Getting Started with LightWave

New to Lightwave? Watch our introductory tutorials to familiarize yourself with the interface and shortcut keys, before moving onto creating simple cartoon sets and product renders with the step-by-step projects in this learning path. Containing a little bit of everything without taking too much time and effort to complete, it's the perfect place to start for the new LightWave artist, giving you a broad overview before moving on to the more specialized learning paths

View Learning Path

Beginner's Hard Surface Modeling

Get familiar with the many modeling tools available in LightWave and put them to practical use with these slow-paced projects, excellent for the relatively new LightWave modeler. Here we learn how to create architectural landmarks, interiors and some low detail vehicles, and when completing this learning path you will have the skills to build your own exterior and interior environments complete with props in LightWave.

Beginner's Lighting and Texturing

Go from lighting novice to become a well-rounded artist with the skills required to take on work in visualizations, one of the largest fields in the 3D industry. Here you'll learn to build the scenes and set up lighting and materials for a wide range of scenarios, thus allowing you to create complex product shots and highly realistic architectural visualizations, including the making of different types of cloth for all your needs in interior scenes.
