I'm trying to parse LWS files to extract the camera information. Is there some document of how ALL the camera data is stored in the LWS file. Even some of the variables I can find are not clear. Aperture height for example is entered in inches but stored in ??. Does anyone know a source for these variables. Newtek's LWS documentation doesn't cover it. Thanks.

It may be a good idea to post this question in the programmers section. An idea though, have you thought about saving the motion file and try to parse that data.

Well, I can help you with that one. Internally, all distance based measurements are in metres (even though the aperture height is the _only_ measure displayed on the screen in inches only), angles in radians.
