Hey guys, I have a little problem..

For some reason I can not load video files as a background when compositing in LightWave 7. I did it a few months ago, and it worked, but now it's not working.

When I browse for a file, it will not list video files (.avi in particular), so I have to go to 'show all files'. Then when I do that, and select an AVI, it won't load it. It just goes back to saying 'no picture'.

I'm not sure if this is a bug or not? Is there some other option I needed to click first? It's probably something obvious but I still can't figure it out!

Thanks!

:)

The .avi extension not recognized is a pref thing : open your LW3.CFG in notepad and look for the line that says (or not)

FileType Animations *.avi;*.mov

add / remove any extension you want in here.

Now for the anim not showing up, check you still have AVI.p and QTTools.p loaded.

That line was actually already in my LW3.CFG file, and I tried to load the plugins too, to no avail :(

I think I'll just try again tomorrow on a different computer if I can't figure it out... Thanks :)
