The NewTek LightWave 3D 11 Full Version Educational Edition is the complete version of LightWave considerably discounted for accredited elementary-school through higher-education students and teachers.
LightWave offers a user-oriented workflow for 3D motion graphics and visual effects creation. Featuring advanced modeling, animation and rendering tools, the program can be used for film, TV, architecture, design, information graphics and video games.
The LightWave mantra is "Technology Serves the Artist." LightWave tools and features are designed to let you focus on your art, your deadlines, and your budget; but on your art especially -- out-of-this-world 3D graphics: grass growing the length of a skyscraper, elephants stampeding into one another, spaceships roaming the universe, a car key tied into a knot, a shoot in Toronto looking like one along the canals of Amsterdam. Any idea you can dream up, you can create.
Hundreds of famous projects have been made, at least in part, with LightWave. Some of the most popular include Titanic, the Aviator, Avatar, Dr. Doolittle 3, Corky Romano, CSI, Dexter's Lab, the "Got Milk?" commercial, Aerosmith's "Fly Away" video, and X-Men: The Ravages of Apocalypse video game.
LightWave 3D 11 is the most advanced and feature-rich version of LightWave ever.
The interface has been enhanced over the previous version's. New features are abundant. In fact, only some features, like Bullet Dynamics, have been retained from the previous version (and even Bullet Dynamics has been upgraded). Your purchase provides you with an activation code for activating a free download of the program. LightWave is compatible with both Macs and PCs and you can download a version for either. You can also download a full electronic manual or access it at the press of the F1 key.
