View Full Version : Auto key doesnt auto key

I'm not a newbie but iv'e suddenly discovered that the auto key create button in my fresh install of lightwave (7.5b) no longer works. Also i have to turn on image viewer every time i boot lightwave......Has this ever happened to anyone else. Im running lw on a win 200 intel machine and ive found the config files but i cant find where to save these settings..ps i dont think auto key create not working has anything to do with the config anyway.

Well, I'm not going to be much help but I thought I'd let you know that auto keying doesen't work on my notebook. I don't lightwave on my notebook very often though so it hasn't really been an issue, but I couldn't figure it out when I breifly looked into it.

Is it possible that the AutoKey is turned off in the General Options, because I think you can have the AutoKey button pressed but not turned on in the Options panel.

Ahhh, gjjackson's suggestion was the solution for mine. It's a good bet it is for yours too.

yep nice one. What i did in the end is go to the config files in my profiles (lw3.cfg) and edited auto key and auto key create from 0 to 1, but i guess that was the same as the general options tab. Anyway....auto key create now works.....just the matter of being a good animator to attend to now, he he.

Thanks guys!
