From there, remember to look at all the suggestions in the other thread, two info nodes subtracted ought to get you what you want. Variants could be extracted from the thread.

Will it be possible soon to have lightwave surface be translated in to octane values?
I think its a huge timesaver. One way it could be done is to follow what the old lightwave to octane standalone did via obj format. The obj file just inherited some values from the lwo file so that octane standalone could translate it inside.
There might not be exact or matching parameters for lw and octane but the most common once like diffuse, spec, transp, color could probably be translated into octane plugin.

It is a lot of work for a very limited set of supported features ... anyway I am going to work something about this issue for Octane 2.0
