    OK, I gave that a try. But now I see something that's really spooky. My full version of LW has converted to the Discovery Edition, WATER MARK AND ALL!!! How did this happen?

    But what does it do???
    I know where I'm going and I know the truth and I don't have to be what you want me to be
    I'm free to be what I want

    Supposedly, it uses an experimental renderer that sacrifices quality for the sake of speed. At least that's what I've read.

    I read about this in 3DWorld, can't recall exactly what it said but I remember something about stepping of IK.

    Yeah seems like it's about experimantal IK settings...

    someone posted this on the plugin mailing list recently:

    "Here, I will "paste" a documet I have found on this subject on flay.com,
    but some of the steps don't work in LW 7.5b.
    (....)
    And finally, Michael Blackbourn sends in a tip on how to improve your IK speed in Layout.
    This one's at your own risk and is part of LW's "Experimental Features":

    First enable the experimental features in LW (crtl-alt-shift-f1)

    Then bring up the experimental IK options (crtl-alt-shift-f3)

    The options are:
    Max
    Min
    Step Factor
    Iterations

    I've found that I can double my FPS in layout by changing the values to:

    Max: 0.5
    Min: 0.002
    Step Factor: .3
    Iterations: 200

    With almost no accuracy loss in the IK solution.

    Some values can go to much higher or lower with more speed increase, but will affect different numbers of chains/characters differently. Whats acceptable for 1 setup might not work well for another."

    Well, the panels are there, but i didn't feel the urge to experiment yet
