LWO file format information

Full NameLightWave Object File
Type3D Model
Mime Typeapplication/octet-stream

A LWO file, short for LightWave Object file, is a proprietary 3D model format primarily associated with NewTek's LightWave 3D software. It serves as a container for storing intricate 3D models, which can encompass objects, scenes, and animations. The LWO file format efficiently represents geometric data, surface textures, shading, and animation keyframes, making it ideal for complex 3D visualizations.

Within a LWO file, the geometric data is organized into polygons or vertices, describing the shape and structure of the 3D model. Additionally, the file stores surface attributes, such as textures, colors, transparency, and specularity, defining the appearance of the model's surfaces. The format also supports various surface mapping techniques like UV mapping, enabling precise placement of textures on the 3D object.

Furthermore, LWO files can encompass animation data, making them versatile for use in animated projects. Animation keyframes, skeletal rigging information, and morph targets can be included in the file, facilitating smooth and dynamic movements of the 3D model within the software. While LWO was initially designed for LightWave 3D, some other 3D software may also support importing or exporting LWO files, allowing for cross-platform compatibility and facilitating collaboration between different software applications in the 3D graphics workflow.

LWO Converter Capabilities

Currently our LWO converter can only convert from LWO files, our developers are working to allow converting to LWO files in future versions of our tools.Our LWO 3D Model/Mesh tool does not support any color material data contained within LWO files so the converted file will not contain any color information.

Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate is the 3D file conversion?

Our LWO conversion tool can convert most 3D geometry including mesh vertices and faces with no loss of detail. Any color materials contained within the 3D model file will be converted where possible.

Are textures supported in the LWO conversion?

No, due to the different methods of assigning textures to a 3D model textures are not currently supported. If your LWO model contains textures or references to external texture files, these will be ignored.

Is it free to use the LWO conversion tools?

Yes! Our LWO conversion tools are 100% free to use.

Are there any LWO conversion usage limits?

No, you can convert as many files as you wish. We do not impose any conversion limits on our LWO conversion tools.

How long does it take to convert my LWO?

We aim to process all LWO conversions as quickly as possible, this usually takes around 5 seconds however this can be longer for certain files and significantly longer for some larger file formats, so please be patient.

What does the LWO conversion process involve?

Once your LWO file has been uploaded and we know the file format you wish to convert it to our bespoke conversion software will convert your LWO and make it available for you to download with a unique download Url.

Is it safe to convert my LWO on FabConvert.com?

Yes, of course it is! Your LWO, once converted is deleted 1 hour after upload and the download link will expire after this time.

Can I convert my LWO on Linux, Android, iOS or Mac OS?

Yes! Our LWO conversion tools will run on any system with a modern web browser.

Is there any support for me when using the LWO tool?

If you are having difficulty converting your LWO you can contact us and we will try to help where possible.
