# Set the name of an animation in collada to be used by AssImp

I am using the collada file format to contain my model and animation but when I use AssImp to load the file the name will be empty for the animation. Where is the name for animation set on the collada file format? The documentation seems to have pointed me to library_animations but I tried setting "name" and "id", but both did not end up setting the animation name.

To get the animation name I am simply doing

        aiAnimation* animation = mAIScene->mAnimations[i];
auto test = animation->mName;

• What are you using to export the file? The problem might be the exporter. – sjaustirni Jul 27 '15 at 11:14
