Thanks Proton. Sorry about the JPG image quality folks. Best I could do while squeaking under the 50K size limit for attachments :)

I forgot to mention reason for selling. I got the Video Toaster Animators Special during Siggraph, so I'm selling off my extra licenses.

Just so that we're not loosing a LightWaver!!

This is a really really good deal guys -- if I had the means, or the necessity -- I'd be all over this one!!

I know Michael L. He's reliable and will deliver the goods. This is an excellent chance for someone to get into LW.

not that i'm trying to get on your ass or anything, but the software versions are kinda old. but nevertheless its a great deal if you wanna get into lw and the place where you work @ doesnt require you to have newer versions of the software. i think someone will go for this one.:wip:

Keep in mind though PotatoHead, while it's not Lightwave version 7.5 that I'm selling, it only costs 395 dollars U.S. to upgrade from version 6 to 7.5

1050 + 395 = 1445

So we then have

Lightwave 7.5
Aura 2.5
Project Messiah 1.57
For a total of 1445

As the buyer will be recieving the commercial licenses, they can upgrade as they wish.

who ever buys the old version of LW...I'll see what I can do about a good price for the promises...but maybe I can pull some strings...

09 September 2002, 02:52 AM
Still, a real sweet deal.

So much NewTek gear for one price.

Not getting many bites to my email address. Anyone have any good suggestions on where else I can post this ?

I've tried the Yahoo Groups, but the moderator chucked my posting off of one of them...
Also posted on the buy/sell listing....

I've lowered the price, and started a new thread so I can let folks know the price has dropped. Link below...

Since William teased the potential buyer with his post, i think people are waiting to see if William can come through

If he does, it will sell fast

You probable should hold off auctioning it till William has a definite answer

09 September 2002, 10:47 AM
MichaelJL: that's why i said that the deal was good, cause $1,050 is a really good price.

Michael JL

Well, hopefully William will be able to come up with a special upgrade price. Secondly, dropping the price a bit should excelerate things along nicely....

09 September 2002, 02:20 PM
Michael...send me an email next wednesday and I will tell you hat I can do.....I will be out of the office Monday and Tuesday....

Sent an email off to Proton about possible special upgrade price for the buyer (see previous)

I''ll post as soon as I have additional information confirmed...

09 September 2002, 10:03 PM
I'm working with the team to see what I can promises....

09 September 2002, 10:42 PM
Understand completely... thanks again

09 September 2002, 10:20 PM
Best I can do is offer the upgrade for $350....saves you a little bit of money.:thumbsup:

09 September 2002, 10:47 PM
I've posted a thread in the 3D Buzz forum about this, so that the guys there can read about it to ;)
This is a great offer, I'm sure someone will snap it up in no time!

09 September 2002, 05:37 AM
The upgrade... is it available for cross platform? I mean, what's involved in making this package run on my mac at home?

Michael JL

Thanks Proton, that's great !
In response Miguel, please keep in mind that Aura is not yet available for the macintosh, nor is Project Messiah to my knowledge.

Again a reminder, I'm closing the sale on Friday September 13th, at midnight PST (pacific standard time)

Thanks to everyone who has helped spread the word, and effectively I might add.

Please email me at if you have any questions.
