LW Loader 1.6
05/01/08 at 03:07:45
 
Should be rocksolid now.

www.smartibl.com/sibl/downloads/sIBL_Lightwave.zip

v1.6 Changes:      
       - excluded MacOS system files from file scan (starting with ".")
     - requester is resizable (only vertically).
     - choice of gamma and linear color space workflow.
     - appendix for scenes created by the plugin is user-customizable.

Especially the first thing I found necessary when the sIBL Collection on a PC is ever accessed with a mac.

Unfortunately in my case LW 931 64 on x64  crashes immediately when I press SIBL button. I can't even read the error message (Line xyzx...).
I checked the sibl directory in regedit, tried unc and local version.
Any suggestions? thanks, milau

No it never manages to set the directory, so is stuck on first run.
LightBitch works perfectly though Smiley

Ouch. very embarrassing.
I had one like that on the Mac and fixed it with a bandaid. Seems to be one of these mysterious LW stability traps. It actually crashed my LW - I had to take a screenshot movie, and on a freeze frame I could see the error message pop up... The fix is really just a sleep command after disk access, so LW doesn't stumble over its feet. Kind of driving with the parking break now, not sure if this is perfect but it fixed it for me. Then again, I have just a MacBookPro, so your LW might be running faster... Wink

Try this version and tell me if it works:

well, I can't replicate this here, this is my problem.
Try this one, and if that doesnt help

- what exactly happens?
- in case LW crashes instantly - do you see any error message pop up? Even for a blip?
- if yes - can you capture it in a screencast and freeze frame?

sorry for this mess...

grrrr .... bummer.
I'm running out of ideas.
Very hard to fix a crash that doesn't happen on my machine.

Is yours a PowerPC, not Intel-based Mac?

Yes I run the UB version on PPC G5 - other plugins I need are UB only.
I can try in the CFM version or on an intel Macbook pro.

Lightwave quits too fast to capture any error message.

I have been using LightBitch as a work around to place a key light/s manually. This seams to work well for now.

Thanks for looking into this - especially over your weekend!

edit: works perfectly on CFM version of Lightwave. Good for using with fPrime & G2!

Thank YOU for taking the time and testing this sucka. I know exactly how easy it is to dismiss a plugin that you haven't seen yet Smiley

See, technically this is not a plugin, but an lscript - so it *should* work identically on each platform. If it wouldn't be for LW that it depends on....

I have an old PowerPC-based macbook laying around, guess i will have to check it out.

That's great!

btw - I've been shooting hdr panoramas for at least 4 or 5 years & still managed to glean a lot of useful stuff from your book. If you ever release the sIBL editor for mac I'd happily contribute to your user-library.
