Has anyone purchased the .99 cents objects from modelup.com and brought them into Lightwave?

I bought several in .obj format. I got the 'error reading' error, so I loaded the objects into Accutrans. The objects load in Accutrans but I can't seem to export with any uv data intact.

Is there a better format that I should use to purchase the objects from modelup.com?

Any help appreciated.

Thanks.

Did the OBJ file come with an MTL file. The information for the texture file names is in the MTL file.

If there is no MTL file or AccuTrans can not read the texture file it will display a default texture on the object if the "Viewer -> Use Default Texture" menu item is checked.

For UV coordinates to be written to the LWO file, the "UV" check box must be checked in the "Save Object With Options" dialog box and a texture file name must be assigned to the layer.

Thanks Wayne! Much appreciated.

I was expecting an .mtl file to come with the objects but they don't seem to include one.
