    LW to Marvelous designer and back

    Can anyone point me to some good tuts on this?

    There seem to be tuts for Maya but I've not found any good ones for LW. Specifically for importing the animation from md into lightwave. I tried fbx but it came out static with no animation and all the uv's were a mess.

    I've got a bit further. Managed to import via Alembic.

    Is *.mdd not working for you?
    Their website states under 3D file compatibility: "Transfer data between other 3D software by using OBJ, FBX, Alembic, Maya Cache, PC2, LXO and MDD file formats."

    Not tried mdd yet but Alembic seems to be working OK so far. Just need to learn more about that program now to get good results in Lightwave.

    Does MD export MDD?

    Edit: Never mind.
