Default 4.5 Personal Learning Edition + DVD

I just got mine in the mail today. The DVD is great for people who need a raw introduction. Being somewhat familiar with Lightwave 3d, I am able to navigate roughly through the interface already. I have the earlier version of the PLE so I'll find out what's new with this one.

At $19.99, it's a great bargain. You get the Beginner's Guide, the DVD to accompany it and the PLE version 4.5...

Hey, it's almost like Christmas!

Agreed...the PLE and DVD combo is a great starting point for beginners.....and it's not expensive so anybody can go out and buy it to learn

There is not.

Also, I checked AW site and it states that fluid effects is not part of the PLE 4.5

bummer...
