I installed the SoftImage Collada plugins available here. I followed the instructions specified in the manual and I see the new Collada import/export options, but when I attempt to export the scene to Collada (even an empty scene), no file is created.
I get the following in the little log area in the bottom left, but I don't think it provides any useful info:
ExportCollada("c:\\default.xml", 0, false, 2, 1, false, 0.01);
I don't think the double backslash in the file name is the problem. The importer has pretty much the same issues. I can't get it to open a Collada document.
Any ideas? Tomorrow I might try to compile the plugin and debug to see what's wrong.
Also I'll email the SoftImage guy that writes the Collada plugin... have to run now.
