what is what
Posted on 2001-06-15
I'm merely a Web programmer so I don't know much of the available technology in 3d applications.
I've been doing a trawl of the available software out there and have categorised them into three categories:
--3d Authoring tools - for generating lovely 3d images
--3d Creation tools - for making the 3d images do interesting things
--3d Creation tools that use the Web Browsers to run. eg via web plugins.
I've also come across a tool called SDL (Simple DirectMedia Layer). Has anyone heard of it and say what it is.
Also if anyone can recommend any Web 3d engines that they know and trust, please say.
