LightWave 3D v11 Courseware from Class on Demand is unlike any other learning video out there. Rather than bore and confuse you with lengthy explanations of theories and practices, this training shows you how to use LightWave 11 - quickly and easily.

You'll understand how to navigate the interface, work with Modeler, and layout start to finish. You'll see how easy it is to setup 3D animated scenes while incorporating new features such as Bullet Dynamics, Instancing, Flocking, Fracture, and more.

New and Intermediate users of LightWave 3D will benefit from this course. There will be a section for those brand new to 3D and LW and another section for those looking to learn just the new features. Each feature set will be presented with a project that you will do. There's no better way to learn software.
