Importing back from LW3

Recommended Posts

I'm running a Mac G3 with VW8.5.2. Whenever I try to import back from LW3 the process begins but is excruciatingly slow, then freezes up and/or crashes the program. The progress meter at the bottom of the screen show that it gets through about 12 of 95 instruments before it locks.

This is my first time doing the LW import/export thing so I'm probably screwing something up.

I haven't had that specific problem, but I always make sure that VW is set to use somewhere between half and 2/3 or your system memory. Once you get it loaded, can you post back what settings you use in LW3 to create the file that VW imports correctly?
