There is probably a simple answer to this, but when I use the "Export to Papervision" option from Swift 3D v.5 and I open it up in Flash CS3, all I get is a white screen. My collada object does not appear. I double checked the document class and even gave a direct class path to the Papervision export folder but I still get nothing.

One issue could be that I run Swift 3D on the Windows side of my Mac and I run Flash CS3 on the Mac side. Would this cause the problem. Also, I have pv3d 2.0 installed but the export folder already has the papervision directory files anyway so that shouldn't matter. I tried removing the class path to pv3d 2.0 in the general preferences but still nothing.

When I publish the file, I receive no Complier errors but I do get a long list of Output errors that read:

code:
 Papervision3D Beta RC1 (18.06.07)

DisplayObject3D: null
DisplayObject3D: null

I appreciate any help you are able to give.

I'm not sure whats going on with your export but "Papervision3D Beta RC1 (18.06.07)" appears to be a release candidate for Papervision 3D 1.1. I'd do a product up on you Swift 3D application (Click Web Assistant and then select Product Updates).

I have the same problem - and my Swift3D v5 is up to date (latest build 662).

I made a simple model, exported it to Papervision 3d - opened it in Flash CS3 and it worked fine 2-3 times that I did it. On the 3rd or 4th time, the model doesn't appear at all (and I don't get any errors).

Not positive if it involves V5 but see Rainwriter's reply near bottom of this thread:
