I'm very new to Lightwave and I'm doing a tutorial I bought from Simply Lightwave called Rocketship.

So far everything has been fine. Now i"m on the last steps and the tut wants me to do Atlas mapping to the rocket's windows for a reflection map.

I'm following exactly along but I get this error when i try to do the Atlas mapping:

"Atlas mapping requires surface polygons to be selected"

What does this mean? I have the two polygons selected - the windows. They are actually Ngons in Lightwave speak.

I have tried this with a simple box and it worked. Any ideas on what I need to look for to get this to work?

Thanks!

I have never seen that message but my first thought would be to recreate the polys and try again.
