View Full Version : maya/lightwave conversion

09 September 2002, 04:50 AM

Didn't someone recently post some plugs/scripts for Maya/LW conversion...someone not related to the beaver project? I've looked all over at the usual sources to no avail. I'd appreciate any info.

This link is what I was looking for but it's Maya --> LW.

My problem is that I can export a model from LW as an .obj and open it fine in Maya. However, if I save the scene in Maya and try to open it again I get an error mentioning data loss. Normal, non-imported geom. in scenes work fine. Anyone have any clues? I basically want to model in LW and texture, etc. in Maya.

Just downloaded the Deep Exploration Demo. I didn't realize that it was enabled for 30 days. Worked like a charm.

Are you using LW7.5?
In 7.5 the OBJ exporter dont work for me. What I did to solve that was to use the old 6.5 (or 7 maybe) obj exporter plug instead.

OBJ exporter works fine here. I frequently take textured geometry from Maya-LW and back again. Not one problem.
