Hello,

I got a copy of realflow 4 special edition in 2008. I have the nextlimit.p plugin and Lightwave 8.

I have some projects tn realflow working and have got to the point of generating .bin files in a particles folder and a .bin file in the mesh folder.

I need to get an obj file for use in another application and do not see any option to export a lightwave object .lwo directly from RF4. I dont understand the instructions in the pdf file that came with the plugin for RF4 to Lightwave mesh.

Could anyone help with some instructions on how its meant to work ?


thanks

Hi

you can save out liquid meshes not only as *.bin, but also as *.lwo in the export central. If you have native objects in RF4 such as spheres and planes, they can be saved as obj-files.
The tutorials at the realflow site should explain the use of the plugins, at least for the RF5 version:

Myself I never used lightwave, but maybe you can find some informations in the older threads here on the forum for lightwave.
