Lightwave obj to Maya
on Jan 22, 2009 at 2:47:21 pm

Having a little trouble getting an obj file from Lightwave to Maya. I've exported the file from Modeler using Export OBJ. When I import the file into Maya, nothing loads or I get an error message. I'm going through the import options and telling it File Type: OBJ. I can get obj files to load into Maya, just not the ones coming from Lightwave. This should work. What am I missing?

(I'm running a Quad-Core Macintosh)

HI

that's odd

try FBX or any other format

also you can open the OBJ in a text editor and check if there's any difference with other OBJ files

Here you go, I made a quick tutorial for you...for free. I had a similar problem knowing I migrated OBJ's with UV's before. Well here is a small basic run down covering small entities needed prior to your Maya integration from Lightwave.

Still cant view it... try downloading current Flash media player at Adobe.

I hope this helps!
