Are there any third party programs that can import an animated 3D model exported from Blender and export to Collada DAE format? Using either Blender 2.49 or 2.5x to export the initial animated model, the animation can be a simple rigged scale or rotate, nothing complicated.
Blender can export FBX, which I believe supports animation.
So what is your target application that is doing the import of this Blender export?
It’s for a custom built engine using OpenGL API.
I’ve tried using Autodesk’s FBX Converter to do Blender > FBX > Collada, but the exported DAE files are incompatible (will look into it further if no alternatives are available). 3DS Max exports compatible animations using OpenCOLLADA, as I suspect would Maya, but I would prefer to use Blender if possible.
