View Full Version : Save an image file to crash.

Anyone know why lightwave 8.0.1 crashes whenever try to save a test render?

I render out a single frame and then click on that rendered image to save it out as a jpg or png and it will crash lightwave every time. Any thoughts?

Okay, just tried not happening here, I can save as many images as I want in whatever format I like without problems. Are you on a Mac, PC? Have you redone your configs for this new version so that it's not using image savers from 8.0?

maybe that is it... actually, I seem to recall that certain image formats seems to crash it no matter what version - maybe it is something screwy with my syste. I am on a wintel machine and I just might try redoing my config...

I reinstalled lightwave and reapplied the patch and it seems that it works fine now.

You just need to replace the relevant export plugin. PNG Export has died on me a few times.
