I am having trouble exporting COLLADA files. I made all the textures uV's and froze the model prior to export. But the COLLADA file doesn't display any of the textures.
I'm on a Mac, but that shouldn't have any effect.

I'm not sure if this is helpful but I've just been trying to export COLLADA files for a client.
They have reported that the geometry is fine but that file path for the UV & texture maps are specific to my machine, so the imported file does not show them correctly.
I have supplied the correct maps but have no idea how to reassign the file paths withing the .DAE file. There are no options at export!

If anyone can help with this, I'd be happy to hear your thoughts.

You can edit the Collada file as a text file, and correct relative path directly.

Thanks Areyos Alektor,

Client tried to edit DAE as a text file but without success.

Baking textures into the model has resolved the issue of file paths in DAE.
Client now reports that everything is importing correctly.

The main thing is that it works :)

Informational just rename the file to edit it in text.

Example: If the object is named "object.dae", just rename it "object.dae.txt" and then open it in a text editor.
