View Full Version : Curve to Motion not working

Ok, this is driving me nuts.

I've created an open curve and attempted to export it as a .mot file to import into Layout.

I used to do this just fine in 5.6 and 8 eons ago with a plug-in, now Lightwave 11.03 appears to have this option built-in and it even talks about 'path to motion' in the manual, but all it says it it exports a motion path.

When I select the option, a file dialog comes up, I name the file 'filename'.mot and nothing happens.

I've tried selecting the curve, selecting the points, etc. but nothing seems to work.

It doesn't write a file or anything.

Any ideas? I'm going crazy spending a lot of time trying to figure this out.

Thanks,

Jim

Create curve by bezier in modeller
Export curve to motion
Create null in layout
Load motion file

That's just the thing, that's EXACTLY what I'm trying to do except that the 'export curve to motion' doesn't create a .mot file.
It doesn't create anything.

OK, this is odd, but maybe not. I restarted Modeler and now it works. Go figure.

Anyone know of a way to get a .mot file into Modeler like the old Prem mot2path plug-in?
