So the idea is, when you select load object from the menu, you can select an image and have it load directly into the image editor in modeler or layout.

Instead of lightwave trying to load it as an object or scene and getting an error message.

BTW, you can us mine DragDropImage plug-in.. And just drag image in explorer and drop in Layout viewport..

and in modeler opening a scene (not possible now), we could get a list of all the objects in that scene and we could select the ones to open...just an idea

Hi Sensei,

that is PC only plugin I see. I asked, because at the moment you get an error message trying to open an image from the open panel...or any other file that's not an lW object. It would be great it LW new what types of files you are trying to open and deal with them in a better way other than throwing an error.

Hi zardoz,

I made a request similar to that...somewhere. The idea was to open a scene with Modeler and have all the objects referenced in that scene load into Modeler. :beerchug:

Yes. It uses hack with Windows OS directly. I have no idea what is MacOS equivalent..

9.6 supports drag and drop natively across all platforms.
But yeah, a universal loading mechanism would be nice, I think messiah does that.

Well, modo surely doesn't. There's still a separate menu item to load images.
