No, but one idea popped to mind, for the Generic Editor Framework concept^. If on the scengraph you try and drag an object from X3D to collada or vice-versa, instead of it being impossible, perhaps a converter such as assimp could attempt to convert, so you can drag across format boundaries.

> One fuzzy idea is a framework for editing, that takes plugins for each 'content/context type'.
> Then allows you to recurse into sub-contexts of same or different context type, (and pop back out).
> For example lets say you have a cityGML or KML scene, and some nodes in the scene are VRML/x3d. You pick that node, and hit a button to push that content/context type editor -and that node - onto a stack. You may get to choose between optional editors for that context/content type. Your menus change in response. Lets say you are in vrml/X3D. And lets say you want to edit an ImageTexture image. You do something similar there and get an image editor. Then pop back out. Similarly with a geometry node.

> Description: "Importer library to import assets from different common 3D file formats such as Collada, Blend, Obj, X, 3DS, LWO, MD5, MD2, MD3, MDL, MS3D and a lot of other formats. The data is stored in an own in-memory data-format, which can be easily processed.
> http://www.open3mod.com is a 3D model viewer and exporter based on Assimp that is also Open Source."
> Gee anyone want to adapt a loader to also handle X3D?

> We probably should create a list of possible projects and goals that have potential to offer shared value for everyone.
