View Full Version : Lightwave to Maya

I have a big problem :-)
I must convert Lightwave scene including[object, bones, ik) to scene file format of Maya. My friend must make a project for school and this projects must be in a Maya file format. If someone can help me please give me a info.

Thx for help

Well, the only way would be the FBX format but even there you would lose a lot of information. Quite likely you would have to do half the work again in Maya (mainly the bones and skin binding).

well, there is a new plugin point oven, does your friend need to do animation in maya or just rendering and texturing, if so you could animate in lightwave then use point oven and do all rendering and texturing in maya.
