I'm interested in importing my 3d models to warcraft 3 maps. This can be done using the warcraft 3 art tools plugins for 3ds max but I've been told that it requires a very specific version of 3ds max, v4-v5 so I'm told. I've heard of people using freeware programs to do this but why do that when I have lightwave? :D I'm wondering if anyone has any experience using Lightwave for making mdl's and could share with me what I need to know to make something like this happen. I'm really really interested in doing this, regardless of how hard or impossible it may be.

Here are a couple of options:

I use Ultimate Unwrap and it works well for many format conversions.

Edit:
I have these Greenbriar plugs as well and it helps with animation and maps for the 3dgamestudio format.
