Write Morphs LW Plugin - Ver 2.0!

Export endomorph sets to .obj files

Write morphs is designed to aid in using Lightwave for custom morph creation for Poser characters. You bring the Poser character part into Lightwave that you want to make morphs for. And then you create all the morphs you need, each as a separate endomorph. Not only can you make several morphs at a time this way, but you can save the object, load it into Layout and with Morph Mixer, check your morphs for any interaction problems befor taking them back to Poser. Tested with a 129 endomorph object!

Just pick a destination directory and run! A new file named <endomorph map name>.obj is created for each endomorph.

Our write morphs utility now supports multiple output flavors, as requested! It will write the set of endomorphs out as 'squeezed' Poser morph files, as point and face format, which can be read back into Lightwave and as a full .obj file with points, continuous and discontinuous UVs and faces, the normal new object format.

This plugin is designed to be used with single Poser parts loaded into LW, or any model that uses multiple endomorph maps. For working with complete Poser figures - see our Write Morphs by Part plugin.

This utility allows you to choose to create a Poser compressed vertex morph file for each endomorph. WARNING! These files are the recommended method for distributing Poser morphs, but you can not read them back into Lightwave as they are not complete geometry, just the point offsets required by Poser to load a body part morph. So always save your working object as a .lwo or as a set of point and face or complete files.

Had problems reading squeezed morph target files into ProPack? These files are readable by both Poser 4 and ProPack. To fix your other morphs - ProPack requires at least one face line at the end of the file. Poser 4 will accept the end of the file as the end of the vertex list, Pro Pack will not!
