LW has one of the largest learning resouces out there. One of the many reasons I chose it. Check out all the really good books on Amazon.com too

In addtion to what has already been mentioned:

www.3dgarage.com (http://www.3dgarage.com) and anything else by Dan Ablan

Thanx for the links guys!

Lightwave has more free learning resources then you could possible imagine. More then you could go thru in a years time.

Dive in and you'll be set!

Hi all, i really want to see project base trainings, i know Desktop Images has some good tutorial and i got it, there isn't much more tuts about LW, it's not so good, I don't know lw too much so when i try to do something, i have lot of problem and i can't solve that, there isn't any tutorial about LW in Gnomon and Gnomonology (only one for organic modeling).. So i think i need to learn 3d very well and than i can understand lw ..

If you want project-based training then you need to check out Dan Ablan's site www.3dgarage.com (http://www.3dgarage.com). He has a short two hour "tune-up" course as well as a full on "Broadcast" course, in addtion to his LW 9 courseware.

What kind of project-based courses are you looking for?
