Hi Carnera,

There are two possibilities here:

1) You can export the animation from your biped to FBX, then import that into Lightwave. What you will get in Lightwave is a skeleton, with animation on the bones.

2) You can export your biped animation to FBX, open that up in Motionbuilder, retarget the animation onto a character from Lightwave, then save that and import it into Lightwave.

Either way, the FBX plugins are available at for download. :thumbsup:
