I don't understand the first question -
But the second question, they are working on a 64 bit OSX version. They had more work to do going from PPC mac to Intel Mac, so it's behind.

I think the first part wasn't a question, but rather he was pointing out that LW is available in 64 bit for all Windows versions, but not Mac.

I get the impression he's not happy with that...

Hello

I have a related question, and rather than start a new topic I'll ask here.

I'm building a new system, and am looking for confirmation that the 64 bit version of Lightwave 9 works in all its 64 bit glory on Vista 64.

On the Newtek site, the "requirements" list XP 64, but no mention of Vista. Why would this be? Are there significant problems with Lightwave on Vista, enough for Newtek to avoid mentioning?

Cheers

I run LW64 on Vista Home Premium 64 and have no problems at all. As a matter of fact, it runs much better than the 32-bit version on WinXP.

I see question marks but I don't see any question...

These are generally *minimum* requirements. Yes, someone out there would try to run it on Windows98 =D

Thanks, that sorts me out. I just purchased and installed Vista64 and will now install LW.

I will shortly be back to this forum to ask or look for best tips for a beginner -- like best beginner tutorials, settings etc. I'm a bit nervous to be honest. Have not touched 3D seriously since 3DS4 DOS version, and a couple of attempts over the years to get back into it, I ran into the "too hard" wall pretty quickly.

Get the paddles out, we've got a noob!

You've come to the right place and the right software frypan, welcome! LW is one of the most intuitive 3d apps there is, and this forum is one of the most helpful there is, but study the manual first anyway - if you ask us how to make a box, ( yea it's happened ) you won't be getting a warm reception...

Yeah, no box questions, please.

We should allow him to ask how to make a teapot though if he asks, since teapot got lost somewhere between LW x86 and LW x64. ;)
