First, if you are taking the LW -> MB -> LW route, "merge", not import.

If that still doesn't work, you need to folow these steps:

- when prepping to go back to LW, in MB, select your scene root, then right click and select branches.
- plot animation
- while still selected, go file>save selected to new fbx file.
- Merge back to LW.

I would think the same process would work for Maya, unless it's a blend shape issue...

did you plot the animation on the face before saving from MB?

CMan, if Levitateme is selecting the scene root and selcting all branches before plotting, that should include face animation.

It does for me...

Ok, 'cause I had trouble one time and did it separately to get it to work.

The VTM you probably want is 1-6, "Exporting from Maya" or 4-2, "Maya Blenshapes". :)
