Sometimes when I open a model I get a message that the 3d choulds shader is missing. Other times its the Super Cel Shader. I open surface editor and under the shader tab I noticed that a number of shaders seem to be missing. I thought that they installed with lightwave. Where do I find the them?

You may have a currupted config file. I would rescan for all plugins. Close LW and the Hub, then delete the config files, and restart LW and rescan the plugins directories.

Sometimes you can just rescan the plugins without deleting the configs, but it's usually better to start from a clean slate as it were.

I had a strange occurance a week ago where the surfaces panel pulldown was showing multiple copies of the same plugins. I did a reboot and everything was fine again. It happened after doing a lot of particle render tests. Haven't noticed it since.
