Does anyone know of any converters for MAC (OS9/OSX) that can convert MAX objects to LWO's?

I buy 3D World and sometimes the CD includes MAX objects that i can never use.

You have to have Max installed to convert a .max file even if you use another app, since Max won't run on Macintosh there is no way to convert it as far as I know.

LightWave will import 3ds .obj files, but there are things that have to be done on the 3DS end to make the LW loader work correctly. (i.e.: exploded, and save all entities, and even then surfaces etc don't come through, and the models usually require a lot of tweaking.) So if they won't load right into LightWave you are out of luck as far as I know.
