View Full Version : Couple noob questions

Hello. I was working with a mountain scene. I saved about 3 times in the process. Then suddendly lightwave crashed. I went to my saved scenes, and every one of them did not save my textures or bump maps! How can I ensure that my textures will be saved?

Also, is there a way to delete surfaces onces you create them?

Surfaces are saved with the objects, not the scene, so you need to 'Save All Objects' to save any surfaces.

Also, any surfaces that are no longer assigned to any polygons are automatically removed when you next load your model / scene.

Surface information is saved with the object not the scene. So make sure and "Save All Objects" as well. Then if you don't have a surface applied to any geometry it will automatically be removed after you save and reload the object. If you are working between layout and modeler all the surfaces will stay active during the session.
