Hey, I was wondering...
I wanted to use either Merge Trigons X or Untriple as a plugin to quadify a Poser model whose polygons I reduced, but when I try to add the plugins, an error message occurs saying "can't read file" or something like that. Are these plugins the wrong type of file formats? Do they come in other formats, like .p or .lsc? The .rar and .lzh files don't work.:help:

The plugins are compressed to a smaller size and you need a program like WinRAR or WinZIP to uncompress them.

Thanks for your response. But Lightwave still won't add the plugins. It says "Error: cannot load external plugin <plugin>." I think the file formats (.rar and .lzh) are wrong, my Lightwave only loads *.lsc and *.p type plugins. And the website where you get Merge Trigons X is gone now. Is there an alternative website where I can get the plugin(s) in the proper file formats listed above?:stumped: :help:

Like Sande said, uncompress them and they will turn into what you want. rar is a compressed format, probably lzh too but not sure

dgrider, he means .rar and .lzh are compression types such as ZIP.
To extract the files within the RAR / LZH file, you need something like WinRar or a freeware equivalent. This will extract the '.p' or LS/LSC files to your disk which you then load into LW.

No worries, LZH is a format not many folks are used to seeing, used to be popular "back in the day" but now, give me RAR files any day. :)
