I just got a few more Gig of Ram for my machine; so I thought I'd check out the render speeds. For some reason, when I load an older scene, the textures aren't associated with the file anymore? Does anyone know why? As far as I know, the textures are still in the same files, in the same directory.

textures are saved with the objects not the scenes. See if the textures still work with an older copy of LW. I always keep older installs aro0und for bug checking.

I've got LW 8 still installed. I'll check it out. If textures are saved with the objects, can I just replace the objects to get the textures to show up?

Just tried it in 8, same thing.

Seems odd that everything in a scene isn't saved (including textures)? Isn't there a way to do this?

Texture settings belong to the object. So, regardless of how many times you save the scene, if you don't save the Objects, reloading of the scene will get you no change in the object.

Save all objects and your textures will get saved, too.

Ah; I'll have to do that.
