i have some problems with motion designer....its very strange..
image i have a skirt and motiondesinger applied and calculated.
than I save the mdd file and i apply that saved mdd to the mdd-plugin. i save the scene ....and quit lw....i start lw....and load that scene again. during the loading a little requester pops up, telling me that i have to choose a mdd file ....well i choose the mdd file that I saved before ...but it the mdd-loader WONT accept i have to click "cancel"...the scene is loaded and the skirt is not controlled/ deformed by motion designer. now i activate the mdd-plugin for the skirt objekt and i choose the saved mdd-file....and everything works......mhhhh.....very strange....why does lw always asks for the mdd file during the loading the scene?????

thanks in advance...

U can get the same without MD_Scan plug...
After calculation hit save MDD on MD interface, then (after saving) go to object properties and double click on MD_Plug. Here is u have place for MDD file, after loading MDD file with saving scene LW will remember there is the settings.
(i'm usually save MDD files in new folder called MDD that i created under content directory )
Hope this will help :)
