View Full Version : [316] }...what's this?!?

05 May 2008, 06:51 AM
i tried importing a lightwave model like i normally would and then i get this error at the bottom of the screen in red. does anyone have a clue as to what this means.

maybe it would help if you'd tell us what the error says ?

Open the script editor/log (the scroll/standing bunny icon at the bottom, or ALT+F4) and report the whole error.
Have you logged a bug with Softimage's support too btw?

The most common error I find with importing LWO models is when there are two point polygons present. Softimage just doesn't understand what they are.

toonafish: that's all thats there at the bottom. on the side ( i think ) it'll read "false" when i tried to import the object. i'm not at home right now, but that much i remember.

ThE_JacO: i'm going to try yog's suggestion first before i go and report it.

yog: well as i stated above i'm gonna check for 2 point poly's. because i can import some objects just not all. so that seems logical. i'll keep you guys posted tonite once i get home.

guys thanks for the input you're awesome.

Anything pre LW 6 format wont open with Point Oven... so if you object is very old or saved by accident as LW 5Xxx format this can be a cause.

i'm sorry i should have mentioned i have lw 9.3 and xsi 6.5. i had imported a basic model of it before, but after fudging with it in lw it gave me the error when i tried to re-import ( some time after).

yog was right. it was a 2 point poly...1 stinking 2 point poly. now i can import just fine. thank you guys for the speedy reply and the help.

Be aware that LightWave can handle also disconnected lonely vertices, even if they may import some cases, in xsi they may cause you trouble.
