View Full Version : cannot load ANY texture into lightwave

I cannot load any texture into any surface into lightwave modeller. Whenever I browse for a texture and select it, it does not appear in the menu.

I'm using lightwave 7.5, and Mac OSX 10.3.7

My old projects used to have all their textures. But now the textures are gone, and I can't load them. When I load an LWO file, it asks for the textures, so I browse for them. But then they do not appear at all in the model rendition, nor in the Surface Editor.

Okay, are you using 7.5d? If not, best upgrade to that immediately - 7.5 was designed a long time before Mac OSX 10.3 came out and doesn't like it very much. Next thing to do once you've updated, is to load Layout and hit the Option F11 keyboard shortcut. This will bring up a window titled Edit Plug-Ins. Click on the Scan Directory button in there and find your plug-ins folder. When it has read all the plug-ins, you will be presented with the message "xxx plug-ins found in xxx files". Do the same Scan Directory thing again, but this time point it at the LScripts folder.
