Hi!
I have a problem with codec's in LW9.6. On my previous computer I had LW installed on Windows XP and there was no problem with codecs. Now, the same LW 9.6 (but 64bit's version) I have installed on Windows 7 64bit. I installed codecs ( from K-Lite pack 64bit) and.. nothing. There is nothing to choose when I'm trying make a movie, only Microsoft Video 1 and Microsoft RLE.

Probably, under Windows 7 LW must have exacly defined path to codec. Am I right?

LightWave can access any codecs accessible to Windows as long as they conform to the Direct Show standard. You can get XViD and use that. Of course, it should always be said that rendering direct to animations is not advised.

All right, so why I can't see any of them when I'm trying choose options of Animation? And I have them installed?

Because the KLite pack isn't DirectShow compatible? Try installing XViD directly from the XViD page.
