Though still in beta, the beaver project now has a mac version (even though it doesn't say so on the site thebeaverproject.com yet).

There are rumors that pointoven will also have a mac version.

I have both, and though the beaver project was the more pricey one, I strongly prefer it over PO.

You can sometimes transfer things via the FBX file format tho I couldn't find the exporter in the UB version of 9.3. I was able to use the exporter in the CFM version.

LW> Export FBX
Maya> Import FBX

Don't know where to download it, so I just dug it out of my hard drive - it is for LW8.0, that's the last time it was released I believe, should still work
