I know this is not new, but it shouldn't be overlooked. For anyone who uses After Effects for compositing or Motion graphics work (and that's quite a lot of us), there are now ways to get Lightwave and AE working together.
For exporting camera and scene specific null data into Lightwave, there is this lovely free plugin that does it at the click of a button.

And for the other way, exporting Lightwave scene information into After Effects, there is this very worth the price solution.

There are some other things out there, but this is what I'm using, both are pretty much one button click and idiot proof and that's why I like em.

I only discovered AE 3D EXPORT the other night when I really needed it for a job I'm doing so I'm so thankful for the developer, perhaps it's old and
everyone knew about it, but I didn't so I just wanted to put it out there again.

Of course what's so nice about the Mentalfish one is that the two apps are updating with live feedback between both.
