Hi

I'm new to LW, is there any way of browsing thru your models without having to open them first in Modeler?

Thanks

3D Browser at http://www.mootools.com/plugins/us/index.asp has a very nice free viewer for 3D objects and images. He has also released a plug-in for drag and drop capability into Lightwave. Sweet!

Good Luck

I think I may be missing the point of a program that lets you view the model by loading it into a 'separate' program instead of into modeler. Either way you need to load it into something to view it, whether modeler or another program, so what's the benefit? Now if you could load a range of models and save the resulting images into a pdf page to create a catalog of your models, then that would be beneficial. I know K3D will allow you to save as an image, but I would like to see some form of batch processing to make doing this with multiple objects more practical. Just a few thoughts.

With K3D you can quickly flip thru a directory full of objects. Its more convinient in many cases then firing up modeler (for me at least). :)

This! Also does images as well. And don't foreget, drag and drop into LW.
