i have a problem with LW crashing as soon as i open one of the material dialogs.

my steps: i add the 'maxwell shader' in the shader tab, double click on the shader and then chose 'diffuse' with the popu menu. as soon as the material is started to be drawn, LW quits unexpectedly. i had the same issue when choosing 'emitter' the first time. after reopening the project i could select everything. not so with the diffuse material - i repeated 3 times, it always crashes.

my specs: OSX 10.3.8, LW 8.2.1. powermac G5 2x1.8ghz, 4G RAM, radeon 9800 mac special edition, double monitor setup.

Sometimes it works, sometimes not. And it seems that we can't use any bitmap textures at the moment, MW failed to load any textures from different paths. And no dielectic materials too, because it always crashes. :cry:
Uuuh, and now MW doesn't like one of my objects, in the first renderings it showed nicely, but now it doesn't appear in the rendering anymore, even if i kill it from the project, save and re-add it again. But nice to play with the LW plugin it though.

hehe, yes - nice to play around, seems to be a little bit lunatic this first release on OSX... i built up a very simple scene in modeler (one ground plane, 4 walls and a roof) and in this scene i have no crashes when selecting the maxwell material popup. but with my prebuilt test scene (which is much more complex) still no way! :-(

go figure... i hope it's only because the baby is still a baby :-)
for the moment i give it up - waiting for the next round...

cheers
