I have a ton of mdd files loaded via MDplug on lots of objects and I have to go to each object and reload the mdplug to update the animation.

Is there a way for a global refresh/ reload on all of the plugins that is externally linked?

simple cheat would be to rename the file to the same name as teh old MDD and reload scene. It would go look in same place and load new file :)

Example.

I have 20 objects that all have mdd plugin (say I using Syflex in maya and got the deformation out via mdd). Now I need ti refresh the deformation data in LW.

Now I could relaod the scene but what if it takes 5 minutes to load a scene.

What I have to do is got to each object , open the MDplug and click ok.
Thats tedious.

and unnecessarily repetitive.

Now a global reload/refresh would be great or mdplug just uses the sata on the harddrive rather than whats caches in memory.

Pointoven pro does this .. however I am broke and i need this on every computer I use.
