Sorry if this has been covered; I did some searching first..

Will Lightwave respect an alias made to its Content>Objects folder?

I'm running out of room on my boot volume after installing OSX, FCP4 and Lightwave.. I can see running into serious trouble as the stills renders and animations start to pile up.

I've done what I'm talking about with iPhoto..make an alias of the iPhoto Library which points to another drive with more space..just don't know if Lightwave will respond correctly to this since it has been fussy about other things..

thanks!

The location of the content directory is irrelevant for Lightwave, but per-project you need to tell lightwave where the content directory is. I have content in directories nested in directories on volumes different from lightwave.

But in answer to your question, I don't know. It may or may not respect aliases that way.
