Sorry to ask such a seemingly daft question, I'm not a newcomer to Lightwave but I am a modeling & texturing lightweight.

Can LW "bake" procedural textures to image maps (say UVs or something) so that I can use a model in another app? I understand about resolution limits etc, Vue can export it's own procedurals as textures I was wondering if I can do it the other way too.

Yes. Set up your UV"s and use the Surface Baking Camera.
