When I render a scene using HardFX or Collision for example, ScreamerNet fails with the error:

Loading plug-in
Error: No plug-in of type DisplacementHandler found with name FX_Break.

If I remove the HardFX dynamics on the model, and save the scene, the files render OK with ScreamerNet.

The computer with LightWave installed renders it OK, and it uses the exact same ScreamerNet setup as all the other computers. I use Spider to administrate the rendering.

So it seems it is someting with the plugin-in file, but it has been corrected to use UNC network paths.

from the LWEXT8.cfg file:
{ Entry
Class "DisplacementHandler"
Name "FX_Break"
Module "\\\\Morten\\LightWave\\Plugins\\Effect\\Hardfx.p"
InfoTag 409 "HardFX"
InfoTag 10409 "HardFX"
}

Are there any other places that needs fixing?
basic File I/O are working, and saving to the correct place.

The C:\Program Files\LightWave [8] directory is shared as
\\Morten\LightWave\

The settings from Spider is attached as a screen dump

Try changing the config file from
\\Morten\ScreamerNet\LW8.cfg
to just
\\Morten\ScreamerNet\
or
\\Morten\ScreamerNet

I think Lightwave from 7.x onwards expects the path to the config file only, not the actual file itself.

...works over here (I haven't tried it with PFX, but with other plugins) :)

Cheers,

Next time, wait for at least 24 hours for a reply in the forum ;)

Good to see it working now!

Damn, this might be the reason for some problems iŽve had recently trying to render objects textured with Simbiont, and this failing to appear on the render. I was using LWSCN and the config was ok, so i was lost on this.

IŽll check it, thanks for the heads up.

cheers
