Not much. I have dabbled with OpenGL a bit but Mike Lischke has a fabulous 3D Studio viewer that uses it. If you're just after creating things like animation and stuff (rather than coding something) then get a copy of 3D Studio and start feeling inferior (it'll do that to ya)

inthe - try using the OMAR programming language

it is very much like pascal, but it is platform independent...it is a general purpose language in theory, but in practice it has special facilities for 3D programming

I HIGHLY suggest you check it out...it would be perfect for what you are trying to do...

right now I write in this language for a living

see www.hypercosm.com for more info
