Hi all,

I've been working the past several months on a converter from .an8 to .dae. I call it Anim8or Transl8or. The main reason is that my 3D artist prefers to use Anim8or, but .an8 files are not easy to import into other programs (like 3DS Max and Blender). I have self-tested the converter and am pretty satisfied with my progress. I think it is fairly robust. It turned out to be a lot more work than I originally planned, however!

Let me know what you think. You can download the latest version here: I get into a lot of detail about the limitations and how to use the program here: Support for the Collada format in even major software is a lot worse than I original expected. I think I've found workarounds for most of the issues, but there is still plenty to be done. It would be cool if Collada support could be built into Anim8or eventually. I think my source code should be readable enough to use as an example of how it can be done.
