I've seen books available but none for starting level-lightwave. just advanced level. I've seen no tutorials of where to start either.

Can anyone tell me where i can learn to start lightwave with either books or tutorials *beginner ones!*

thanks.

digitalshaman , we have a great book for starting LW'ers...

Essential LightWave. NewTek thought it was so good they pulled parts of the book and made it the new manual for 7.5 and we are going to update it to be the manual in 8.

You can also get it for 37% off here (http://www.wordware.com/lightwave/) if you use this coupon code :beer:

Other options are online courses like THIS (http://www.3dtrainingonline.com/introtolightwave.htm) . It follows a logical process and covers pretty much everything you need to know to get you going and then some. :)
