    <accessor> - <param> - bug

    I think there is a bug in the collada specification or in blender.

    <param> collada specification:
    In <bind_material> and <accessor>
    The <param> element contains information of type xs:string, which represents the SID of an existing parameter.
    But <param> contains no SID after exporting a project to COLLADA. Example:
    Code :
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <COLLADA xmlns="" version="1.4.1">
          <author>Blender User</author>

    Re: <accessor> - <param> - bug

    The collada developers seems to ignore really everything. Bug regports per mail, bug reports per forum, other forum topics. Absolutely everything.

    You donīt care about the developers? So I wonīt further care about COLLADA. I have decided to stop working with COLLADA.

    To the COLLADA administrator: I want COLLADA to delete my account!

    Hello Friba77,
    It sounds like the bug you're experiencing is strictly an issue with the Blender exporter. I would suggest taking up the issue with the Blender developers.

    Now about COLLADA as a whole, development had been a bit slow, but there was a renewed interest at this year's GDC and solid progress since then with the Conformance Test Suite (CTS) to be open sourced and catalyst funding for OpenCOLLADA. See

    As a fellow Blender user I feel your pain. It will take some time, but these moves will mean better compatibility for everyone.

    If you still want to delete your account, send me a private message and I will do so.
