    When using the automatic LXO import from Modo, even with single meshes, Unity always imports a structure that includes a root node, the actual mesh node(s) and a afaik complete useless node called "Render".

    I wrote a postprocessor script to:
    - Remove the "Render" Node
    - Flatten the structure by copying the node called "Mesh" (Modo default name) into the root node
    - Deleting the "Mesh" node

    * at the moment, animations are automatically disabled *

    The script is available from github:
    https://github.com/thomasklokosch/UnityModoImporter

    It's my first asset processor script, so if you have anything to add or improve please fork away and send a pull request!
    Maybe this script is of some help to anyone, if at least for an intro to asset processing, it's really a great timesaver to write project specific import scripts.

    Cheers,
    Thomas
