Lightwave Camera/ Messiah Camera

I can't seem to get the camera from one program to the other. When I add the plugin motion modifier to the Lightwave camera a null object appears in Messiah, but moving it doesn't update the Lightwave camera.

When I select the Messiah camera and hit F12 it says it can't export the object to Lightwave. Any thoughts?

when you add Xform to the camera in Lightwave, the Null that appears in Messiah should be parented to the Messiah camera.

you should think of objects and items in messiah as potential Containers for Nulls from LW. that is, any object you Xform From LW can be parented to Messiah Items.

its one good way to get rigid objects attached to your mesh, heirarchical lights, and sasquatch fur to move dynamically to a messiah Model within LW, and Maya.

another way:

go to the customize tab und use "motion dump"........
press freeze motion and use "corrdinates world".....
selcet a filename--> generate motion.....
now you can load the motion for a camera in lightwave.........
