exporting fbx, missing animation

I've been animating a simple character in Mobu (7.5 & 2009). When I import that ploted animation into a package like Lightwave 8.5, I end up losing about the last quarter of animation. For example: If I animate a 100 frame sequence, I only get about 80 frames of that in Lightwave.

And yes, I've expanded the time line in LW to match what was animated in Mobu.

Is this a Motion Builder, FBX or Lightwave issue?
Anyone ever experience this before?
Anyone found a working fix?

Thanks in advance

Okay, it looks like there is a solution.
It would seem that the default FBX save feature in Motion Builder is set to FBX ASCII.
If you switch that to FBX Binary... then it seem to work.

Hope that helps somebody.
