I downloaded the plug-in and have tried putting it in various folders in the plugins directory but I cant figure out how to get access to it. I tried "add plugin" and it says it added two, even when I select just the one, but it doesnt say where it added it. Its not in the Additional dropdown list under the Utilities>Plugins tab. LW 8.5

Thanks,

TW

PS: How can I make this input box for threads not freak out when I use an apostrophe?

If it's what I think it is, then it's a motion modifier.

Go to the Motion Options panel of an object in Layout and hit "Add Modifier" - you'll find it in the list.

Oscillator.p would be another example.

Thanks for the tip, but no go. Its not there either. I cant see any pattern between what is in the folders on the hard drive and what shows up in the menus in Layout. There are plugins in either one that arent in both, which makes no sense to me. PS - this plugin conforms an object to its path.

I believe its a displacement plugin.

LOL, meaning what?

How do I get it to show up up in -any- menu?
