Sorry if this post is a duplicate, but the search function doesn’t work, thus I can’t seen if anyone has already done this request.
Many DCC include some version information into the <authoring_tool> tag of the COLLADA header. For example, ColladaMax exports a <authoring_tool>ColladaMax v3.04</authoring_tool> info.
Currently, I’m parsing manually this info to get the version of the DCC exporter in order to handle the export / extra modifications between two releases. But parsing the <authoring_tool> info is VERY inconvenient (need to updated this almost for each update of DCCs, as the format of this info may change beetween two exporter releases).
Thus, I have this simple feature request : could you add a <authoring_tool_version>x.y.z.w</authoring_tool_version> in the next version of COLLADA ?
