    Vertex Loader still in Manual!

    Why do the docs for version 10.1 still include reference to Vertex Loader? I have never gotten it to work with 10.1, and earlier posts suggest that there is no plan for Lightwave to address the...

    Right. But the problem is, in LW 10.1 you can't select both the parent and a child. At least I can't see a way to do it.
  4. scene editor: select parent and child?

    I want to scale the keys of an object, and a child of that object. But there seems to be no way to select both of them for a single opperation. Is this true? Since there are so many options for...

    Collada Exporter lacks normals

    The collada exporter in 9.6 wasn't very useful since it didn't output normals. I'm surprised to see that the collada exporter in LW 10 still doesn't output normals. Will this be addressed in the core...

    You would think that would work. Unfortunately, what happens is Lightwave runs from frame 1 to 100 and then renders frame 100 only.

    I'm trying to work out a MasterScript that avoids the problem,...

    Thanks for the input. I think you're right about this requiring a Master Script. Learning how to write Master Scripts was not how I'd planned to spend the day, but I suppose it will be a handy skill...

    Nope, I don't think it works...

    That is the behaviour I would expect, but it doesn't seem to be so. The alpha channel is recognized in texturing objects, but it is NOT recognized by the surface transparency. Try it out.
