    Newbie needs scene conversion

    OK, Used to use LW 5.5 years ago. Just recently found an old CD with hundreds of my old scenes. Any quick way of converting those old scenes to LW 8.5? They will not open. I would like to stroll through memory lane.

    You should beable to import the objects, not sure on scene files. In modeler under file>import you should find lightwave 5 from what i read this format was used way back at ver 2 but then I could be wrong about what version.

    Yes, the objects load individually without problems. It would be nice to be able to open the scenes though. Thanks Silk.

    the scene file now (and i think then it was too) is just a simple text file. if you're desparate, you can open a new scene file and an old scene file in a text editor and do some translation by eye-ing it.
