View Full Version : .lwo & .lws are confused

11-27-2005, 09:43 PM
All of a sudden, my .lwo files have the "Motion" icon & want to open in "LWSN" and my .lws scenes have the "Object" icon and want to open in "Hub". When I try to change them in "Get Info" they just change back. What's up?

What, no one knows what can be the problem?

this has always been the case for me.
well, objects open in modeler... but scene files always try to open in the hub.

its a good example of how LW ignores OS conventions, and the result is something nobody expects or wants.

i usually open scenes by dragging them to the layout icon in the dock, and objects by dragging them to modeler, thus working around that particular "feature".

i have the same exact thing happen, .lwo's become motion files ect...but it only happens with object and scene files that i bring in from another computer, if i make the file on my computer then it doesn't have a problem with it at all....my suggestion is to just always open up your files from within modeler or layout rather than from the finder window....

same problem here, though i rarely notice it since i open all my objects/scenes within Lightwave.

similar problems here

I also always open from within Lightwave. It is another Lightwave bug that I have learned to avoid, and then ignore.

yea, it's been like this as long as I've been using it, v6.0. Same thing on the PC too.
