#110 Dae Exporter cannot deal with spaces in files ort path names

Release 4.0
Assimp lib (91)
Kim Kulling


I have a .dae file which contains reference to a texture called "file://C:\My Folder\diffuse.png". When i import the file with Assimp, it works fine, and when i export it (also to .dae), the path is changed to "C%3a\My%20Folder\diffuse.png".

The issue is, if i try to re-import this new .dae file into Assimp, there is an error because the texture cannot be found. The error doesn't occur if there is no spaces in the texture path. Is there a way to make it work, or is this a know issue ? The only way i found to get around this is to post-process the file and change back every "%20" to " ".

Thanks in advance.


ps: by the way, this is a great lib !
