    Converting Cinema 4D models

    Is it possible to convert Cinema 4D models to be used in Lightwave 2015? If so are there any details that need to done for the conversion? Is it only certain versions that are compatible with LW 2015?

    You can export Collada, FBX or OBJ from C4D and import into Modeler.

    Yes, works well for example using fbx 2012. The other way, C4D can directly load LWO.

    Edit: explanation why fbx 2012, it just works well for me and I assume it's compatible to most applications so I haven't really tested other versions or formats, maybe someone has more experience.

    Fbx 2014 works good as well, but newer version don't as LW doesn't support it yet.
