New version of the NextGen COLLADA Exporters and Importers for 3ds Max and Maya are available.
Major changes include
- import functionality for Max and Maya
- support for 3ds Max 2010
- a Linux x64 version for Maya 2009
- many, many bug fixes
This projects has been forked into two seperate branches: The FCOLLADA based (older) one
at http://sf.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=136478&package_id=265868 and the new plugins called "NextGen" at
In contrast to the existing COLLADA exporters for Max and Maya, this new plug-ins do not store the COLLADA document into an intermediate
data model but are writing it directly to a file. This leads to a dramatic reduction of memory consumption and to much better performance.
Be adviced that these "NextGen" plugins are still lacking COLLADA import functionality and are not thoroughly tested yet. The subversion
repository already hosts the current code that enables import capabilities for Max and Maya.
