Can you import a .max file into lightwave? I have 7.5 and 8. Need to know as soon as possible.

Thanks

Nope, no program other than MAX can import MAX files. You need to export it from there to something LW can use like 3DS or OBJ.

You can't directly import a .max object into Lightwave. However, if you export your object as .OBJ from 3D Max you can then import THAT into LW.

The other way would be to use FBX [search on www.flay.com for a link] for import/export and use that. There are plugins for almost all major 3D aps for this format. It can also handle scene animation data.

Hope this helps.
