For illustrator I think theres either a plug in that you have to enable or it just imports them direct from the.ai file, the old F1 with a search for .ai might help you out.
As for Vue unis just got a copy so been having a bit of a play, as for the maya camera into it not too sure. I saw some great tutorials on it using lightwave, the process will probably be the same to be honest, but I dont think theres a plug in available for maya 8.5 as of yet.
Heres the links to the tutorials
does this count for a heaven ticket???
