LW 9.6

scene loaded no problem

test render no problem all textures rendered

had to edit one of the models

closed out LW

opened Modeler made the minor change to object shape nothing that would interfer with UV image maps

quit modeler

reopened scene

ran test render and objects render but no textures. ???

tried render objects only same thing

I have not changed any render option

now the scene is not rendering bitmap textures aaaarg this is frustrating

Radiosity and Ray Trace Shadows on

Textures are visible in both modeler and Lightwave view plains

Open new lightwave, import object with texture. Does it render the texture? If so, then Lightwave seems to be fine.

Make sure you aren't running out of RAM allowed for Lightwave, that can cause Image map issue often. Are you running 32bit or 64bit?

Do you have an example of what the renders look like when the textures don't render? Is everything black?

Try a load from scene, and load the broken scene into a new one, try again? Any luck?

After modifying textures in Layout, did you press Save Object?
You can use our free plugin SaveSceneAndAllObjects available on http://www.trueart.pl
Make short-cut key for it and press when needed. Much faster than manually going to File > Save > Save All Objects.. then confirming etc. and then going to File > Save > Save Scene..
Just one key press.

Saving scene, won't save textures, which are part of objects.
