5.0 out of 5 stars Should Be Bundled With the Lightwave CD 24 July 2004
By Jan Letoha - Published on
Without wasting time here...if you're a Lightwaver, you should get this book. Put the bills on hold, if necessary, and eat cereal for a week. :-) As a beginning - intermediate Lightwave user/student, I've bought and read most of the new Lightwave books, and this one is the most valuable, by far. Having this book lying beside your computer is like having 30+ Lightwave gurus at your elbow, whispering their secrets in your ear as you model, texture, and render. There's nothing out there like it...well, Killer Tips maybe but 1001 T & T has tons more information. If ever a book deserves a 5 star rating, this is it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tips & Tricks and so much more 13 July 2004
By mokba - Published on
This volume contains the insider perspective on how to make Lightwave work for you. While the title makes it sound like a bunch of sound bytes it couldn't be further off. Each tip (and trick) places itself within the production environment and shows you how to get not just from A to B but also further down the road. You can read this book straight through or jump around by topic. The biggest pay off for me is the exposure to topics I have yet to approach in Lightwave. The writing presents an easy going attitude that encourages the reader to explore the book and the software. This volume is not a primer for Lightwave but is suitable for users of all levels. Buy this book and keep it next to you, it is worth the price and more!

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic but a bit redundant 28 July 2005
By Barry K. Moritz - Published on
The blurbs about this book are right. There are no other places I have found for the kind and quality of information contained in this book... at least for a non-super expert in Lightwave 3D.

Yet at the same time, there is much redundancy within the book itself (several tips are essentially identical) and with the reference manual provided by NewTek.

So there are really quite a few less than 1001 super neat and fantabulous tips and tricks here, but there are plenty enough to make the purchase a valuable addition to your reference library for LW8.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Rosetta stone for LW 13 July 2004
By Tim Dunn - Published on
The de facto, absolute must own Lightwave book. Whether your an industry Lightwave professional or brand new to Lightwave this book can not disappoint you. Its not just that the material covers all areas of Lightwave but it provides new takes on old as well as new techniques, ideas and theories. If you own every Lightwave book written or have never bought one, do yourself a favor and buy this one and then clear a spot next to your computer to keep because you will always want it within fingers reach.
