NewTek Releases LightWave 3D Discovery Edition

New version gives students a chance to learn LightWave 7.5 for free By Dave Nagel
NewTek has released LightWave 3D Discovery Edition, a special version of the company's flagship 3D modeling and animation suite. The new version includes most of the features of the full LightWave 7.5 commercial version and is available free of charge. It supports Mac OS 9, Mac OS X and Windows.

According to NewTek, the Discovery Edition is designed to let new users and students evaluate the capabilities of LightWave, and it includes "extensive tutorial support" in the form of Flash walkthroughs. The tutorials cover modeling and animation.


The CD includes the complete manual in PDF format, as well as the scenes, models, images and textures from the retail version.

The software itself is a fully functioning version of LightWave, but objects can only be saved with up to 400 points, and renders include a subtle watermark. It supports Windows and Mac, including Mac OS X. For more information or to request a free CD, visit http://www.newtek.com/discovery.html.
