Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

System Information
64bit Manjaro Linux, kernel 3.14.27
GeForce GTX 650 Ti, driver version 343.36

Blender Version
Broken: (example: 2.73 c24b694, see splash screen)

Short description of error
When unicode characters (such as é ) are included in the names of objects when they are exported as Collada DAE files, the resulting DAE files are invalid and cannot be imported into other programs, including blender itself.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create a cube object
  2. Append a é or ¢ onto the end of the cube's name.
  3. Export the cube as a Collada DAE file.
  4. Try to import the DAE back into Blender.

Collada importer/exported does not currently have maintainer so all the issues goes to the TODO list there http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:2.5/Source/Development/Todo/Import_Export

Thanks for the report anyway!

Maybe i am slow, but i am a maintainer.

@Gaia Clary (gaiaclary), i remember you wanted to stop dealing with collada bugs. So are you back and ready to fix'em all? :)
