The LightWave 3D Group will be unveiling to the 3D community its very own LightWave Showcase the week of SIGGRAPH, August 12-14, 2014. It will feature stellar how-to LightWave tutorials from top artists, outstanding new interviews with studios and artists, and of course, the debut of our LightWave 2014 show reel! See the full schedule at the bottom of the page.

We also invite you to come get social with us—each day of the LightWave 3D Showcase, we will be giving away full versions of LightWave 11.6, ChronoSculpt, and NevronMotion software.

Simply post your 3D masterpieces—your best work—your proudest 3D achievements—to the LightWave 3D Facebook page*. From there, the LightWave 3D community will vote on their favorite images of the day (August 12-14). The top three artists with the highest number of LIKES each day will receive their choice of LightWave 11.6, ChronoSculpt or NevronMotion software. Invite your friends to join the page and vote for you, too! The more likes the better!

* See the image submission requirements at the bottom.

We are so pleased to announce that the all new LightWave 3D Magazine for 2014 will be released on Tuesday August 12 and available for viewing. The magazine is now interactive and completely digital, so you can easily view the stories and tutorials and even download the assets that accompany the tutorials. This new issue is packed with goodness – it has everything from how LightWave was used in Tim's Vermeer and the creation of Sharknado 2 to building your very own Sharknado tornado with LightWave and TurbulenceFD. It is loaded with incredible projects—from student works to using social media to show off your 3D skills, along with some stunning images from artists and some seriously great LightWave tutorials.


But we're not done yet! We are also announcing the new Official LightWave 3D Channel on Vimeo! Each day of the LightWave 3D Showcase, the videos will be posted and archived on the Official LightWave 3D Channels on both YouTube and Vimeo, as well as shared across our social media networks on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+, and Pinterest.
