Dear Blender Developers,

I just joined the mailing list, my name is Stefano Corazza, CTO @ Mixamo 
I want to start thanking all of you for the fantastic effort you are 
putting in such a great open source project and product, democratizing 
the creative process benefits the world.

The topic is this email is Collada 1.4.1 importer for Blender.
We have found that the standard Collada importer/exporter Blender comes 
with is not compliant with Collada 1.4.1 specifications and fails in 
many cases in importing rigged characters and animation. At Mixamo we 
have conducted a diligence and found that the best Collada 1.4.1 plugin 
for Blender available now is the one you can download here:

We paid for the OS X port and we recently acquired the source code and 
the right to it. We are at the moment "cleaning the code" to solve a few 
things we had to work around when we created Mixamo FBX -> Collada 1.4.1 

We are interested in making the plugin the source code available and 
make the Collada 1.4.1 importer included in the standard build of Blender.

Please let me know what you think, I can provide more details.

Thank you.
Best regards,
