I'm currently using Lightwave 8.5, and I needed to convert some models and animation into DirectX, so I thought I'd try installing DStorm's plugin. Now, it seems to have installed all right in Modeler, and converts models just fine. The problem I'm having is that the plugin isn't showing up in the plugin menu in Layout, or in any other menu. Edit Plugins shows that it has been installed as a "Layout Command". Am I missing something really obvious?

Now that you added the plug-ins. Go to edit, edit menu layout, then click search. Type in "direct x". This should find the direct x plugins installed. Now all you need to do is drag it over under file, export to make it a menu button.

Let me know if this helped.

That got it running. Still trying to get it to save animation. Thanks for the help!

OK, the animation exports when I set it to DirectX 7 rather than DirectX8.
