Pretty easy to tell if it’s legit. Did it come with a dongle? You have to transfer ownership too.

Carpe Lightwave…but Et tu legitit Brute???


#7

yup dongle, will find out about ownership transfer, had docs on install, but were corrupt??


#8

You should register the software or upgrading will be a problem…You don’t want to spend money on software and have the original owner have it registered to themselves…

Hey Coupon!

Welcome to the LightWave family!

If you are a LightWave newbie, DO NO RELY ON THE MANUALS…They are useless. I don’t care what anybody says!..They should just be used for reference. To learn LightWave I suggest this website. Everything I learned about LightWave I learned from here…

And or course check Newtek’s site too. William has done an excellent job putting these together but these tutorials are also link in the above site.

I started LW at 5.5 and the manuals were bad, atrocious in 6.0 somewhat better but no that much better in 7.0…When William tackles the manual overhaul, I believe we’ll have a better manual.

Tapes from desktop images are great too.

You can always ask me of course. I am passed the newbie stage but not yet an expert. If I don’t have the answer I have resources just a mouse click away. It’s faster sometimes to ask than it is hunt a manual that doesn’t explain a thing, and if it does, it leaves you scratching your heard going…huh?

good luck> Enjoy your LightWave Experience
