I have been a Lightwave user for many, many years. I am new to Blender and I’m trying to learn how to use it. I started with version 2.49. Just as I was starting to get the hang of things, I ran across a tutorial for 2.57, so I figured I should upgrade. Now I find myself having to start learning all over again from scratch! Almost everything is different, and I can’t find things that I used to use. I’m not sure if they’re gone, or hiding somewhere.
I went to import a Lightwave model, which I could easily do in 2.49, but the import/export for the Lightwave format seems to be gone. Why!? I have a huge library of Lightwave format models, plus I will probably still be using Lightwave occasionally. I have been working on a model using both Blender and Lightwave.
Can this import/export filter be downloaded somewhere?
When I installed version 2.57, it seems to have replaced version 2.49. Do I have to re-install that?
Just some of the many questions I have.
