Camera Import Export tool. This script makes possible camera transfer between MAYA MAX and LIGHTWAVE.  Suported properties are Position, Orientation, Lens, Render W/H, FilmBack, Aspect ratios. Final result is 100% match in render image. Camera is with preserved  time and mesurment UNITS, Corect Up axis.

Now The final release is done (i hope). I did 2 versions of the script, furst is constrain based transfer (motion blur and gimble lock issue), other version is rotation based. Both do the same.

Additional Info: 

Just run the script for desired software. It is recomended to use empty scene for transfers, becouse import function will match FPS , UNITS and RENDER SETTING of source scene. So if you export 24fps animation import module will change target scene fps to 24. It can afect existing animations or expressions based on time.

Max And Maya Bug Fixed:  Try to change camera name in TXT if you have problems with maya, see info.txt

PLEASE REPORT BUGS

Version Requirement: 
Should work with 5 and up, tested with MAYA 8.5, LIGHTWAVE 9.0, MAX 9.0
Other Software Required: 
For Constrained LW version see included plugin in rar.

Hey

Well this is nice dig but still !

Would you mind sharing the equation of exproting FOV from

Max To Maya
Maya To Max

And if you know.. Maya to Vred, Vred to Maya, Vred to Max, Max to Vred :- )

Any of them would be epic !
