Hello--

I have a number of .OBJs--with the accompanying .MTL files--that I want to open in Lightwave (9.6).

The problem is that Lightwave is losing the UV map when it imports the file--the image is there, but the map's missing so the image can't be applied to the object. Please advise.

Client-supplied. I'm not sure what app they were created in.

Actually, on further investigation, the problem turns out to be with the models. Some of them have functioning UV maps, and some of them don't.

So...thanks, but never mind.

Check out whether they have vt lines (open .obj in text editor).
