    3dsmax 1.3 collada exporter material issues

    Hello,

    We are having some troubles with some 3dsmax7 exported files with the 1.3 Collada exporter. We have seen many IMAGE entries with the same ID, while the Collada specification says that it must be unique. But this is not the worst thing, many of the IMAGE entries with the same ID have different sources, so it is impossible derreference the correct texture filenames. Also, there are some IMAGE duplicated entries. Here we post an example (sorry for the long post)

    Are we wrong about our Collada's spec interpretation, or this is effectively an error in the max's exporter?

    Thanks.


    Code :
    - <library type="IMAGE">
      <image id="Map__592" name="Map__59" source="./Catedral%20Salamanca/SAL-mapas/Roof03.jpg" />

    Hey Jacobo,

    This is indeed an issue with the COLLADA 1.3 exporter. We've since fixed it for the upcoming COLLADA 1.4 tools for 3dsmax.

    Sincerely,

    Is there any information about when the 3dsmax Collada exporter will be fully functional? We are going to start a large project (an online engine with about 12 scenes (~2-3 millions of triangles per scene) and complex materials) and we need to know if we can choose Collada for this job, or if the exporter is in experimental stage yet. Also it would be nice to know if there will be an effective way to export 3dsmax complex materials, not only textures images and ambient-diffuse-etc parameters.

    Many thanks,
    Jacobo
