Does anyone know how to make animations repeat itself. Such as a walk cycle?

And also. Does anyone know how to put a image on a object in modeler?First I go to surface editor, pick a surface, press on the T, add a image, and click on use texture. The image shows up in the sample screen but not on the object.

To repeat a walk cycle, look in the graph editor and for every channel you have used/keyed, you can select repeat as the post the last key behavior. It's just below the frame n* and value boxes.

-A surface image will show in modeler, make sure you have the viewport set to textured not just shaded.

And try reading on the Motion Mixer (a non linear animation tool that allows you to use animation clips as if you where editting in a video editor.)

I have another silly question. My "render options" submenu in Layout is missing. How do I get it back?

Not really sure what your question has to do with this thread. But first thing I would try is resetting the menus.
If that does not help, then delete your config files, rescan your plug ins and then reset your menu.
Here is a pdf of the steps for Version 8 of lightwave.
