View Full Version : RTV Codec Problems

04-16-2003, 09:03 AM
I just did a system rebuild and changed to XP OS. Rendered an RTV from Lightwave and this morning it would not overlay in TED (no alpha). Never had that happen before. I checked the 'Configure' tab for the 'RTV Codec Properties' and the 'Add Alpha channel to RTV file...' was grayed-out. Don't remember seeing that before either. I hit 'about' on that tab and in the 'Notes section' the 'NTSC: 720 x486...' was also grayed-out.

What is going on here? Do I have an old codec or a bad install? I installed T2 from the new CD for XP and Lightwave 7.5 from the original CD's, then the 7.5b update.

I found the problem.

FYI for anyone reading this:

You have to copy the LW Express plug-in "lw6_vt.p" to the Lightwave standalone plug-in directory.

I knew this at one time... so much software and so many updates... sometimes my brain hurts.
