Adding to the extensions directory
Instructions for adding your product's COLLADA extensions to the extension directory on this wiki:
  1. You'll need:
    • Company name (preferably simplified/common version; for example, "Sony", not "Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc.")
    • Product name
    • Name used in profile name="..." (often--but not always-the product name?)
    • Details about your <technique profile="..."> and <extra><technique profile=..."> extensions
    For example, a company named "My Company", product named "My Product", profile "mp", with extensions for <image> and <camera>.
  2. In List of extensions by company, add a table row with this info:
Link (by company) Profile= name Elements extended
My Company My Product extensions mp
  • <camera>
  • <image>
  1. Click your new "companyname productname extensions" link to create an article with that name:
    • Add to the article the following text (substituting your own company and product name):
         {{extensions}}
    My Company provides extensions for the following elements:
    * [[camera My Product extension]]
    * [[image My Product extension]]
  2. Add rows to the following tables (see "What goes into the table rows," below):
  3. Click your new link to create your article. Tips:
{{extensions
 | company = yourcompanyname
 | product = productname }}

What goes into the table rows

  • In the company column, insert a link for your company of the format "companyname productname extensions"; for example:
    Softimage XSI extensions
  • In the "Profile names" column, put the name specified in <technique profile="yourprofilename">; for example:
    XSI
  • In the third column, add the list of elements for which you provide extensions.
