Wait or Wave?

A potential customer called us today and asked should they wait for a new version of Aladdin 4D for Windows or should they buy LightWave 3D? We told them they should most definitely buy LightWave 3D ASAP. Never plan projects on unreleased software when you have an immediate need. LightWave 3D 9.3 represents years and years of refinements and upgrades. It does things Aladdin 4D can't even dream of since it has gone so long without an upgrade. LightWave 3D has many many features not present in Aladdin 4D since they are very different products. LW 3D is aimed at high-end users needing cutting edge features. People use LightWave 3D in their daily jobs doing feature film, video game graphics/animations & print production. Aladdin 4D is aimed at beginners and hobbyists. Also, we are not focused on the Windows version of Aladdin 4D, in fact it will be the last port that is completed. Please support NewTek if your looking for a professional high-end 3D animation package. It will be one of the most exciting pieces of software you'll ever buy.

Lightwave is actually very powerful and the learning curve is not too bad. It is very intuitive and robust. I have been using LW since version 4. I would not use any other program it is great for 3D compositing, animation and effects. The render engine is far superior to Maya's renderer and Max's renderer too.

We could help anyone who needs some animation work anytime.

I agree though dont wait on some software that is not out yet!
