    Does this mean Newtek is shipping 8 to the masses in its present state?

    The e-mail doesn't mention anything about an update to [8] so I'm not sure, but here's hoping that there is.

    Get ready for a work out with the manual....it's larger then my yellow pages......the 7.5 manual is tiny in comparison :P

    Good!!! I read through the 7.5 manual and while it was a ton of info, there was alot of things not covered well. I am really looking forward to it.

    So here it goes get to the registration page so I can down load the manual and guess what, yes of course I cannot down load it because Newtek US has not got my email in fact after many attempts it seems I don't exsist on there records at all

    So I cannot download a manual for a product I have bought on the day of it's offical release bloooooody great

    2 Questions

    1) With Newtek only having 2 offices on this planet of ours is there any chance EVER of one passing information to the other?

    2) Will Newtek Europe allow me to download the PDF

    ALSO your marketing REALLY needs to get itself SORTED!

    No sign on CGNetworks, CG Focus, CG Channel,VFXpro FLAY!!!!!!!!
    my god with marketing like that who needs competition.

    All I can say it's a good job I'm not in charge of marketing at Newtek because the *[email protected]% would really be hitting the fan this morning as far as Europe is concerned this morning no one has even heard of Lightwave 8. Where are the flash banners the sample pictures of work etc.......etc........etc press releases. The only people who Know about this product is those of us who have got it already carry on like that I cannot see how 8 will ever make 9

    very poor guys/girls

    KICK A**! I am so freakin' pumped I can't believe it! I have been saving for months and ordered my full package including DFX+ on my last pay check last Thursday. UPS tracking says it will be here the day after tomorrow. F***, YEAH! Nice site update, too! I'm suddenly a high-5 n' white guy!

    Well I certainly agree on a lot of your points Andy. The email sent from NewTek regarding 8's shipment indicated a bunch of upcoming press appearances - which will hopefully address the marketing issues, but I do think the site needs to reflect a more "marketable" approach. In fact, I was on the NewTek Europe site earlier and commented to myself "isn't it odd that the site for NewTek Europe seems more impressive than the main NewTek site". I'm not trying to be nasty to the NewTek web/marketing guys - I just want to see the product sell!!!!

    It would appear that European Users cannot log in to get the download for the manual since the site will not accept my serial no for my Lightwave Duo upgrade.

    Actually guys I took a whole month for me to get my copy of LW 8.

    Please stop treating European users as 2nd Class citizens
    Don't sweat the small stuff.
    PS...
    It's all small stuff

    ...unless its Lightwave
