View Full Version : Lightwave 10 and save format

01-28-2011, 09:00 AM
Hello,i'm a new entry in the forum:)
i've installed Lightwave 10 and it works very well but i've notice that i can't save or export in any image format.
If i make a render in the layout and save the image,simply he doesn't save any file in any format i try.
Same in the modeler,if i export in EPS i didn't get any file.
I've try to reload the plugins (I have only the default ones) but same problem.

(Actually to save the images i must make a screengrab of the final render..)

Any idea?

When you hit F9 to render your image and it appears in the Image Viewer, you need to choose the format from the menu there. If you are setting up a scene render with multiple frames launched with F10 you need to set up your outputs in the Render Globals panel before you hit F10.

Welcome by the way!

In the image viewer it doesn't work,even if i choose another format,lightwave doesn't save anything..
I'll try to setup the output in the render global,didn't thought about it..
i'll give a try
Thank you :)

Make sure you add the .[file extension]. So if you're choosing the .tga format you'd actually want to type in the name of what you want to save as and .tga.
