New question same theme.... can you import lightwave to maya? I love modeling polgygons in lightwave....soooooo easy..... maya????? great NURBS....
just a question... I know I can change geometry with deep3d..(3d exploration I think it was called before)....But if I don't have to buy another program for exporting geometry I would be a very happy camper...

Another option is to use the Filmbox format from Kaydara. The FBX format allows scene conversions from/to most of the major 3D packages. This is what I use to move files between Max and Maya.

Hi,

I use the 'obj' format to import and export seamlessly between Maya, Lightwave and softimage.
