Man thank you! This exporter right here just saved me so much time!

I had a very case-specific issue importing certain meshes attached to a rig from Blender to Torque. The problem was the sub-meshes had multiple modifiers in the stack ( i.e. mirror, armature, etc. ) and upon import into Torque some of the meshes could distort when animating.

Anyhow, with this tool I was able to export the Armature data separately and all of the modifier data was properly preserved!! Looking at hooking in 100's of animations across several meshes, this is a must have for me right now! Thank you so much for posting!

Not sure what problem you're seeing deathbravo, but that page loads for me, though I grabbed the exporter by downloading the project from the github page, so if the page still isn't loading for you, you can try that.

And yeah, I recently gave this a real look and it works perfectly. Good find!

i am not sure.
both of the links in the first post of this thread give me 'The requested page cannot be found';
then I google and got the link I posted.

maybe I have bad luck, since the garagegames' forum gives me 'EXCEPTION: (index.php).........'.

I also am getting a Page not Found page. Anyway I got it from the github page and I can't seem to install it. It says "Multiple Addons using the same name found"

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Jason: Maybe a previous version is sitting in your Blender addons folder. Check the folder option to view hidden files and follow this path:
C:\Users\(your account)\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.77\scripts\addons
Once in there look for a folder called "io_scene_dae".
Also, you can check your blender preferences "add-ons" tab; just search for "better" and see if it comes up.
And here's a DB link to the Better Collada Exporter zip file:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/xkwcz8jjt7lojtt/Godot_v2.0.1_stable_better_collada.zip?dl=0
Choose the "install from file" option in the "add-ons" tab in Blender preferences.
