ColladaMax NextGen

12 August 2008

First release of the next generation plug-in offering higher performance data export. In contrast to the existing COLLADA exporters for Max, this new plug-in does not store the COLLADA document into an intermediate data model but writes it directly to file. This leads to a dramatic reduction of memory consumption and to much better performance.
