    Did this script get added to the official LW plugin database? I couldn't find it when I searched just now (also - I haven't checked to see if it works in LW2019)

    The problem lies with the LW panels UI - the code for it is really ancient. In LW2018, they've started the process of moving to QT for the UI (which supports retina displays), but that's only for a...

    It's certainly a lot of work. But the new mesh system is in place now, so rebuilding modelling tools in Layout may be less of a pipe dream now. I don't doubt it's years of work, but hey - we've...

    That would be perfect. Would you be able to save frame ranges if it was a script though? Be a bit of a pain to re-type them all out every time you want to re-export all the LWS's.
