have you tried rescanning your import/export plugins?

Yes. But I never loaded version 9.5. I think that the plugin came from that version.
See post # 5 here:


Any ideas, anyone?

OK. Found the FBX plugin named Valkyrie. Added it to layout. Still does not appear as an export option. It does show in the modeler though. Can someone please, perhaps from Newtek, tell me how to fix this?

What concerns me here is the 10.4.11 and PPC. We had some build issues with Val early on that prevented it from running on that configuration, but I thought we'd fixed it. I happen to have an identical system to yours, and I'll test it this afternoon.

Heh. I've not been able to get a usable FBX or Collada export out of Layout. FBX loses all UV and texture information and Collada seems to end up with corrupt UV maps. I've fired in a bug report, but it's hard to know what to say. A friend with modo was able to import the LWO and export it without trouble as FBX (although at 400 MB, the export seems very large compared to the non-functional 20-30 MB attempt that LW produced).

Thanks Chilton!
