COLLADA exporter does not export GROUP instances
Open, Confirmed, MediumPublic


System Information
win64 8.1 gtx titan

Blender Version
blender-2.76.0-git.f81bc88-AMD64 (16 january 2016)

Short description of error
the exported .dae file does not seem to include any geometry information when exporting Group instances

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  • default scene, add a few objects, a cube, monkey, etc
  • add them all to the same group
  • now create a Group instance
  • select only the Group instance (the Empty object)
  • export to DAE (enable Object instances)
  • check the .dae file

You may also test with the attached .blend file.

Thank you !
