View Full Version : What does this mean?

No plug-in of type AnimLoaderHandler found with name.mov/faxspin.avi.

Is it looking for this file?

Thanks for the help!

looks like the file has been saved linking to an AVI file for some form of texture I'm guessing, don't think you get that if it is just in the "save" area of a scene. More likely it's some form of 3rd party shader.

Is it from the content, or from a scene/object you've been sent to work on?

Hey Colkai. Actually both. I've been sent a file to work on. I save the motion paths from my match moving software 'SynthEyes but, when I try to load the file up in lightwave i get this message. I also get this message from the content CD on some scenes.

Is the a way to find these missing shaders or whatever they may be?

Just a thought, given the '.mov' - have you made sure the quicktime loaders are installed.
I'd go into edit plugins, go to the input/output plugins folder and re-add them all.

If that doesn't work, if you could point me in the direction of a specific scene/object in the content area (i'm on LW8 btw) then I can have a look myself.

Ok. I'll try that and let you know what happens by tomorrow!
Thanks for all your help Colkai.
