Right now, NewTek is offering LightWave 7 for $995. Do you think this will help make LightWave more popular than ever, or is this a bad marketing move that could hurt LightWave's reputation as a professional production tool?

Or how does that make you feel if you just happened to pay $2,495 for LightWave 7?

Don't they always do some kind of holiday special? I think it can only help Newtek. It'll bring many more users to Lightwave. I don't see how it'll hurt Lightwave's reputation, though. It's still great for all the reasons it's great--at any price.

Here's how this offer is being run. If, by December 31st, you schedule a demo of the VideoToaster 2 at your local authorized dealer during January, then you can order a copy of LW7 for $995. This offer only applies in the U.S. It is not a general offer that allows anyone to just buy a copy of LW7 from Newtek between now and the 31st of December.

There are other legitimate methods to purchase LW7 for substantially less than the $2,495 sticker price.
