Abstract:


    Prerequisites
    Basic knowledge of 3D computer graphics such as that provided by SIGGRAPH’s introductory course. Basic understanding of the World Wide Web. Beginners knowledge of XML and VRML is helpful, but not required.

    Topics
    Basics of Web-based 3D graphics with a focus on X3D. Fundamentals of X3D specification, profiles, animation, tools and authoring. X3D Software Development Kit (SDK) is used to demonstrate X3D authoring. 

    Description
    X3D (eXtensible 3D graphics) is the open standard for interactive 3D graphics on the World Wide Web. X3D uses current web standards and technologies to describe 3D shapes, textures, animation, and interactivity viewable in a browser. Participants build their own world using X3D-Edit and leave this course with the basic knowledge to begin using the tools and libraries to build their own 3D worlds.
