Good to know. I've only read the parts of the manual where I've been stuck. I had a "Blender for Dummies" book in my Amazon cart, but then took it out at the last minute. Probably still get it at some point for reading at the beach.
As for fur, rugs...since you do that occasionally as can be seen from images you posted, If you don´t apply that already?..I would suggest always just use quick fur(F3 and search for quick fur on newer blender versions)
Because you don´t have to go in to particle editor and choose stuff, and the material will already be setup for you..which it doesn´t if you manually just add particle emitter, then you would have to create new material and assign it...so Quick fur is better if you should decide to do rugs or fibers.
Yeah I did a rug with the Blender fur and it just picked up the material that was on the rug. Very nice and a lot less setup than with LW - except for the fact that you actually have to use Blender. I've really become comfortable with LW's shading system and Blenders just doesn't seem to stack up right now, so taking advantage of Blenders great rendering may not happen for me. I quit using Modo because of the Shader Tree - everything else in Modo is superior to LW fundamentally - but I went back to the kludge.
If there's Japanese, could it be the one at the bottom of this web page?
I've never tried this one. I didn't know if it used Maya as an intermediary.
I tried that plugin, but it doesnt want to load any lwo into blender 2.91..I made sure to export 2015 lwo too.
