    I have a friend who has Lightwave. I only have Blender, but I wanted to make something for him for his birthday. Is it possible to convert a .blend to a... whatever extension it is that LW uses? ?[face_plain]

    Note: I have looked at Google and got a few results, but no answer.

    What formats can Blender export to?

    Well, as far as I know, as .blend. That's it... There may be some kind of plugin that allows it to save to other types. I'll have to check that out.

    Most programs don't export directly to LWO (except for conversion programs like Deep Exploration, but that won't read Blender files), but if there's a plugin that will export it to a generic format like DXF, OBJ, or 3DS, LW will be able to import it.
