i have an object with collision turned on that makes contact with another object that has hardfx on, and i have the settings for it to cause very little damage, but i want the object to make contact again a few frames later and demolish the remaining peices of the other object. what is the best way to do that?

you can keyframe the bounce/bind power, click the E next to the value dialogue to get to the graph editor for the setting

i have another problem now though...when i try to save an animation as a .mov(quicktime) lightwave crashes. i have quicktime on my computer, is there something different that i need to output that format

I would do a search for a better answer than I could give but the general view is to save to an image sequence then convert that to your desired animation format
