I used DP_Infinite _Light in 10.0 and admit I was late upgrading to LW2015.

I've installed the plugin from the DP site but when opening an older scene that used DP_Infinite_Light I'm getting the attached message.

My questions are:

1. Does LW 2015 now have soft shadows and I no longer need DP_Infinite_Light?

2. If not does anyone know how to resolve this warning so I can use a previous (LW10) file with the DP_Infinite_Light plugin?

Thanks,
DI

use lightwave native dome lights instead meanwhile you sort that problem out, set the angle to 0,52.
or use dp sunlight.

Thanks, exactly what I'm was doing - just curious if there has been an upgrade to lighting with the more recent versions.

I use DP infinite lights all the time. Not sure what is going on here.

Hm, weird. I see the DP_Kit plugin in my plug ins folder but I see nothing that says DP_Infinite_Light. I assume the plugin "is" everything.

Thanks

Easy fix then! The lights are a separate plugin: http://dpont.pagesperso-orange.fr/plugins/lights/Additional_Lights.html

Download the other kits from here too:
