View Full Version : Lightwave 9.6 scenes to Softimage 2012SAP

12-14-2011, 02:40 AM
It's been a very long time sinse I last posted anything here. Most of the new users wont know me, but to all the friends a made during my LW years, Howday and hope you are all well.

We need to pull some old LW scene files done in LW 9 and get them exported to Softimage 2012 SAP. Both the Collada and FBX formats crashes on Softimage import. Does anyone know if there is a way to get LW scene files correctly exported to Sofimage. We don't have alot of time on this job, so exporting obj's and re doing the scene setups is out of the question.

Any help would be very welcome.

Regards and a friendly wave from good old South Africa.

Obj works fine

oops you wanted scene.. sorry. Try different fbx exporter options, there is probably one that works. Let me know if you find a good way, I will be needing this soon.

Possibly also try running the LW-generated FBXs through the AD FBX converter to export them as the latest FBX version?

This is an old plugin, but it might help a little!
