Hi all,
I'm a bit disapointed that there is still no UVmap export and editor in LW9.3.
Export as EPS doesn't even work for me, I have photoshop 6 and it cannot parse the EPS file produced by lightwave.
So I have to rely to the old printscreen trick, which is dependant on the screen resolution. I hate that, its like sticking a calc paper on my monitor to copy the UV map.

I would have expected a complete solution within lightwave to create and edit images for UV map in real time. A basic paint editor would be enough.

Use UVImaginator. It will do everything you want. It's what I use.

Try that to output UVs in an image format. I use it all the time.

thanks guys, I got the software and pluged it in my lW utilities, but I am still frustated that I have to rely on a third party utility (free luckily for me) to make this damn UV thing work.

As long as its available and you can get it done, I don't see that it much matters.
