I am trying to save my model/object and I am getting this message “Discovery Edition allows only 400 points in any layer”. What is this about? I am fully registered, running 7.5. My dongle is in. I cannot save my model I have been working on all day please help.

Did you put the dongle in after you started LightWave? Once it's running in "Discovery" mode you have to quit and re-start. Split the object into layers (with each layer having no more than 400 points) and you should be able to save it out...

yeah I think I did. But how do I split my object. And further more how would I put it back together?

Select a whole pile of polys, making sure that their included points total less than 400.


Now hit the x key.
Select a blank layer.
Hit the v key.
Repeat until you've got them all split up.

Then save.
Then breathe.
