Thread: WebGL & x3d

    WebGL & x3d

    Ok so i what i understand so far is:

    WebGL: is a low level version of OpenGL compatible with HTML Canvas

    X3D: is an XML upgrade of VRML

    What i don't understand is the relationship between them... Can someone please verify?

    Are WebGL and X3D cross compatible? are they related to each other?

    If they aren't related to each how do i get 3d data from an editor into WebGL?

    thanx for your patience!

    Technically, X3D is just a file format. However, the X3DOM project has a player for it that runs on top of WebGL. I don't think it's in a finished state though - only one of the two very simple examples actually worked for me.

    I honestly think it is a complete waste of time - it has all of the problems of VRML for all of the same reasons.
