i just downloaded the FBX plugins today and none of them work, i was wondering if any of you have a FBX plugin that actually work for maya and LightWave. i ran the package installer and all i wound up with was a bad .p, i try to add it to my plugins with the add plugin and lightwave comes back with an error.

Sorry, I was looking at the wrong installation, should be-

fbxlw75.p Dec 4, 2003 1.2MB on OSX

When you add the plugin it should say 3 pligins added then they show up in your Generic dropdown on the Scene tab as -

Export to FBX
Import from FBX
Merge with FBX

Try downloading the installer again in case it got corrupted somehow. I just redownloaded the OSX installer posted at Kaydara's site and it installed fine for me.

Do you have an up to date Stuffit Expander? An older Expander may cause problems if Kaydara used a newer version of Stuffit.

You have to change the permission for the plugin, I had no access to it first, but after I changed that it loaded fine in LW.
