View Full Version : Motion Designer "can't scan objects!"

06-04-2003, 12:05 PM

I've recently started using Lightwave 6.5 on a machine with OS 10.2.4. I've updated to 6.5b and downloaded all of the Plug-in updates.

I was testing out some tutorials on Motion Designer (Collision Detecting & Waving a Flag) and followed everything "by the book", but when I hit the START button in the Motion Designer controller, all I get is a message saying "can't scan objects!", and nothing changes in Layout.

I believe that I've added all of the available plug-ins.
Does anybody know what would cause this?

I think (this is dim and distant) that MD would give that error in 6.5 if you hadn't set your Bounding Box Threshold to a value higher than either the polygonal count of your MD Target object or the total number of polys in the scene. Can't remember which.

Ah ha! That was it.
Thanks Julian.
