The importer supports basic geometry like n sided polygons and subpatches. Currently curves and nurbs are not imported and have to be freezed before import.

Of course multible uv, weight, morph, and color maps are also supported. So as a Lightwave user you can easily harvest the speed and workflow methods Blender offers in those areas, without using some obscure intermediate formats


A high amount of work has been invested to offer Camera import with pixel accurate
alignment. Wich finaly gives you the opertunity to actually use blenders features like hairs and combine it with lightwaves fast
