    How Limited is the LW bundled with VT?

    I guess I'm a little slow on the uptake but how limited is Lightwave 8.5 with VT5? For example, I'm trying to import an EPS but there's no EPSLoader. Where can I get a detailed rundown of what's there and what's missing?

    No plugins that require a dongle number will work.
    Outside of that, it's the same, iirc.

    It sounds like your menus got munged. Do this:

    Open Modeler
    Hit Alt F10
    From the Presets drop-down menu, choose LightWave 7
    From the same Presets menu now choose Default.
    Hit Done.

    You should have the menu back with the EPS loader.

    Why does NT do that? Seems strange to offer the whole program but not allow 3rd party enhancements.
