View Full Version : can't find .mdd file?

02-02-2006, 04:19 PM
Hi there! I used MD_Scan to save an animation cycle for s single firefly. I sucessfully applied the MD_Plug back to it, removed the bones, and the animation cycle plays fine.

When I open that scene again, it asks me to locate the .mdd file. Not a big deal until I'm trying to create a swarm of fireflies and it has to ask me to locate the file for each one!

Have problems with this? Am I putting the file in a place lightwave can't see it? What's the deelio?

Normaly you'd put them in a folder named 'mdd' in your content directory - it should save an absolute path regardless, but give that a try

Thanks! It didn't work in a folder called mdd on my content directory, but I noticed the browser opened on my "scenes" folder. I put the .mdd in my scenes folder, linked the file, saved, quit, and reopened. It didn't ask for the .mdd file. Huzzah! Now I can either re-link my whole swarm or just set it up again. I assume the problem has been fixed. Gracias!
