    Essential Lightwave 9 book- cd probs?

    Hey Guys, i bought the essential lightwave book by wordware, and when it comes to doing some of the video tutorials,some of the files wont play.. i've also found a few of the plugins which came with the cd which you need to do the tutorials dont work...

    is it just my cd or has anyone else had problems?

    Depending on the video, you might have better luck using VLC to play them back:

    Yes, there are some problems with the DVD. I informed the publisher already. You can read all about it here:

    starting with this post:

    wordware set up a webpage with all the replacement videos, here's the post:

    and here's the link:

    Steve and wordware were really on the ball about getting replacement videos to the community. They did a great job with the book and videos too! enjoy!

    ps. The plugins on the DVD are not universal binary, just fyi... some of them have been released now though. Check the UB plugins thread to see if any of them have been updated to UB versions. (some of the PICTRIX plugins are now UB).

    Also, because the PLG tools don't work on the UB version Steve set up a whole new set of videos that use Blender with Lightwave to do the same thing. These will help you get through some chapters of the book if you are on the UB version.
