importing into LW


(hannibar) #1

I recently got a copy of LightWave from a friend of mine. I want to import my blender models in it, but I can’t seem to find a way to get my models in it.

  1. Blender writes wrong dxf and vrml files. When trying to load them into LW, it gives an error saying that there is an error in the file.
  2. There are no scripts (as far as I know)
    that export to a LW7.0 object file.
  3. I’m working on XP, and most free 3d file conversion programs don’t work on it or don’t support a format that can be read by LW.

So what can I do?

thanks in advance

Someone told me to use VRML.
DXF didn’t work. It said it was imported but nothing showed up in Modler?

Anyway I would like to know how to do this too.

You got a free copy of lw from your friend. Did he also give you a free copy of publisher as well?

There is an OBJ Import/Export script somewhere, and I think LW can read that format.

I don’t have the link though.

Nah not really. He received his copy of maya, and gave me his copy of lightwave.
