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.

FBX files are an open 3D file format developed by Autodesk for use with their Maya and 3Ds Max applications. An FBX file may contain any number of 3D objects, their associated geometry, materials, textures, animations, and more, all within a single convenient package.

The content of an FBX file is a mix of binary and ASCII text, producing a format that is both human-readable and compact. Due to their compact size, ease of use, and widespread support, FBX files are a popular choice for creating 3D animations and are also a staple in the videogame development scene.

The development of the FBX format continues to this day, with new features being included in each release. Along with being used within Autodesk's own editing solutions, FBX files can also be opened and edited in other popular 3D modelling applications, such as Blender.

FBX Converter Capabilities

Our 3D conversion tool does not support color/material information in FBX files so your file will not contain any color information.

Information for converting from LWO to FBX

Your LWO file will be converted to a FBX file using our unified 3D model and mesh conversion tool. Our LWO 3D tool performs accurate conversions of 3D elements such as vertices, faces, normals and relevant material information. Our tool will not attempt to transfer any color information if present in your LWO file, your final 3D model will contain geometry data only.
