Where are the New file formats?

Ripped from the Feature list on Lightwave3d.com site it says.


New File Formats

RIG new format for importing and exporting character rigs
OpenEXR



I'm itching to use OpenEXR for compositing but can't seem to find it in lightwave 8 to save in that format.

Also what is this .RIG file and what MOCAP uses it?

Try a search of the threads, I've seen this discussed before. I think from memory that it got left out. Maybe someone else can confirm.

There are two buttons in the the setup tab of layout labeled import rig and export rig. Is that what you are after?

Cheers,

Install the plugin... you're ready to go... load and save! ;)

Note: there is an "Image Filter" OpenEXR_Settings... use it to set EXR file saving options!

Note:
The OpenEXR_Settings's "Image Filter" is used only to setup the format of EXR file and not to save it.

Save using Render Options -> Output Files as always.
