CityEngine + WebGL integration

Hello to everyone. I would like to build a 3d City with the tool called CityEngine by Esri and I would like to convert the cityscape into a WebGL project. Is there an easy way to do this ? Someone has been able to do it already and you can see the result here :

New York City 2259 is a WebGL demo by Aleksandar Rodic, a former WebGL developer at Google. The cityscape is a product of the CityEngine application and has been converted using Processing and is displayed using three.js

it says that the city has been converted using Processing and displayed using three.js. What is this "Processing" ? What's the conversion procedure ? Do you have more informations about how to do this kind of operation ? Thanks.

It is done with canvas. The processing is jquery scripting to define the metric, geometry and location of all the elements and the math to automate it throught three planes.  

Unless you have experience with canvas and jquery; you have a big learning curve and you might want to start with something less ambitious.

someone has created a python script to extract the coordinates from a blender model,like the facial animation. I would like to change the face used by Anton with another one. Is it an hard operation to do ? Now the script does not work,but when it is fixed,it will do the mathematic calculations for me ? I'm trying to find some way to reduce the learning curve.

I'm not an expert in python, but I have not seen canvas manipulated by anything but jquery so good luck with the "shortcut".

Even if you are successful your understanding will be limited to a tiny corner of Web Development because you will still lack an understanding of the underlying basic.  Your shortcuts just mean a short list of tools you can understand and use.

Nope. I'm brute forced to study HTML 5 + WebGL + JScript + Canvas and so on,but at least with the python scripts I can avoid to learn and do the math calculations.
