Hi all,

I just recently started using Lightwave 8 and have just been doing some tutorials up to now.
Yesterday I did the one about animating blood cells that can be found here on newteks site.
My problem is that when I start up LW8 there is no way for me to add->dynamic object (under items). This option is greyed out. My first thought was that I had to load this part through add plugins, but after loading every single plug available I still couldnt access this feature.
I downloaded the project files and if I load them there is emitters in there - but still I cant add them in a fresh project.
:confused:
Thankfull for any help!

It works for me. Just open Layout, under "Items" panel (top menu), in menu on left under "Add" select Dynamic Object, then choose one, like Particle, then accept the default settings. You should have a dynamic object.

Are you using a Discovery Edition, non-dongled version, of Lightwave?

I'm not sure if any of the LW features are dissabled in that version.
