Has anyone had any success importing Collada DAE files from Google's 3D Warehouse?
It's been a while since I imported any. When I did I got mixed results. The ones that did import were low poly & texture detail at the time and the overall quality was all over the map, mostly on the low end side to the point of being basically painted boxes, so I abandoned playing with it at the time. The volume there meant I could only do a relatively small sampling though. There's no way I could say there aren't hidden treasures. Finding them if they are there would be the challenge I would think. Also, for backgrounds where DOF, night shots, fog, etc.. is being used some might work out well.
I've generally had better success using an obj export plugin in SketchUp than I've had using Collada files in DS...
