The NewTek LightWave 3D 11 Full Version Add 1 Seat Educational Edition is a second license offered at a considerable discount to elementary-school through higher-education teachers who already own a LightWave 3D 11 Full Version Educational Edition license. One purpose for an Add 1-Seat license is to set it up for a new student.
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 versions. 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). A full electronic manual is included for download and is also available at the press of the F1 key. LightWave is compatible with both Macs and PCs and this full version comes with installation discs, 3D glasses and a USB dongle that activates and stores the software license.
The Educational Edition is discounted for accredited elementary-school through higher-education students and teachers.
To use the Educational Edition, you'll be requested to provide proof of eligibility by emailing in a copy of your student or teacher ID (or other form of validation).
