Add multiple textures to a collada object


I am trying to add textures and materials to a collada object. My problem is, that the collada-type only has one property for textures as a "string".

I need to know whether it is possible to add multiple texture files to a single collada object and - if it is - how to add them.

Thanks and regards,

    Hello Mark,

    Ralf is right, that you can only apply one color or one texture dynamically to a collada object. However, statically, referenced out of the collada DAE file itself, you can have any number of textures and materials. The material descriptions (color) are directly embedded in the collada file and will work out of the box (with some restrictions on the handling of the specular light component). Textures are just referenced from the collada file and they need to be part of the initial archive send the our control with the proper path. At least the VB backend impl will not be able to handle them propertly, which might require some adaptions on appl. side.

    Best regards,

    Hi Marc,

    this is not possible. You can only add a texture and change the color of a collada object.
