Maxon Ships Enhanced BodyPaint 3D Plugin for LightWave

Plugin free for BodyPaint, LightWave users By Dave Nagel
Maxon Computer has released an enhanced version of its BodyPaint 3D Exchange plugin for NewTek's 3D modeling and animation package LightWave. Maxon says the new version allows users to add surface detail to their 3D models more easily. It also includes support for both Mac OS 9 and OS X and LightWave 6.5b and 7b.

The BodyPaint 3D <-> LightWave Exchange plugin, according to Maxon, "allows seamless transfer of all relevant model and texture data between LightWave and BodyPaint 3D." The plugin allows the user to transfer a model from Modeler directly into BodyPaint 3D, which then imports the model with UV tags.

The BodyPaint Exchange plugin is free for users of BodyPaint 3D and LightWave. It's downloadable from
