| Does anyone know of a demo for LightWave? |
| I seem to remember I had to send off for one and it took ages to arrive, about six months in fact! The full product though is worth every penny.|
| Is it easier to use than Maya or 3D Studio Max? |
| Nope, it's just different. |
| I`d say so, yes. I find it extremely intuitive personally and always have since I first used it on my Amiga.|
| So... how is it different from the other two? |
| The interface is different, but the fundamental modelling techniques are the same. |
| Compared to MilkShape 3D (thats what I use), is the texturing system more advanced and complicated? |

Slightly, like Ferrari and Punto.

Maya is best for animation and NURBS stuff I think, MAX is good for everything but bloated. Lightwave has good modeler but the animation tools suck. Also Lightwave has separate "modeler" and "layout" compared the usual "all in one".
If I were you I'd check XSI - cheaper than Lightwave and overall even better than MAX IMO.
