Hi,

Let's say you have some experience using LightWave. And let's say you have some experience in the C programming language. How can you convert those two skills to giant piles of money, instant recognition, and lasting (nigh-eternal) fame?

Write a plug-in!

We've cleverly hidden a file in the /SDK/Samples/ folder of every copy of LightWave, called 'samples.xcodeproj'. Anyone with the (free) MacOSX developer tools installed can open that file, and have instant access to lots of example plug-ins. Find one that looks easy, and start poking at it!

And feel free to post Mac specific SDK questions here!

Thanks,
-Chilton

lol... too funny Chilton!

In case anyone wanted to get the Apple Developer tools, online registration is free:

Now that the flood gates are opening... I'm hoping to see tons more UB plugins here! ;)
