Anyone at Apple found an answer yet?


The camera does not work when using Sketchup export collada.

I found this out when iBooks first appeared.


The view of the item is different to one set in Sketchup. With or wothout a camera.

I cannot set it using a camera so that iBooks reads/understnads the collada file, even though Apple's states  to use a camera, on its web page 3D help for collada in iBooks.


The default view in ibook is not changeable or settable after using a 3D model in ibooks.


I've tried other progams too, to preset the oinitial view, and even tried to edit the code manually.

I hoped OSX update would provide a solution but no.


C'mon guys - a little code fix would help a lot.
