I can't seem to find the source for NextGen in the svn? Where is the source code held?
Is there a Max 2010 Version of the original FCollada based Collada Max?
I managed to recompile the latest code there to Max 2010, but it requires a lot of changes w/ AssetManagment, and an upgrade to vs 2008. How come Collada Max Next has less exported features supported? The FCollada based on seems to be more feature complete?
the source code of the NextGen plug-in is contained in the svn repository of the OpenCOLLADA sf project (https://sourceforge.net/projects/opencollada). It has already been ported to Max 2010 and does not require vs 2008 to build. vs 2005 works fine.
Which export features of the FCollada plug-in are you missing in the NextGen one? Please feel free to discuss them here in the open discussion. The export features of both plug-ins should be almost equal, except shader export, which is missing in NextGen.
UV Animations was the biggest one I noticed just off hand. Also it seems to be missing the option for relative paths, as well as XRefs in the export dialog.
Interesting, I read a post from 3ds max that said since max 2010 was compiled with vs 2008, it used the version 9 runtimes. Which they said all plugins for 2010 had to be compiled with those runtimes, which are only availble in vs 2008.
The 3ds Max SDK Programmer's Guide help file states that Max 2010 plugins using VS 2008 SP1. It's in the "What's New: 3ds Max 2010 SDK" topic in that help file.
All of the SDK samples and includes in the 2010 SDK are written/compiled against VS 2008 SP1.
Is support for the FCollada plugin ended? Is the next Gen now the main line?
The nextgen export doesn't have the relative path by default or it seems that way to me. I can't get my uv map image to load on any other computer because it's looking for my file path which doesn't exist. I am exporting from an obj to .dae with a png uv map. Then using the collada file in papervision to render the model in flash. Again the uv map will only load correctly in flash on my computer. If i try to run the same swf on any other computer a drive not found error pops up. Any thoughts? I am using ColladaMax 0.9.5.447 out of Max 2010.
