Colladian Explosion

Much like the cambrian explosion that saw “life” moving in all sorts of new directions .. a colladian explosion seems to be going on now as the “open format” (well maybe) is being utlized by many web3d and virtual worlds platforms as the defacto “import” format for 3d datasets from third party 3d apps. It’s a good thing, but as many will find out- soon enough- as they actually “use” the media, rather than just blog about it;) – not all collada files are built alike, and just like X3D or VRML “open standards” before it, each application will want to “eat only it’s own” flavor much of the time. Nothing changes, just the names in the tech press.;)
