Thanks for a great post - been using PC2 for a while now.

you may find this useful too - for camera transfers:

"Camera Import Export tool. This script makes possible camera transfer between MAYA MAX and LIGHTWAVE. Suported properties are Position, Orientation, Lens, Render W/H, FilmBack, Aspect ratios. Final result is 100% match in render image. "
