LW 8.0 upgrade

I have decided to upgrade my LightWave-suite up to version 8.0. I already have four LW-boxes in my shelf next to me, but NewTek has a really nice deal (which ends on June 30th) that I can't skip. The price is half-off and the new upgrade comes with a bunch of CDs, a new big 8.0 box and a real thick manual (no PDF-stuff here). There's a lot of 3D softwares out there today and most of the creators are really lowering their prices now (are they desperate?) - which is good for us, the users.

Eventhough I've mostly used Maya since early spring 1998 LightWave will always have a special place in my heart. It's a superb software and a lot of pro tools for the money!

There's really no need for me to upgrade my Maya-suite to the latest one; version 4.5 with mental ray covers my needs at ILS and I use the latest version at work all day long anyway. Besides, upgrading it to version 6.5 would cost me something like 14000 swedish crowns and that's too much money.

On another note, it was great to see that I'm still featured in the official LightWave 3D gallery at Newtek.com. My image has had 3484 views at the moment and you can find this old thing here. The gallery is a lot bigger now, it has 1203 images but when NewTek added mine it was number 39. :)

I noticed that my link to the pic was wrong (they've changed their site again). I'll try to find it and put up a new link soon.
