3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Yes ! and No !, 9 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Essential Lightwave V9: The Fastest and Easiest Way to Master LightWave (Paperback)
Brought the book new on amazon after reading amazons 5 star rating etc.
The tutorial CD inclosed I thought came BLANK! If the inclosed DVD shows the tutorial video files one minute and not the next transfer the files to another DVD disk which worked for me.

As a beginner I needed a book to learn this powerful 3D software " Lightwave " version 9.3 and if you downloaded the trial version of Lightwave version 9.6 from Newtek there will be a difference to The books older version 9. Try making a line primitive etc. you soon understand what I mean and have to use your own tuition regarding. But this applies to most learning books when a software is updated.

The small wording in the diagrams are slightly hard to read in grey and white. The book starts from the basics to intermediate to advance which is great to drive you through to understand this 3D software, which has a lot of big films under its belt and one of the early gods of 3D software.

Lightwave has two different Layouts which users and beginners like myself will find confusing at first.
It will open up in " Layout view " which you cannot do much in. Its not like " Maya " and " 3D Studio Max " not to mention many others. You need to open up " Modeler Layout " to get started in making the basic of a line primitive to get things going.

This book is easy to follow and I would agree with comments regarding that " they would of purchase the book just for the videos clips alone.
