View Full Version : Help with bones

10-20-2006, 12:38 AM
Hi there,

I'm a student trying to do my first walk cycle. I've modeled a character and created bones and set the weight maps right. I did this all in modeler. But when I send the object to Lightwave the bones dont appear :( Not sure why? Does anybody have any ideas?

I'm using LW 8.5

Thanks, and sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

You need to convert them in layout from skelegons to bones.
