View Full Version : Teetering on the edge...

02-05-2009, 12:08 PM
I've been using Lightwave professionally for a number of years now, since v.6.5, but I have never personally owned it in my home and I've been pretty much close to just buying it very recently.

I know there are a lot of threads about CORE right now, but I haven't seen anything that answers what it means to first time buyers.

Did I hear correctly in the video that owners of 9 get a year membership for free? I watched the video and, correct me if I'm wrong, I can, (as I see in the store) still buy 9.6 and then upgrade to Core, and choose whether or not to get in on the HardCORE membership?

Would I be served at all to wait and just get CORE, or go with 9 and upgrade? I've waited this long to purchase it for home, if I'm better served by waiting I will.

Thanks for any suggestions.

"For everyone new to LightWave your full LightWave purchase at US$895 also comes with access to LightWave CORE™ and all the HardCORE™ benefits for a full year."

Sounds like an excellent deal... and you'll be more than happy with LW 9.6.
