LightWave to Max and Bck! What a Trip! Help! 
By Baby_Face on Jun 18, 2002 01:27 AM
Hi,

Im now using lightwave for a project at work.  There isnt much time to get the project done and i have 3DSMax at home, not Lightwave.  Does anybody know of a reliable converter or whatever i need to 'move' files between the two, ie work on an object/scene at work on lightwave and then take it home and work on it in max??  A converter for Max 3 or 4 and lightwave 6.
If anyone could save me time and effort (cos i dont have any time) lookin for one, when i dont know what it is im looking for exactly, that would be cool  8)

Thnx :)

try deep eploration www.righthemisphere.com
its also a good tool for browse and preview your objects and scenes

for modelling you can use the *.3ds-format. it works on both, lightwave and 3ds max.
but it doesn´t work with texture- or animation informations.

if you use deep-exploration, be carefully with uv-textures and procedural maps.
I think they will be lost on the exchange-way

good luck

Polytrans is also very good for this purpose.

no no,

don't use any programs !

save your files as FBX ( get the plugin fromthe lightwave site )
import FBX file into 3dsmax

that's all
