Thread: Buy 1 get 2 free sale!

  1. #1

    Buy 1 get 2 free sale!

    I've put out a lot of Lightwave learning and software products over the years, and for this month I wanted to try something a little different just as a... experiment if you will.



    Because this kind of promotion isn't easily automatable in the current L3D store system, I will be processing all orders manually. After purchase, e-mail me at [email protected] and tell me which 3 products (including plugins) that you would like for me to send.

    Store link

    Complete list of my products

    If anyone has any questions, let me know! Thank you all so much for your support! Feel free to let others know of this sale, this is the only place I will be posting this sale.

    Thatīs a good deal, especially your vids is the ones that interests me most on the Liberty3D site, but....as I mentioned before, I will not invest in either plugins or tutorials commercially until the next Lightwave release.
    Would be great if you could keep this offer til the next Lightwave release is finished, then again..I understand if you wonīt.
    My take on it.

    Ryan, what happens if a guy buys the cheapest one, then asks for two most expensive ones free, or is that the nature of the (very generous) promo ?

    It's a flat price of $64.95 for 3 products.

    Many of you have praised ryan's things very much. I don't think that Lightwave will change so much with 2020 that most of it would be unusable.
    I'm looking forward to the Bullet Dynamics, the Unreal bridge, and the RR Tools. Lots of stuff to learn. :-)

    Hi Kievi,

    That statement is a bit of Pre asumptions of a not (for me relevant) situation,that Lightwave would be unusable, I am sure it will not be that..thatīs not the point, the question is how much it is Evolving..which is quite different, if it doesnīt maintain a certain standard from my point of view..I will leave it resting for some years til it does, and will fokus on other tools during that time.
    So the next release is going to be quite important, and I do not want to invest in training materials, or do my own training materials knowing that I do not see Lightwave kick off enough, even though I still can use Lightwave 2019 for all that, my focus will in such case be on something else.

    Looking forward to bullet dynamics, unreal bridge, rr tools?
    you mean getting the tutorials?...theresīs nothing otherwise revealing something new on that front for Lightwave 2020

    If Lightwave doesn't fulfill a user's workflow requirements, they should find a software that does. Simple as that. It makes no sense to wait for a software to become something that it is not because that could potentially be a very long wait, and the priorities of the developers may not always align with how a user works. This is not a problem exclusive to Lightwave... if I waited for Houdini to provide dedicated workspaces for specific tasks, i'd be in for a long wait because that's not what the software is about. If I waited for Blender to revise its licensing to allow me to sell software without releasing my source code for free, well, it probably won't happen... you just can't wait for things to change in this industry. Lightwave is my core 3d application and the very heart my entire 3d production pipeline. That probably won't change any time soon because I do not simply use a software because it is more popular, I use a given software because it actually serves a practical, meaningful purpose in my workflow.

    After all these years, even though I've used practically everything out there, I still find Lightwave to be the very best solution for my production needs in the majority of cases.

    Now, to be absolutely fair, being a tool developer *REALLY* helps, because if there is a nitpick I have about a workflow, 9 times out of 10 I can fix it or replace a native tool with one that I wrote myself. This is a benefit that I can take with me to ANY software that I use. I would recommend that anyone who does 3d work learn python since its so easy to encounter difficult or time consuming production problems in this business. You can't always expect someone else to take care of the "niche" stuff that is hard for developers to incorporate into a "default" workflow.

    Hi Prometheus,
    My posting was also not really serious.
    Of course, I understand that your requirements for lightwave are completely different than for a hobby user like me.

    And I had to strike at the offer. And yes, I bought the RR Tools, the tutorial for the Unreal Bridge, and that for the Bullet dynamics.

    But...if my wife even noticed that I have more tutorials than it shoes, I'm out of luck. :-)

    best regards

    kievi

    and i hope, you know, iīm apologize for my bad english.

    Not cool holding an independent developer hostage for reasons outside their control. Pay the sixty bucks or not.

    I assume You aimed that to my post.

    Youré wrong..no one is holding the presume Ryan Roy as a hostage, he does whatever he pleases within his business model, if he understands the situation and sees the problem and recognize it, and are willing to extend his offer..if he can or not, that is within his power to do so without any other person putting him in a hostage situation.

    Depending on how it all falls out, he may also of course choose to have a limited time offering, then after that is evaluated and if the release of Lightwave doesnīt occour until later, he could then simply get back with another campaign at that time when all is so much clearer.

    No need to inflate a wish of mine to be negative for him or me, it was nothing more than an advice to let him understand a perspective from one users, he can do and think whatever he wantīs with that.

    Youre wrong..

    Right now Currently I am a hobby user as you, though I used it commercially before, that doesnīt mean we have the same uses for it even though we are both hobby users.

    Donīt agree with you on your first paragraphs ..If you are answering it from the perspective of what I mentioned that is, itīs not about becoing what itīs not..that is to inflate it too much in my opinion, not how I see it, there are some directions implementations I would like to see..and for the record..I just stated what you mentioned, I will move along when I do not see it fullfilling enough of what I need.

    So basicly..I am not arguing against your suggestions to find a software that does fill the requirements, Thatīs what I said as well.
    As we can assume a bit, the lightwave team notified that they are sort of finishing up with the next release, Of course you can do whatever you want with your business model and doesnīt really have to explain yourself around that...and as mentioned, you can always end the offering anytime soon..and perhaps go at it later ..if you choose to do so in yet another campaign.

    I am not in hurry for the training material, I am more concerned about what implementations and what direction I see Lightwave develop in, just because there is a long wait development cycle and such, doesnīt mean I necessarely need to switch to another software either.

    Sorry.
    I said that with the greatest respect. If I read your name here, I know that a contribution follows with a lot of specialist knowledge.

    So I thought you used it for work.
    but i take my hat off knowing what is going on here in the forum.
