    Yes, it crossed my mind that it could be a Win issue, and like you it reared its head a long time after installation. I figure though, if it is a Win issue, there might be more users affected by this...

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Please can you explain what you mean by '-0 flag'. Thanks for the reassurance Kaptive. Since overwriting the program my taskbar shortcut icons for LW are now suddenly...

    Layout opening with 2 interfaces!

    In Modeller, if I hit the 'Send to Layout' button, Layout opens two interfaces, one with the expected object and the second with a blank field. I'm using LW2015.3-64 which has been working fine until...

    I see that there are 8 maps supplied with each RTD scan, some that don't have Octane-friendly inputs such as depth, AO and gloss. Do you have a simple scheme for allocating these maps in Octane? Any...

    Thanks Jason, This wouldn't have occurred to me - you've probably saved me a few days and who knows how many brow wrinkles!

    Thanks Lino, This is really helpful. I've not used GUV tiles before - I presume that I save them out in the usual way in Zbrush. If you are reading this Juanjo, can you say if GUV tiles are supported...

    Bingo! All I needed was a Normal map but curiously both it and the texture map required the Zbrush V-flip to be unchecked. Now to the job I've been dreading, translating the skin texture. Thanks...

    Thank you for this Juanjo, I'll try this out later and get back to you - I might need to redo the maps. David

    Hi Jason, I need to go through Lightwave's Octane plugin, so I'm forced to find a way to texture my model in Lightwave first. Do the settings that I've posted look correct to you?
  10. Thanks for the reply Jason. I'm still stuck...

    Thanks for the reply Jason. I'm still stuck though. The screengrabs show my settings in ZB prior to hitting GoZ. I tried checking and unchecking the V flip on both the map generator and the Alpha...
  11. Zbrush texture/normal/displacement maps into Lightwave

    Does anyone know of a detailed, carefully written pipeline for exporting ZBrush textures into Lightwave. There seems to be a non-intuitive sequence that needs to be followed exactly with V-flipping...

    Thanks for the replies. Yes I was in draft mode but switching it off made no difference, but as RebelHill says, it seems it won't work anyway! At least you've saved me hours of futile headscratching!...

    VPR error when using Fast Skin

    118337
    Hi,
    Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong here? The VPR render is so much darker than the F9 render. As a test I've used a standard ZBrush model with a closed mesh however, I get...

    This is a sobering assessment of our near-term prospects of getting 21st century caustics into LW. The last thing I want to do is invest in, and relearn, MODO for just this one feature. Sensei, yes,...

    I've had no reply from Nitisara either. It would be marvellous if this feature was incorporated into LW 12, or sooner. It might also be be the spur to finally get the accuracy of LW caustics...

    Volumetric AA was switched on. I've also tried every permutation of 'Exclude From VStack'/'Double Sided' with no obvious effect. Re the Radiosity/GI, I should have said that the first image is with...

    Thanks Guys,
    Yes, FFX does render through glass but becomes very sketchy as in the first image. I did mean 'radiosity' incidentally, all the images were raytraced from area lights. I'm using v11.2...

    This Plug-in is the reason I've kept a v.9.6 on my system. Also, it never worked for 64-bit. I really do think Newtek ought to incorporate it into the next build, and whilst they are at it, how about...

    I have the same problem with a padlocked preset shelf, but I don't know how to run LW as an administrator. Please can you help?
