I'm working on a tutorial in "Inside Lightwave 7" Chapter 15. I'm animating landing gear. Everything works just fine untill I set up Cycler for the gears. I've followed everything to a tea. And yet when I try to move the gears with the control null nothing happens. Any suggestions to help me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Don

OK. I found out that it has to do something with Cycler. The start and end frames default are 0 and -1. The -1 is suppose to let the plug-in run through the entire animation. But I found that I have to set a frame number to get cycler to work. Does anyone know why it's not working with the ending frame set at -1?

Later. Don

What is that all about? I had the same problem and that was the first corrective idea that popped to mind. Your second message confirmed it and, yes, indeed, that fixed it.

So, have we a real explanation as to why Cycler can't use -1 as the ending frame, even though it's the default setting?

Thank you,
