View Full Version : Maya2LW Questions...

07 July 2003, 07:14 AM
I've been experimenting with this plugin ( with some of my work. I haven't had too much trouble exporting from Maya, but once I load it into LW, the playback is SO slow. I'm curious if anyone else has had this problem and if anyone has had any meaning full success with it?

That plugin is good and it does work, but it is very slow. It would have been much better if that plugin generated native .mdd files.

Try this: Getting Animation from Maya to Lightwave Tutorial (

It might help you.

I have used it successfully in the past, but it can create massive .mdd files.

I wonder how the Kaydara FBX plugin works without motionbuilder in the loop.

you might try that.

That might just work... and the good thing is those exporters/importers are free...
