View Full Version : Not Saving Textures...

I was wondering if anyone could help me out with a couple rather interesting problems I'm having with Lightwave 7.0 (PC).

The first, is that the program will not save a texture. I have a flat polygon, I clip map it (and it saves this) but whenever I apply a texture to it, keyframe, save, and then open it up, the texture is gone. The texture is a .tga (Targa)... has anyone else had any similair problems?

Also, I'm experiencing a bit of slowdown, not just when rendering but for a minute or two randomly. Once again, anyone experience similair problems or know how to fix it up? BTW, it will do this for anything... even a completely blank scene.

Finally, I can't seem to find out how to cel-shade something. I'm coming from Inspire which has a plugin and another option in the objects subpanel. I applied SuperShader in Lightwave, but it doesn't give me the same look. Any recommendations?

Thanks for any help!

Your texture is saved with the object, not the scene. Do "Save All Objects". I created a button on the menu, don't know how anyone lives without doing that, should be there by default. :)
