 ASE Spline Import - README

 ASE Spline Import imports curves via Autodesks ASCII Scene Export, .ASE files 
 into Modeler.

 * Usage
 * Source Code

 General installation steps:

 * Copy the JS_ASESplineImport.lsc to LightWave's plug-in folder.
 * If "Autoscan Plugins"
   is enabled, just restart LightWave and it's installed.
 * Else locate the "Add Plugins" button in LightWave and add it manually.
 I'd recommend to add the tool to a convenient spot in your modeler's menu, so 
 all you have to do is press the button when you need to use the tool. I have 
 located the button on my Hair Tab in Modeler and named it Import Splines.


 This tool is quite straight forward to use, but here is a quick guide 
 just for the sake of it.

 Filename: The .ASE file to import. The arrow on the right opens a file 
 browser, which defaults to the objects folder in the current content 

 Name New Layer: The .ASE file imports in the next empty layer and 
 places the curves there. If this box is checked the new layer gets the 
 name typed into the textfield next to it.

 Scale Import: Let’s you scale the splines by a factor of your choice
 to easier match the import with packages using other scaling units than
 LightWave 3D.

 That's pretty much it. Hope some of you find this tool useful.
