Importing lights from Lightwave

Is there a way to export a light rig from Lightwave and bring it into XSI?
  01 January 2009
As Lightwave is not supported with Crosswalk, you're best bet would be FBX if you want to keep it within the basic import/export capabilities.
Other than that I'm afraid you'll have to start using converters, like Polytrans or alike to move data around.

Is it a special rig you want to move over? Maybe it is quickly rebuild in XSI?

FBX or collada

the other thing in case that didn't work,
you will have to do it manually. =(

this will depend on how many light you have on your scene.

a LW scene is a text file, it shouldn't be too hard to make a script to parse a .lws and create lights in a xsi scene from that...
