Super Collada problems
show user profile  jenna
Hello all. Ive been desperatley trying to figure out how to set up the collada plugin for 3ds max 9 64bit, so I could import from googles '3D Warehouse'. I went to and github to download, but on instillation it said

Warning : This plug-in is compiled for autodesk 3ds max 2009, 2008, 9.0, 8.0 and 7.0. Neither were detected. You can still install the source code and documentation, and copy the plug in files manually.

I don't understand this because I HAVE FREAKING 3ds MAX 9... I went ahead with the rest of the install, but nothing changed in max- i don'tknow what plug in files they're talking about to do this manually.

I also came across this post on another site

in download folder txt file instructions he said to just copy the included file ColladaMax.dle to 3d Max 2008/9 plugin folder

But this guy is using 2009. How do I get my hands on 3ds max 9 64 version dle?

Thank you in advance

Does anyone know how get that set up? I know that when it's installed correctly that there should be an Google Warehouse' option in max's file menu.

If you're just trying to import Collada (.dae) files from the Google Warehouse, you need ColladaMax, I've never heard of Super Collada.

ColladaMax isn't updated very often, so my brother made some changes to it so I could run it on Max 2011, and also updated the Max 9 version. You can try it and see if it works, just drop the .dle file into your C:\Program Files\Autodesk\3ds Max 9\plugins folder. It adds the .dae import option, it does not add a Google Warehouse option in any of the menus.

The only one I've heard of (besides the standard) is open collada. It works well.
