    Buy a high-end, server-hardware-equipped machine (what the MacPro is) from Dell or HP with similar specs, and you'll discover it sets you back about as much.

    The elephants' hide wrinkles in the images still look "too uniform" in application/strength, IMO. You need to use a texture to control their overall strength, as real elephants don't have uniformly...

    Yep, if you use weighting in LW anim, then IMO you need PaintWeights, it's a game-changer.

    If there's any sort of visible pattern/texture on the fuse, that approach won't look right: The fuse texture will also appear to slide towards the dynamite as the fuse "burns", instead of the...

    Hang on, are you saying that when "deforming body" sphere wasn't highest density, the rigid body cubes were also causing the "deforming body" sphere to deform? That sounds off.

    BTW, the issue is likely Windows-only -- it appears to occur in Windows-specific DLLs, and it's in an area that's highly platform-specific. Thus far I've been unable to reproduce it here on Mac LW,...

    LW isn't exactly "defensive" in its handing of error states, to put it politely, so once "off the rails" it's common to see all sorts of cascading exceptions, etc. triggered.

    Which command you mean, precisely? Is that how it's labeled, or is that the actual command?
