    Copy Scene File Script

    I am looking for a plugin that I can tie to a Button in Lightwave that will COPY the current scene file (.lws) to a specific location on my computer.

    We use a network render manager that has an AutoLoad directory. I would like to press a button in lightwave that then copies the scene file that has been saved on my computer already, to a predetermined location on my computer.

    Right now I just go up and do a SAVE AS, but that leaves it in my Recent Load list, and is a few more clicks. Anyone know of something like this, or can code it?

    Thanks.

    Which render controller are you using? I modified an Lscript to launch the panel for our Rush farm with all the current scene info entered in.

    I'm nearly done writing this script for you. At least you'll have a selection to choose from!

    Heh, cool.

    Go with Matt's solution. My lscript is a hack workaround. It works but I believe Matt's lscript skills put me to shame.

    Okay, here it is.

    When you first run it, it will ask for a save location, this gets written to disk in your LightWave Config folder (it will then save the scene file as well once you specify a directory).

    After that, when run, it will simply save the DISK version of the loaded scene file to the previously specified location, so make sure you SAVE the loaded scene file before running it.

    Hope it's what you were wanting!

    Cheers
    Matt
