View Full Version : new commer to LW
01-10-2002, 11:10 AM
well.. my first thread.. and my first use of LW :D
I come from a 7 years heritage of working with 3Ds Max (since it was still running on Dos).. I knew all the resources, plugins, DB.. etc..
and now, I just gave up working with it and wanted to start working on a "decent" program.. :confused:
so I instaled the demo version of LW7, and bought the inside LW book, and been browsing like crazy for the past two weeks..
being new to this LW business.. I am completely unaware of any good net resources: Data base, forums, tuts.. etc.. and would appreciate any help from you people to put me on track..
i know that this is a bit too much to ask.. but i would have helped anyone that asked me the same question about max, and hope that you will dp the same to me.. :D
so bring them on.. give a desperate 3D refugee a bit of help..
thanx in advance

here we are, in the same boat.
i started with 3dstudio ver 1 and pregressed through to ver 4.
i would work right trough the night, spend lightyears building my scenes only to find myself with a razor in one hand ready to slit a wrist because of a crappy renderer.
I saw the results LW produced, and my mind was made up.
I defected and have not regretted it for one moment.
Get a third party book - Inside LW 7 by Dan Ablan will do wonders for your progress, the manual just does not do it for me.
Glad I am not alone.
Hey mabey we can start a support group for x-3dstudiomaxers :D
Just keep at it !!!
