I use 9.5 demo for evaluation (day 3). How come I follow the steps of the glass bowl tut up to the point where layer 1 should be copied to layer 2 and nothing happens?
Please help.. :help:

If you copy an object from one layer and paste the exact same object into another layer, there should be no visible difference. Turn on layers 1 and 2, and it will just look like layer one.

You will have to look at the layer icons to see a black triangle in the layer icon. That denotes some information in that layer, whether a polygon, a single point, etc.

I think that tutorial is for an older version of Lightwave and the step you are questioning is no longer relevant though.

Tnx for reply. I guess u're right about the version. Any idea where to look for 9.5 tuts?..

A good set of video tutorials that will be relevant for the 9.0 cycle are found in the Tips and tricks section - sticky at the top. A good place to start.
