Lightwave Import to Maya
Does anyone know of any importers to get LWO files into Maya without having to buy PolyTrans or somthing like that?

Hey Danny

What am I looking for on that site? I couldn't foind a Maya LWO plug-in. The FBX Converter doesn't seem to support LWO.

You want to look for the FBX plugin.

You can't use LWO files directly. Instead, you can use FBX files as an intermediate format to get data from LightWave to Maya. From LightWave, export to FBX, then import that FBX file in Maya.

No good. I don't have Lightwave, I just have the files in LWO. Thanks anyway.

Any other sugguestions?

You can use Blender, which is free, to import the LWO files and then export them to obj. In Blender you must load the plug in for that.
