    Great stuff.
    I wonder how much you have speeded up the youtube showcase though? it sort of gives a (false) impression that lightwave is blistering fast to refresh.
    I also wonder how much coffe you drank in order to be so cheerful ?

    Cool RH great to see all is going well. I was a little worried when you went silent. This looks great. Thank you for creating more training for the community. Being a long time customer I know that old customers generally get a little better pricing than new customer
    is that the same for this training?

    As an early-bird customer I had time to digest the first version. This new full and complete version fills in the gaps and surpasses my expectations. It covers all the information you wish you knew before doing things on a hunch. It informs you about all those vague settings you think you knew, and gives you a thorough understanding of the new system: GI, specifically interpolated GI, animated GI, proper sampling workflow, how to use the filter radius, render tile size, understanding buffers, proper volumetrics, color space***, even how to struggle with the word Lanczos Sinc and just how the whole story fits together with lighting and shading .... You'll be rendering like a boss.

    Great job and must have training.

    Yeah... turns out it's Hungarian...

    and pronounced Lan Sosh (which means "chained"... Hungarian peeps have odd names)

    Is there a 'buy all' bundle deal? I think I want to buy them all.

    Also, if I were to buy all topics, what is relevant for LW2018? Are some series for older versions? Sorry, I'm a newcomer to this Rebel Hill stuff but it all looks good.

    RH Rigging, RH Animation are still relevant, because not much has changed with animation & rigging workflows in Lightwave since their release and/or updates.
    RH Nodal might have a few changes, because of the new renderer, but those differences would be covered by new LSR videos.

    RHiggit 2 is worth the money spent, if you do even a fair amount of rigging. It does have some (very minor) quirks, but nothing that's a show stopper, or even a deal breaker.

    I think Craig is talking about an update to RHiggit, so maybe it will sort out any issues with 2018.

    If you have a good rig, such as a 64 threaded machine, the video isn't that far from the truth. . However, I looked at it at 0.25x speed and that looks pretty close to what my machine in the sig does for scenes like that.

    The RH website is deceptively thin on the front end, but a veritable Aladdin's Cave if one wanders a little and it finally dawns what is there...the LW equivalent of the shop from Mr Benn.
