I'm running Lightwave version 9.3. When I save a scene file, it saves as version 4. If I use 'export Lightwave 5.6' it saves as version 1. How do I save a version 3 file???

And: Where can I find the latest info on the new file formats...

And: What's the easiest way to find which version of Lightwave is considered released, and what is still considered beta? Is version 9.3.1 beta, or is the 9.3.1 patch beta?

Thanks for any input...

You can 'export' a scene from layout as ver 6.0, it's been the same structure for many releases.
Alternatively, providing your objects are not LW9.X - simple editing the scene file and changing 4 to 3 is good.

Note however, if your models are 9.x, you will need to save them as a previous version format then build a scene using those.
