View Full Version : Silo obj files cause LW 8 Crash

12-18-2006, 12:10 PM

I have been trying to load a few very simple models that I created in Silo into Lightwave 8. Everytime I attempt this Lightwave crashes. If I first delete the preferences for Lightwave and then attempt to load the obj files, I get an error message to the effect that it cannot load the files, but it doesn't crash.

Anybody out there experiencing this or have any suggestions? I've been trying to get the files loaded for a few days now.

Many thanks.

Hello Tom I see you mention that you are running 8; try updating to the 8.5 version then try bringing in the files. Or if you could put the file for download so that we can take a look at it.

I installed LW 8.5, dumped the preference files for LW 8 and scanned the directory for plug-ins (as per Dan's suggestion).

When I restarted Lightwave I was able to load the problem obj files!

Many thanks for your help.
