Howdy all.

I've been using Lightwave (Win2K) for a couple of months so far - and enjoying it. Until:

I got the 8.2 update, installed it, then went back to my previous bits of work.
I keep getting a message when switching from a scene in Layout where the BRDF shader is used, to Modeller. It reads:

"Could not create data object for BRDF plugin"
Sometimes it kills the shader in Layout, sometimes it leaves it alone.

It is possible that I am (again) the victim of my own stupidity, and have done something wrong on the update. But I honestly don't recall pressing the "Send it all tits up" button.

Any help will be gratefully received.
Cheers.


EDIT:: I have recently found out that the BRDF plugin is part of the core LW prog, and doesn't exist outside of it in that .p suffix format thang.

It is however a really useful shader and I wouldn't mind knowing why the jer-hoonipers it has decided to wrong.
If anyhone knows of a shader that does similar things and doesn't cost much [preferably free :] could they let me know??

Cheers all.
