Default 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.

Thanks.

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.
