The Collada Import Fixer Layout script is a Lightwave 11 Python script that is run on a Collada file to read camera and light data. This script will read the camera X fov or Y fov and the corresponding fov animation, light color and spotlight angle with animations and ambient light value without animations. Reads material textures from the collada file.
works in LW2018 - except for spot lights
The Make Collada Spotlight Readable Layout script is a Lightwave 11 Python script that is run on a Collada file before import to add extra LW core based tags to spotlights. Lightwave 11 will not read spotlights in Collada files generated by other programs. This script adds some Lightwave Core extra tags so that Lightwave will recognize a spotlight and import it.
does not work in LW2018

Installation steps 1,2 and 3 can be skipped if Lightwave was installed with the Expand Python Runtime set to Yes. They can also be skipped for Lightwave 2015 and up installations. I think it expands the runtime without asking.
Alternate for steps 1 and 2 from a Newtek forums post :
Since Python 2.7.2 cannot load shared libraries from a Zip file, you must extract the Python library files found in "bin/python27.zip" to a folder called "bin/Lib". Once extracted, delete or rename "python27.zip", run LightWave, and Python should be able to locate and use all the shared libraries bundled within the "Lib/" folder (including "bin/Lib/pyexpat.pyd").
Fixed blue component of color animation and the spot light cone angle
