1.5.0 not backward compatible?

Dear all,

I have just compiled Collada DOM 1.5.0 sample project for Visual Studio 2008.

When I try to load Collada 1.4.1 .dae file exported from Softimage 2010, I ten an erro message sayint that improper version was attempted to be downloaded to my Collada DOM 1.5.0.

Does that mean, that v. 1.5.0 is not backward compatible with previous versions?

Thank yoj,

Yes that’s right. The COLLADA 1.5 schema defines a different XML Namespace. If you want to build a tool that can read and write 1.4 and 1.5 documents at the same time then I suggest looking at OpenCOLLADA.

Dear Marcus,

Thank you for your repply.

With regards,
