The thing is that im working now for a guy that works in LW so i need an aplication that alow me to export all the data in my max file to LW, because if i even try to just export the geometry to a 3ds file and then he opens it in LW there are a lot of problems.

Which is a good ap. for this, i supose it could hold the transfer of the textures, lights ect. but at least i would love to send him the geometry in good contitions since im mostly modeling for him.

Thanks

I would probably try the kaydara fbx- format. There are free plugins for Max and LW.
The other way that works pretty well here )at least the other way round) is using the WaveFront- object- format .obj (LW ships with I/O for obj, I think for MAX you will need a plugin)

There is a *.obj exporter script for max, you can find it over here.

I'll second the OBJ format. It works a lot better than 3DS.

I use it in conjunction with Deep Exploration.
