Does anyone know if it is possible to import lighting data from a producer of lightsources (ieg. ERCO, Germany) into Lightwave? The standardized format for that ist .ies

Quote from the Producer (www.erco.com):

IES data

The IES data format is an internationally accepted data format used for describing the light distribution of luminaires. It can be used in numerous lighting design, calculation and simulation programs. The data is provided as a complete archive; however, a specific selection according to the technical environment and individual product range is also possible.

If you come to think of what you could do with that technology.........
