Hey all,
I am looking for a supplementary manual of sorts. Just something I can look up specific nodes or shaders in, or any other random thing I need to know at the time. Any suggestions? And yes, I have the manual.

Thanks

I like 1001 Tips & Tricks for Lightwave3D[8] and Essential Lightwave v9.

Pretty familiar with Dans stuff, own most of hist dvds. His books are more of a tutorial type thing though right? Im looking for more of a quick reference.


Also are any of these book you guys are mentioning out for 9.5?

I saw this on Amazon. Looks very interesting.

I think there's also an online supplement for Angel's book that covers most of the material shaders. I don't think you need to buy the book to get it from the company's website. It should give you a good idea of the depth that Angel goes into with the rest of the book before you order it. This addendum may now be a part of the published book though, but I thought I'd mention it.

I find that I reference Essential Lightwave 9 on a regular basis.

If everyone filled this in (and I'm guilty as the next man) this would be an even greater resource:
