    Everything exports except what I need...

    So this is a total mess that I'm hoping someone may have some advice on...
    I have a rigged model with blend shapes attached to it that I'm trying to export with what I believe is the latest Collada version. (Downloaded it about a 2 weeks ago) I have control curves directing the movements of my joints, and apparently it's the problem, though I have no idea why, nor how to fix it. Pardon my frustration please ^_^

    So here's the error log of my export:
    select -r polySurface100 ;
    // Error: A container or objects from a single container must be selected. //
    fileOptions "ExportAll" "projectViewer ExportAll";
    file -op "bakeTransforms=1;relativePaths=0;copyTextures=0;b akeLighting=0;exportTriangles=1;isSampling=0;curve ConstrainSampling=0;removeStaticCurves=1;exportPol ygonMeshes=1;exportLights=0;exportCameras=0;export JointsAndSkin=1;exportAnimations=1;exportInvisible Nodes=0;exportDefaultCameras=0;exportTexCoords=1;e xportNormals=1;exportNormalsPerVertex=1;exportVert exColors=1;exportVertexColorsPerVertex=1;exportXRe fs=1;dereferenceXRefs=1;exportCameraAsLookat=0;cam eraXFov=0;cameraYFov=1;" -typ "COLLADA nextgen exporter" -pr -ea "C:/Documents and Settings/jamo/Desktop/cassiemodel/cassiecollada/one";

    That last line cracks me up.




    And Just for fun, here's my error log of when I try to import the exported scene. At the end of the import error log I swear it's making fun of me.

    So when all this is done, I end up with a scene that contains the rig, the character's eyeballs, the character's gun, and the character's multiple blend shape duplicates. The ONLY thing missing is the character's base mesh. Which of course is the only part that I care about. I'm not program-literate when it comes to understanding error text, so any layman's terms advice someone could shoot my way would be really helpful. I tried to post this on Feeling Software's website, but I can't find the new post button. Really funny, but also really, really stupid.


    thanks for the help!

    Re: Everything exports except what I need...

    faustie,

    first of all: this is the wrong forum. Why do you want to post your problems in a completely different site than were you have downloaded your original plugin? Furthermore Feeling Software is not the maintainer of the "NextGen" Plugins as stated at sf.net/projects/colladamaya. What is not understandable with the error message
    Error: Export of spline not supported
    Error: Export of constraints not supported
    I could rearrange the words but the content would stay the same: no support for constraints and splines. Dont expect something that had errors while exporting to import back again without any loss of information. If you just want to export and import back again into maya why not using ".ma" or ".mb" files?

    Re: Everything exports except what I need...

    well alrighty, word order non-withstanding, please allow me to clarify.

    1. do you have any idea why constraints are now not exporting? I've used the same type of constraints (orient, parent, and aim) on several models in the past and Collada has exported them just fine.

    2. I tried to export this model with Collada and the Collada next gen exporter, and both versions of the plug in fail.

    3. I'm sorry if this is not the place to go when looking for help, but I was under the impression by looking at the other posts in this forum that this was exactly what it was for. As I mentioned in my post, I also tried posting on Feeling Software's forum, but was unable to. Past that, if you know of a forum where this question might better be answered, I'll post this there as well.

    4. I'm not importing and exporting the file as a .dae for use in Maya, I'm doing it to try and better understand what the problem is, as I also mentioned in my post. I was hoping that someone smarter than myself might be able to see something awry in the import log that maybe isn't in the export log, and could glean some information from it.

    Anyone else with further advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I won't hold it against you.

    If you can report a bug at sourceforge (see sticky posts in this forum for project links) and attach your test content then the Maya plug-in developers like Sebastian can directly work to debug and solve your problem use-case.

    COLLADA does not support constraints. There was some discussion going on and someone wanted to champion this topic but hopefully Mark can tell you more about this. To export your constraints (at least in the animation) create a parentConstrain and bake it. Make sure to save and restore the original Maya file after exporting to COLLADA as you probably want to keep your constraint information.
