Tutorials will be uploaded periodically. To set the ball rolling, the first one's taken from the WaveGuide© Manual. I'll do my best to incorporate the tutorials I upload into the manual itself. At the moment, WaveGuide contains sixteen Tutorials covering the basic to more complex functions of LightWave3D. If you have an interesting problem, or you've figured a cool way of doing something, let me know and if it's of general interest, I'll put it on the site.
