had an object done in LW7.5. which I bought up in LW 8.5. The object is 2 long rectangle poly's that line up 90 dergrees to each othre and run down the Z axis. I used an electrical arching effect (read it, used it, worked great) created with the marble texture 0 diffuse...0 luminosity....used a color marble texture and luminosity texture where you lower the mable turbulance way down to .025 to get the single vein and put it on the X texture axis... except in LW8.5 the same scene and object texture does not behave like it used to in 7.5? did newtek change the proceedural algorythm or math stuff... bummer

Anyone remember this effect, it was in a tutorial somewhere, but for it just not to work anymore in 8.5 sucks. Theres always another way, but I already had it looking good once.

Thanks for any help...I suspect it's a change in the proceedural math.

thanks, I see that... but still dont know what the little envelopes mean on the post page...mine has the nevelope with an arrow...others are red...others are envelope that looks opened?? I see the definitions at the bottom, but this does not explain it? but if I'm getting a reply from you... I guess people are seeing my question...which I was hoping someone might have an answer for...although, I think it is a change in the procedural algarythm???
