Export Nuke .chan files from LightWave

Although Nuke can read FBX files, it’s something reassuring about open text file formats, so I have created an LScript that creates a chan file from the selected item in LightWave.

    How about a LS that reads a ,chan file from nuke and applies it to the camera in Lightwave? Please… with a scale multiplier… Thanks…

  3. Yay! Importing .chan files into Lightwave without any mumbo jumbo will make my life easier 🙂

    Thanks bro, this is great news, especially with Nuke 6, the tracker is excellent!

    Does the CHAN file format support transferring a camera’s focal length? For example if I were exporting a LW camera to Nuke via CHAN file and my camera had an animated focal length?

      I believe it does, but not using the same FOV definition as LW, I think. I haven’t been using Nuke in a while so I need to look it up again.
