Technical preview of the next generation COLLADA exporters for Maya and 3ds Max

COLLADA defines an XML-based schema to make it easy to transport 3D assets between applications - enabling diverse DCC and 3D processing tools to be combined into a production pipeline.

ColladaMax and ColladaMaya are plug-ins for 3ds Max and Maya applications that export and import COLLADA documents.

The next generation plug-ins now available for testing offer higher performance data export. In contrast to the existing COLLADA exporters, these new plug-ins do not store the COLLADA document into an intermediate data model but write it directly to file. This leads to a dramatic reduction of memory consumption and to much better performance.

If you find any bugs or experience any problem please write a bug report on the source forge bug tracker.
