I exported materials from Daz Studio which created the .orbx file, into a folder in my LiveDB folder.
When I opened them in Lightwave 2018 LiveDB Local, they all have same name, Data I/O and have no thumbnail. I right click to create thumb nail but I have no direct way to know which named material it is.
I opened one of the .orbx files and I read this at the top of the file;
<graph id='1' type='1' name='Data I/O'>
<graph id='605' type='1' name='Looking Back Earrings: defaultMat, Earring' position='0 0'>
Here I can see Lightwave is using the graph id=1 name and not the 605 name.
So I opened Octane standalone and looked at these files there and they had same Data I/O name but at least in Octane, if I hover over the thumbnail, it says the name of the material.
In Lightwave 2018 it does not show the name when I hover over it.
Right now my workaround is to load in one of the Data I/O into the LiveDB materials node and then press Edit Octane Material. Then I right click and choose Import and then steer to to where my local db files are located to list all the .orbx by the name I saved them as and load them in.
Very tedious to say the least
So is there something I did wrong?
Is there a way to fix them?
Worse case, once I figure out Data I/O is which, can I change the LiveDB name?
