View Full Version : Why doesn't Lightwave like file dialogs?

Does anyone have any clue why LW (v8.3 up to and including 9.0) has a tendency to just crash/quit when a file dialog is opened ?
Particularly a save render dialog.

Its just happened again for the hundredth time (v8.3).
FPrime was busy rendering away a nice scene which took a while as it was using radiosity.
After it rendered to a stage I was happy with I click on Save.
Just as I was typing in the name of the file, it CTD'd

This has plagued LW almost as badly as the Hub. Could the hub be responsible in some way ? Modeler was also open in the bg with the model loaded up.

I've had similar crashes with 8.5. Lightwave just closes when file dialog is open with no error message. It just shuts down.

Haven't seen that behaviour in v9, at least not yet. Crossing fingers :)

I have also experienced this, but even more bizarre, it would only QTD if I was opening a file from the desktop, no other folder was affected.
