View Full Version : End Preview Crash

08-09-2006, 03:24 PM
I have seen other people online have a similar problem, back when 8.5 came out, but never heard of any fix for it.

Basically, after I have made a preview and am done watching it, right after I click the "end preview" buttong, Lightwve disappears never to be seen again.
this is Lightwave 8.5 on MAC OSX 10.4.7.

Thanks for any help in the matter.

This has been fixed in version 9.

I think the old 8.5 workaround was to set your end frame longer than you needed, then stop the preview before it finishes. Then copy the /Applications/LightWave/Programs/Current Preview.mov file to another location and open it in QuickTime... It was a pain, but it worked...

Wow, you're right, it did work, and yes that is kind of a pain, but not too much. Thanks for the tip.
