View Full Version : Reference Image "Tracing"?

01-10-2007, 01:36 AM
I am a complete newbie to Lightwave (8.x), and I'm still digging through the manuals. So it's very possible that this question has been asked and answered googol times before, or is in the manuals. Somewhere.

Is it possible to import an image as a reference (a logo or some other object) and then "trace" the outlines, either manually or automatically? That's a feature of the old Amiga program, Aladdin 4D that I sure could use right about now.

Thanks in advance!

In modeler, press d for display options. The Backdrop tab is where you can load an image to trace.

Thanks heaps, Silk! To add insult to injury, it seems that I was in Layout, not Modeler. [shaking head] In the old poem, I think it's Wednesday's child "has far to go". I must have been born on a Wednesday. [wry smile]

Thanks again.
