G'day from Australia fellow LWavers!

I have some models that have hundreds of vertex maps. ( UV & Normal Maps )
In the vertex panel I cannot multi-select & delete these.
Doing this one at a time with right click is wasting my time.

After googling.. I found an old forum with a ( now broken ) link : http://www.dstorm.co.jp/dslib/delmap/del_map.zip

Is there any other way or plugin? Or does anyone have a working link for the above plugin?

Thanks in advance,

Remoc

You can export as *.obj. After import you will have one uv per object layer.

Yes this works, great idea.. thinking out of the box.

However saving to OBJ and reloading, my polys were flipped in all kinds over directions. I will need to manually flip them to correct. ( still time consuming )

In vertex maps you can select many uv maps with shift key and delete them.

I searched further and found the solution to bulk vertex maps deleting

https://www.lightwave3d.com/assets/plugins/entry/delete-map/

------- Tested and working ------

But it doesn't have the option to bulk delete the Vertex Normal maps.
Oh well 1000 maps maps to delete is better the 2000.
I better get clicking.
