I am trying to import a .dae collada file that contains external references in the form of:
<visual_scene id="Scene" name="Scene"> <instance_node url="./trees.dae#appletree-0" /> </visual_scene>
The referenced file lives in the same directory as the referring file. When I import the .dae I see no errors on the console. Yet, no new geometry shows up in blender.
Are external references broken for Blender as they seem to be for many Collada readers?
I tried with Blender version 2.76b
