View Full Version : Package scene doesn't 'pack' DP web ies lights

02-18-2016, 04:55 AM
I've noticed that the Package Scene in layout doesn't export the ies lights used with DP Web: it's me or it works like this for you also?
I can be more organized of course, but exporting for a renderfarm can be difficult if you have a library where every light needs the right path... this has to be done manually.
Any suggestion?

Obviously they are not packed, because LW has no idea about them, and where they are..

Does it work if you use the normal and built-in IES lights?

Just tried this with the native Photometric Lights, and it still doesn't package IES files...
this is an oversight I think, send a bug report in WITH CONTENT (no matter how simple) and a list of instructions, and they'll fix it I'm sure!

If you can't be arsed, just say and I'll do it for you.

@sensei: ok but... suggestion? Maybe can be done with a script? Just to make my life easier :D

@lardbros: in my case, with native photometric lights, the Package Scene actually does work perfectly and it put the ies files in /lights

3rd party plugin (nor built-in classes) does not tell which resources on disk it's using to anyone.
Nor how to change their paths after copying them to new locations.

Well, I guess I'll do it manually

Put an ask in Requests, but a release box must be there

for sending scenes to people who have not got that Plug-in

to stop conflicts & a freeze in loading, so you want LightWave to

scan for Active Use of a Plug-in or ins & Advise in a box.

That should be doable along the road.
