After having left a cloth dynamics sequence calculating for 9 hours only to come back and find that LightWave had 'unexpectedly quit', I began to start thinking what a great idea it would be to have an option for LightWave to write a file to disk after each frame is calculated. in addition, it would REALLY be helpful if a calculation could be continued from the last frame calculated after a crash (or intentional quit) somewhat like Syflex or Realflow.

Given the amount of time necessary for high quality simulations, some kind of insurance policy is essential for mission critical work.

That would be very cool :)
