Hi, I am new to Lightwave 7.5c and I am trying to create simple 3D images for use with captured video in After Effects 5.5 using the Extended RLA function. I only find the Extended RLA plug in in the image editor, yet when I try to save images using Extended RLA it gives me an error message that the plug in is only for use in rendering. Yet when I open the image editor with an unrendered scene the add filter drop down is unusable. When I try to load my scene my scene is not highlighted and un-loadable. What am I doing wrong. Thanks in advance.

I assume you want to create images from Lightwave and import them into After Effects.

Lightwave's Image Editor is only for bringing images into Lightwave (not exporting from Lightwave).

So... don't use the Image Editor for this. Instead, under the Scene tab (in LW7.5) hit the 'Image Process' button (it could be hidden under a drop down menu, depending on your screen size).

Reload the Extended RLA plug-in from the Image Process menu.
