View Full Version : Help with Motion Designer

I'm trying to do this tutorial on making a curtain move in motion designer in lightwave 9 but it doesn't seem to work... when I calculate, the mesh basically disappears completely.

The tutorial seems a bit overly complicated (1 point polys) but I've tried it they exact way it's stated and my own way and I can't get it to work at all.

I suspect it's something to do with Motion Designer with Morphs but not sure...

anyone else done this lately?

could someone please try... it should only take betwee 5 and 10 mins.

edit:... here's the link to the tutorial on the lightwave tutorials page: http://www.newtek.com/products/lightwave/tutorials/animation/curtain/index.html

okay.. i this a major bug in Motion Designer?

I'm trying a different tutorial now...
all I'm doing is downloading the files and trying to calculate them but the objects are either just enlarging in a few frames or disappearing like before.

the files are at the top of the tutorial.. I'm on PC
