Here is a little overview which will introduce you to the new instancing tools in Lightwave 11. Great tools for a variety of scenes and a really good set of tools for mograph work.
This intro doesn't do anything flash but it does set out a few things so you can get started easily.
If you follow my videos because you are a Cinema 4D user then you can grab a demo of Lightwave from http://www.newtek.com and give it a try. I like both apps equally, so see what you think.
