Using URIs in COLLADA
URIs in COLLADA must be of the correct standard format to work correctly.
A common mistake is to pass a Windows or Linux file path to the
DAE::save methods. Like COLLADA itself, the DOM uses URIs exclusively to reference resources or files. A file path needs to be converted to a file scheme URI before being passed to the COLLADA DOM. Below are some examples of converting a file path to a URI.
Example Description File Path URI Windows absolute path C:\folder\file.dae file:///C:/folder/file.dae Windows relative path ..\folder\file.dae ../folder/file.dae UNC path \\remoteMachine\folder\file.dae file://///remoteMachine/folder/file.dae Linux absolute path /folder/file.dae file:///folder/file.dae Linux relative path ../folder/file.dae ../folder/file.dae
