Status of Qt 3D
I'm a bit confused about how stock Qt relates to Qt 3D. I have downloaded Qt Creator 2.6.2 for Mac but I cannot find anything like Qt 3D. On the other hand, I read somewhere that Qt 3D is part of Qt..?
Could someone please shed some light on this?
Also, does Qt 3D support Collada files?

Did you install Qt creator only?
Than the Qt libs for creation of your own Qt applications are missing.
If you have installed the latest Qt5 SDK as found on the top of "this webpage":http://qt-project.org/downloads you have installed Qt 5.0.1 and Qt creator.
Yes, only Qt Creator. But I'm able to create my own Qt applications - I can run all the bundled examples..?
If I install the whole SDK, will it include Qt 3D?
Btw., where can I find the docs? In other words, why the following links do not mention Qt 3D?
Qt3D is not an essential module, so it is not shipped by default (it's and "Add-On module":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt-Add-ons-Modules). You need to download it separately. Or better, if you are not in a hurry, wait until Qt 5.2, when it will probably be included into Essentials (KDAB is currently maintaining the module and it is being actively developed, but requires some refactoring and updates before it can be included).
Qt 5.2 is scheduled for late 2013 (November-December).
Ahh, ok! Thanks for the clarification!
