Adding to the extensions directory


Instructions for adding your product's COLLADA extensions to the extension directory on this wiki:
  • These instructions use the following variable names:
    • yourcompanyname (preferably simplified/common version; for example, "Sony", not "Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc."). Can be multiple words.
    • yourproductname. Can be multiple words.
    • profilename used in profile name="..." (often--but not always-the product name)
    • Details about your <technique profile="..."> and <extra><technique profile=..."> extensions


You'll do the following:

Detailed instructions:

  1. In List of extensions by company, add a table row using this text (left-justified) (if you have extensions for camera and image) :
         |- valign="top"
    | [[yourcompanyname yourproductname extensions]] || profilename ||
  2. Click the company/product link you just created, add this text (left-justified) to the article, and save it (assuming you provide <camera> and <image> extensions):
    mycompanyname provides extensions for the following elements :
    * [[camera yourproductname extension]]
    * [[image yourproductname extension]]
  3. Click each of those element-based links to create separate articles for each extension:
    • Put the following at the top of each article (left-justified):
    | company = yourcompanyname
    | product = yourproductname }}
  4. In List of extensions by profile name, add one table row with your info (see #Example of Extensions by profile name).
  5. In List of extensions by element, add a table row for each element that you support (using the same element-based links as above). (See #Example of Extensions by element.)


For example:

  • a company named "My Company"
  • product named "My Product"
  • profile="mp"
  • with extensions for <image> and <camera>
