I am running 9.61 on a 64 machine. In Layout I keep getting muultiple duplicate layers of existing layers, these layers contain nothing but a single null - does anybody know what is going on here?

Also I use FPrime and that neat trick where you click on part of a render preview and it selects the surface style in LW surface editor no longer works, has anybody experienced anything similar and is there a fix??

Lots of issues today but hopefully team discussion can help me fix my troubles



Thanks

Neil

Redirected config folder - I dont understand, that sounds techy.
Could you explain a little more Sensai

You should not run Modeler and Layout using their normal icons, but through special made short-cuts where are parameters like this:

"C:\Program Files\NewTek\LightWave 3D 9\Programs\modeler.exe" -c"C:\Documents and Settings\Sensei-Athlon6000\LightWave Configs\v9.6"

and similar for Layout.

Since v10.0 it's no longer needed, but earlier is must have, to have stable LW.

I just guess so, your config files were trashed. It's often when running multiple <LW v10.0 on single machine.
