Hey, I am having an issue where my scene files are now taking forever to save and the scene files end up being like 200 MB! The same scene before was like only 80 KB. I think I heard of something like this before and a way to fix it. Seems like LW is writing a lot of unnecessary stuff to the file?

LW 8.5
Mac OSX 10.4.10

Thanks for any help!

I remember having having that problem back in the days.
Try flushing all plug ins. That should do it.

As far as I remember it was caused by the never scene editor.

Thanks! I do remember it being something with the plug ins. How does one flush them out exactly? I'm not the most advanced lightwave user. Thanks!

Huh I don't have 8.5 handy, but if I am not mistaking open the master plugins panel (^Q), and remove all the scene editor instances in there.

Hey G M D Three!

Thanks for the tip. Sorry I took so long to get back. I ended up calling Newtek. Anyway they pointed me to a plugin that did pretty much what you just said. There were a load of plugins that were bogging it down. Thanks again!
