    Unhappy ACAD 06 defined Lights, Scenes, & Materials useable in ACAD 07?

    Since ACAD 07 has been completely re-designed in terms of 3D modeling & rendering, how can I import the legacy of pre ACAD 07 Solid Modeling rendering features that will render with the same defined Lights, Scenes, & Materials set up in ACAD 05, & 06 in ACAD 07?

    Question Re: ACAD 06 defined Lights, Scenes, & Materials useable in ACAD 07?

    If I use the new ACAD 07 commmands, CONVERTOLDLIGHTS and CONVERTOLDMATERIALS (noted in the Autodesk link Mike Perry replied with) in an ACAD 07 Application, will my old LIGHTS, SCENES, & MATERIALS still function as they did if I open my .dwg in an ACAD 05 or 06 Application? Could I go back & forth between versions? The link's description of backwards compatibilty was not clear to me.
    Also, can I use ACAD 05 & 06 defined SCENES in ACAD 07?

    After a "convert..." operation, I think it is unlikely that they will still work as before in older versions but, really, the only way to be sure is for you to try it.
