hello, this is my first post or even my first visit to this forum. My friend sold his computer but before doing so he gave me dibs on the programs,because he knows i draw and paint by hand and this might be a nice change of pace .Any how i been searching the net for places to learn lightwave and macromedia products,and well i just started trying to model a head today and i got some polys for a head and shoulders but i think i need a good description of the tools in lightwave before i get ahead of myself. if anyone could guide me to a place to a description of tools or a place where you begin learning i would be greatly appreciatiative.

First thing I would do is upgrade to 7.5d from 7.0. Then grab lots of the free video tutorials. Away you go.

You can download updates either from http://www.newtek.com if you're US customer or http://www.newtek-europe.com if you're European. The updates themselves are quite simple to install after obtaining them, just doubleclick the installer. And remember, you only need the latest update so you don't have to go 7.0 -> 7.0b -> 7.5 -> 7.5b -> 7.5d but you can immediatly go from 7.0 -> 7.5d.

LW7 and LW[8] aren't the same thing, 8 is of course a newer version than 7.

every update is almost the full program, so just get the latest version and install it. Big difference from 7 to 7.5d, you are missing a lot.
