Hi all,
I thought Id do the right thing and begin learning the Node editor, so Im following the free RH Nodal tutorials at RH Tutorials (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1C4072533A16B807) but Im hampered by frequent crashes when I copy and paste nodes. Can anyone else confirm that this is an issue and if so, is there anything I can do about it?

Lightwave 11.6

Win 7 Professional
Service Pack 1
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2760QM CPU @ 2.40GHz
16.0 GB
64-bit Operating System
Pen Input Available.


ps. I think this may be related but when it does crash, my Skype plugin in Google also fails, whats up with that? :stumped:
Thanks

Do *not* use LW v11.6 until releasing fixes for this issue:

LW v11.6 is not finished, what was showed is pre-release, beta version.
It has incompatible large number of node utility global functions with the all previous version of LW.
Literally all 3rd party nodes which are using LWNodeInputFuncs, LWNodeOutputFuncs will crash sooner or later.
So any mine node will crash with it.
You need to use LW v11.5.1 in production and wait for official release.
