Wow! To be honest I haven't touched LW all that much lately except to install the latest update. Perhaps it's time to get back into the swing of things and these tutorials will come in handy. Cheers! :thumbsup:

Just had to post to say thank you. I recently purchased LW to use with Maya as a renderer and LW, while it's taken some time to get used to, has really saved my arse. These tutorials have been more than helpful. With lessons like these it won't be difficult at all to see the value in keeping my license of LW up to date.

Thank you Newtek team. From what I can tell there are a lot of happy NewTek user who love your Tutorials. Since I posted the news in my web site as well I got quiet some attention on NewTek news. (http://www.strongmocha.com/2008/01/22/newtek-released-more-then-16-hours-of-free-lightwave-training/)

Would be great if a download button could be added to the interactive list for all of us on XP64 that can't view quicktime movies in a browser...or that want to save the movies anyway.

I'll look into that. I have XP64 so I know what you mean.

Unfortunately I'm finding that the "link" button doesn't work. I just get a "page could not be displayed" error. :(

Hmm... and when I try to "launch" a video, After waiting some minutes for the download from Newtek's ftp to complete, I just get a Quicktime logo with a question mark on it. I just upgraded Quicktime earlier today...

You helped keep the thread active though, so it wasn't a total loss. :)

I still can't see any of the videos... "launch" brings up a Quicktime logo with a question mark in it and "link" brings up a "page cannot be displayed" error...


Anyone have any ideas? Am I the only one this is happening to?
