Can Lightwave import models from Maya, 3D Studio Max, etc?

Hey Joebob.
No other software but MAX can read MAX- files this is because not the actualyl geoemtry is saved in max- files but the changes made to it. So you will need MAX to read the files.
LW can read 3ds (can be exported from MAX) and obj (can eb exported from MAYA)- files though.
Hope that helps.

Don't forget to turn on OBJ export plug-in in plug-in manager in Maya. It doesn't load by default, so you have to add it.
