LightWave 3D Group Offers Softimage Artists Special Crossgrade Price for LightWave 11.6 Software


The LightWave 3D® Group, a division of NewTek, Inc., just recently announced that current Autodesk Softimage software users can move to a full seat of LightWave 11.6 software for the special cross-grade price of 495.USD.  The Softimage crossgrade offer is available and valid through 31 March 2014.

We invite all Softimage artists to join the rebels, the independents, the artists and studios that push their creativity to the limits each and every day with LightWave 3D software.” said Rob Powers, president, LightWave 3D Group.
