I found out about unconverted LWAs just messing around.
I guess I'm not looking for anything specific, just something to help me get the basics without wasting a lot time through trial & error.
I have a few of Don Checke's tutorials that I haven't looked at for awhile. When I went through them I wasn't paying attention to the rendering parts. Forgot all about them! Time to revisit those.
Henry Hubich's looks like it might be helpful too.
Thanks for pointing me in that direction.
