I've added a few plugins sucessfully to lwext.cfg ie hd_instance, but some I just can't seem to find what plugin they came out of, like BRDF, and consequently how to add it to the plugin list.
Is there a way to generate a new lwext from your current Lightwave (my lwext file is from 6.5 I think) or get the plugin info some other way?

You mean you're hand editing the LWEXT3.cfg file?

Why not use the 'Edit Plugins' panel within LightWave?

Press 'Alt F11' to call it up.

But that doesn't seem to edit any corresponding Lw_ext file, neither the one in configs, or the one in the sn_configs I created.

hi Eric,
'Edit Plugins' is the way to do. It edit the LWEXT3.cfg. maybe your need to recheck your path config.

Maybe realphabetize your additional menu can help to find plugins too. (SHM Alphabetize Additional)
