View Full Version : I'm missing fbx exporter in modeler and layout

Hi guys,

I updated to 2015 a month ago (on my mac) and need to export a model from modeler as a fbx format, but it's missing in the list. I tried to load the valkrye plug in but it says it can't (and get message 0 plug in in 1 file)

I know I'm missing something, any ideas?

Really? We can't export FBX in 2015? I have been thinking about upgrading and this seems odd.

You can try downloading a fresh copy of Lightwave and installing it again.

fineartist, are you on a Mac? And if so, which OS? I remember testing 2015 on 10.6 and having the same issue. If I remember correctly, customer support said that plugin requires 10.8 or higher. I have since upgraded my OS but haven't tested yet.

Oh, good. I found this on the Lightwave3D site - "LightWave fits seamlessly into large multi-software pipelines - with its powerful interchange tools including FBX, ZBrush GoZ, Collada, Unity Game Engine Support, and Autodesk Geometry Cache." Whew.

Yep DesertRat, had to upgrade to get it to work. Newtek customer service was wonderful helping me figure this out. Gave me a excuse to buy the new Imac with 5k, LOVE IT! :)
