For Game support Collada is better if I recall. One of the good things about FBX SDK is that it can import / export the Collada format also.

I'm checking out swig and the sdk, I need to understand it first. I will eventually post here very dumb questions on how to get things from Blender using Python or how to set them ... I'm not that confortable with Blender coding, but if I want to learn it, might aswell be doing something useful.

Critical Issue

Export of skeletal animation via either Collada or FBX (don't care which) is, to me, the biggest problem with Blender. Don't make me switch to Maya! I want to use Blender, but unless I can export my rigged characters it's a DEAD END. This is the most important thing holding back widespread Blender adoption for commercial work, IMHO. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help.

thank you

This may be a 'critical issue', but it has only been one since 2005 or so when the Collada spec was published. ( I can't find the exact date). Besides, Maya is a fine product. No reason why you should not use it.

disclaimer: I am not familiar with Blender's Collada import/export scripts and have no personal knowlege of their features or limitations.
