What is an LS file?
An LS file is a script containing commands in the LScript language that automate actions in LightWave 3D rendering software. Users create scripts to perform repetitive or complex tasks and add new features to the software. Examples of functions LScripts can produce include automatically drawing points and polygons and creating object motions.
LightWave 3D is a 3D graphics and animation program artists and animators use in various industries, such as film, video game development, architecture, and advertising. You can access the LScript utility in the Layout and Modeler programs included with LightWave 3D by selecting the Utilities tab. You can then access the LScript tools located in the left pane.
How to open an LS file
You can open LS files with LightWave in Windows and macOS. For example, to open an LS file in the Layout or Modeler programs included with LightWave 3D, select the Utilities tab, then choose LScript in the "LScript" section in the left pane.
Since LS files store LScript language in plain text, you can also open them with a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad (Windows) or Apple TextEdit (macOS). You may need to rename the file extension to .txt for the text editor to recognize it.
