 9.0 license can get the current public beta and then read and comment about it in the beta forums.

It's well worth it.

I downloaded the 9.3 demo, registered it;

then I followed to customer care, but I do not seem to see an option to "join the 9.5 open beta";


is it possible that it is only available to registered users of a fully functional v9+ ??

thanks

yes sorry I should have been more specific.

sorry if I got your hopes up. I just assumed you had 9.0 as you've been registered on the forum for a few years.

Are you using a previous version? If so 9.3 has a lot of great stuff that wasn't in LW8.

recommend the extensive video tutorials here http://www.newtek.com/lightwave/training.php?t=77002

I'm afraid we're not allowed to discuss specifics of the beta outside the beta forums

And besides which I know little to nothing about collada so wouldn't be use to you

However this press release indicates that Collada i/o is to be included within the 9.5 cycle

Your best bet would be to drop an email to support http://www.newtek.com/faq/index.php?email=cs
