This node calls lightworks 'across the bridge'.

Stan provided the solution at our Tuesday night scriptor meeting. Many MANY thanks Stan!

It's called LW_ModelRender.

To use, you have to have one Model view open.

The buttons work as follows:

LW Model Render - Renders the Model view, but does not render to file.

LW Model Render To File - opens the Lightworks dialog. When the dialog opens, configure the render.

LW Model Render Properties - opens the lightworks properties panel in the panel view.

On a similar note, I wrote a Model side plugin which I will be incorporating into a package, hopefully today.

To keep it available in the Panel:
Open Link Editor.
Select the node: LW_ModelRender
Click and drag icon in upper left corner of node in LE and select: Detach

By selecting Detach, this view of the node will remain in the Panel view.

The toolbar version..
the lightyworksrender.rsobj which is the toolbar ,can be put in the /project/windows manager space then activated by closing ts,then reopen or should also activate by going to modelside and back. (note icons are slightly larger.)

I have just published this on TurboSquid for $1,000,000.00.


Seriously though. I have uploaded it to TurboSquid.


Lightworks Workspace

the process was pretty easy. But it'll be good to have a category for Scripts, or Plugins, or Utilities. Something like that. Currently I put this under 'Collections'; which is as close to a category that this fits under. It's definitely not Space, and not Animal. :D

Thanks for posting to TurboSquid! I'm currently busy so grabbing what I can in terms of plugins and scripts but not installing, and not always catching them all.

Some point in the next few weeks I'll stop and review, but will be hard to find things on the forum, so the more I can find on TurboSquid under the trueSpace tag, the easier it will be for me to keep track of layers, selection cages, view centering, lightworks rendering from workspace, and all these other goodies I've been noticing lately!

frootee, did you update the links above or is turbosquid the only place to download the current script?

Hi v3rd3.

No, I did not update the links in the first post. I just uploaded the same thing to turbosquid. :)

However, I did release another (hopefully useful) utility here. With this little package you can render your animations using Lightworks, from the Workspace side.

It calls the LW engine, and renders each frame to a still image file.

As a side note, I am beginning to really see the value of using TurboSquid as an online repository; I am trying to find the things I've uploaded

here on the forums and can't find them. :D

you can find all the attachments that you have uploaded from the User CP toward the bottom of the menu.

Nice. Thanks kena. :)

I will be uploading more stuff to turboSquid. I figure it'll be easier for other users to find trueSpace stuff there as well.

You're welcome Burnart!

This is the point that TomG is making; the fact that useful tools such as this get lost in the forums;

whereas they will be easier to access on turbosquid. is a privately held community resource website dedicated to Active Worlds.
