Try rescanning your plugins.

thanks for such a fast reply unfortunately i tried that too and still no change.

Just one more step, reset your menus to defaults (Alt F10, Presets menu) - you'll lose any customisations you've made, so make sure you can recreate them.

try hiting alt-f10, then the configure menus window will open. click on the presets dropdown menu at the top right and select one of the other styles then select default again. that might help.

guess I typed to slow :(

yes! thanks. im new to lightwave and forgot about that menu.

i just had to assign the different dynamics under the dynamic object because no dynamics where already there. i would think that they would be but i guess not.

you can always use FXBrowser to apply or create FX from scratch... and you should always have it open and use to calculate anyway :D
