View Full Version : FBX Export Failing to Write in 2015... FIXED!

My LightWave Modeller & Layout 2015 stopped writing FBX files completely, and has been like that for YEARS! I tried all versions... nothing!

I found, after a little nudge from LightWave support, that there was a registry entry for Valkyrie, which controls all of LightWave's exporting options... I decided to delete all the registry keys inside and now FBX export works perfectly. Something must have got corrupt in the registry over the years, but now it's all good!

The registry key can be found under:
HKEY_CURRENT _USER/Software/NewTek/Valkyrie/

If you're not confident messing with the registry, probably best to leave it alone, or back it up before you go fiddling/deleting!

Hope this helps!

I just know there have been others like me, where FBX stopped working completely in both Modeller and Layout... and wanted to make sure it was logged here :D
Mine's been like it for a few years now, and am so happy it's sorted!!!
