When I try to export this item as a collada, nothing exports. It will sometimes go through with the export (when I export as collada - default) but nothing is actually in the file. When I try to export as collada - avastar I get : 'Nothing to export' and the option to export 'Selection only' is grayed out.

I noticed that when the item is selected, in the top bar it says Objects : 0/7 which I assume means its not registering the object even though its physically there.

Any suggestions?

  • $\begingroup$ I've tried exporting as collada and it worked, and then imported the exported one and it worked as well. $\endgroup$ – Tak Feb 28 '17 at 3:26
  • $\begingroup$ I even tried exporting with a newer version of Blender - no success. It may be because of the Avastar addon? $\endgroup$ – goldspiral Feb 28 '17 at 4:41
  • $\begingroup$ Not sure, Do you want me to send you the exported collada .dae model? $\endgroup$ – Tak Feb 28 '17 at 4:47

I identified that there is an issue when I import a collada, and then save the file as .blend. When I reopen the .blend file, the collada object is not editable like shown above. How to fix it, I'm still not sure. I had to delete the object and re-import the collada, losing my rigging and uvs.
