    Actually that's pretty cheap for a 3d application. You should take a look at the price for 3ds max.

    It's really not, as it goes. Lightwave's price has been lowered recently, while the feature list keeps getting longer and longer.

    My roomie bought Lightwave and the stuff he produces with it is pretty impressive. He did 3D work using LW in this co-lab we did:

    Programs that actually do things tend to be expensive. Even Dreamweaver (about $300 when I looked) made me rethink that hope, and that's after seeing prices for Finale (music composition, I think there was a $400 student price), FinalCut Pro, and Protools ($1000 is what I was told by someone who bought one, but it also comes with hardware to hook up microphones). Guess if you know how to use them, you're serious enough to spend that much.

    Indeed. I actually thought Cinema 4D was the cheapest of the big boys but £285 is a friggin' steal (assuming I read it correctly).
